“Combining 21st Century Skills, Project Based Learning, and iPads” at the 2012 Mobile Learning Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, on April 13, 2012. The blogger's THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS ARE IN ALL CAPS.

 

The official conference session description was:

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” -Alan Watts. Learn what one technology team experienced from initiation to implementation of iPads in a school in the heart of Coconut Grove, Florida. “Computer teachers” have transformed into “technology integrators” and move from within the lab to the classroom, the campus, and beyond.

Digital identity in the 21st century | Welcome to Digital ID wiki

Digital identity in the 21st century | Welcome to Digital ID wiki | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

We've created the Digital ID wiki to provide students, teachers, and administrators with a toolkit of reliable information, resources, and guidelines to help all of us learn how to be upstanding Digital Citizens who maintain a healthy Digital Identity (ID) in the 21st Century.

 

Our goal is to help our students answer these three Essential Questions:

 

What does it mean to be a (digital) citizen?
What are my rights as a citizen?
What are my responsibilities as a citizen?
