Getting Sneaky About Digital Citizenship

Getting Sneaky About Digital Citizenship | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
Dear Teachers, I met with a librarian friend of mine today to brainstorm ways to get digital citizenship embedded in lots of different areas of her school. She confided to me that she wanted to INFILTRATE her school with her digital citizenship efforts. Isn't that a great word? I mean, seriously: unless you are leading…

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy for The Web

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy for The Web | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
Bloom's Digital Taxonomy for The Web is another of our most popular posts of 2016. The visual features a number of key educational web tools to digitally operationalize Bloom's thinking levels. For each of these thinking levels ( creating, evaluating, analyzing, applying, understanding, and remembering) we came up with five web tools that better correspond with it.

Blogs: Do They Serve Any Real Purpose? | #Blogging #ICT #Communication #LEARNing2LEARN #LEARNingByDoing

Blogs: Do They Serve Any Real Purpose? | #Blogging #ICT #Communication #LEARNing2LEARN #LEARNingByDoing | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
Does the average person even know or understand what a blog is? Do professionals understand how blogs influence their profession? Are teachers using blogs as both relevant reading and writing tools? Are students using blogs to create their voice? Do people in general see any importance in blogging to reflect, question, criticize, or improve the world in which we live?

Do blogs have a value in our world today that is at least understood, if not appreciated, by those who should? Does the access to blogs require too much tech savvy, critical thinking, and a mindset different from the 20th Century to prevent the acceptance of blogs as a change force in our 21st Century world?

 

Will a large enough group of people even read this post to make a difference or will people need to print it out to share copies with others?
