A Great Guide on Teaching Students about Digital Footprint

A Great Guide on Teaching Students about Digital Footprint | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

Have you ever Googled yourself ? Have you ever checked your virtual identity? Do you know that you leave a digital footprint every time you get online? Do you know that whatever you do online is accumulated into a digital dossier traceable by others ? These and several other similar questions are but the emerging tip of the sinking iceberg.One that is packed full of concerns related to issues of our online identity and privacy issues.

I plan to use this in my classroom. I'd like my students to do some critical thinking. 

Sharla Shults's curator insight, April 26, 2013 2:45 PM

This is sizzlin'! When we are first born, our physical handprint and footprint become part of our birth record. As we grow and learn, our digital footprint defines our lives: who we are, what we stand for, when we meet and greet others, where we have been, why we think as we do and how we inspire/motivate others, whether positively or negatively.

 

What are you leaving behind? Are you prepared to be Googled...by your parents, grandparents, friends, future employers?

Raising Young Critical Thinkers in the Digital Age

Raising Young Critical Thinkers in the Digital Age | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it
Teaching kids how to curate information and discern what's trustworthy from what's bogus is a really important lesson for parents nowadays.

So it’s time to learn the art of curating the terabytes of content humans are bombarded with on a regular basis – it’s a survival skill and one that will provide an incredibly important advantage to kids in schools and the workplace of the future.

Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it
I am interested in this post and post on critical thinking. Is critical thinking a skill?  Can one teach critical thinking? Stephen has delivered the course on Critical Literacies MOOC in the past....

 

Robert H. Ennis, Author of The Cornell Critical Thinking Tests
“Critical thinking is reasonable, reflective thinking that is focused on deciding what to believe and do.”

 

Assuming that critical thinking is reasonable reflective thinking focused on deciding what to believe or do, a critical thinker:

 

1. Is open-minded and mindful of alternatives
2. Tries to be well-informed
3. Judges well the credibility of sources
4. Identifies conclusions, reasons, and assumptions
5. Judges well the quality of an argument, including the acceptability of its reasons, assumptions, and evidence
6. Can well develop and defend a reasonable position
7. Asks appropriate clarifying questions
8. Formulates plausible hypotheses; plans experiments well
9. Defines terms in a way appropriate for the context
10. Draws conclusions when warranted, but with caution
11. Integrates all items in this list when deciding what to believe or do

 

What are the principles of critical thinking?

 

- Knowledge is acquired only through thinking, reasoning, and questioning. Knowledge is based on facts.


- It is only from learning how to think that you learn what to think.


- Critical thinking is an organized and systematic process used to judge the effectiveness of an argument.


- Critical thinking is a search for meaning.


- Critical thinking is a skill that can be learned.


- Do the above principles hold true and won’t change from one domain to the next?

David Luigi FUSCHI's comment, April 9, 2013 12:21 AM
Are we sure that Critical Thinking is really appreciated as it should? In my personal experience critical thinker are often opposed if not hunted. Deciding to be a critical thinker may have a high price especially in certain context like industry or management. Definitely it brings better results and can easily foster innovation, but it is hated by man of power and yes-men. I pride myself of constantly trying to be a critical thinker and most of all to be critical of myself and my actions, but I have to say that this has taken me quite a toll in my life, yet I do not regret it. Sorry for stepping in, I do hope this two-penny thought could help in sparkle some discussion on how to foster critical thinking.

Students Blogging Safely Online 

Students Blogging Safely Online  | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

My students are now blogging online! It’s quite exciting. We started by working through the blogging concept and process using paper blogs and a week later, we put those same ideas on our class blog.

 

But first, we needed to make sure we were safe! In fact, I first had to have multiple meetings with my principal, the technology teacher and integration specialist – understandably so! This is a big step when it’s the first time young students will be putting themselves out there. But I made a few assurances that using kidblog.org would be safe. First, I designed this go around so that all the students’ posts would only go live after I approved them. I also made certain that would be the case for all the comments. In addition, I created our classes blog so that the posts would only be viewable by our classmates when they are logged on. In other words, it’s a closed blog.

 

No one can see our posts, just us.

Beginners IT-Security Guide

Beginners IT-Security Guide | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

In 21st Century we need not ONLY talking about Internet-Safety, Online-Safety and IT-Security, but we need to secure our computers and ANY other related device connecting to Internet, such as also our smartphones! I will present you now a tutorial on How-To create best protection (as on March 2012) for your computer and this with mostly FREE tools and FREE Online Services…

 

Also will I provide you a worksheet which helps you planning your weekly tasks!

 

In 21st Century while using "Bring Your Own Device" (Hashtag for Twitter = #BYOD) there is a MUST to know about basic IT-Security knowledge! The teachers role is NOT anymore to be the MOST important person, but the LEARNER! So the teacher needs to have that basic knowledge to share it with its learners and to try to keep a safe Learning Workspace... Online and Offline, in the "internal learning network" and also in the "external learning network"!

 

As Teachers, Educators and Instructors we have to deal with Apps, OpenSource software, Freeware, different OS devices, so we need to know about the risks and dangers! We need to know how to get protected these devices also!

 

It's not ONLY the IT-Admin's responsibility, IT-Security is the responsibility of ALL of us!!!

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

Gone are the days when planning and thinking were done mainly by pen and paper.Technology have made it pretty much easier to think in different other ways. Free mind mapping , brainstorming and concept mapping applications are ubiquitous online and more and more teachers are using them . The 21st century education is based , on a large part of it, on the visual output.

 

The benefits of graphic organizers in education

 

- Teachers can use graphic organizers to engage visual learners and help them organize their thoughts


- Graphic organizers help students make powerful connections between ideas and concepts


- They help students develop their convergent thinking by providing a framework for the development of new ideas through analysis, reflection and display.


- They also help students promote their divergent thinking by using such techniques as brianstorming to generate ideas.


- They can be used for developing vocabulary skills and improve reading, writing and communication skills.


- Students can easily learn new concepts and think in new novel ways using graphic organizers


- They help students focus on connections rather than words 

 

- Finally , graphic organizers can help both teachers and students develop creative and critical thinking skills.
