MOVE FROM THE COMMUNAL TO THE SOCIAL


  • Social Media means socializing
  • Socializing means individuals being themselves
  • Being yourself means having opinions

If people can't speak their minds in a responsible way then why did you hire them?

The tools all exist - pick any flavour and 'let your people go!'
Good old fashioned communalizing will keep them responsible.

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Social media and education | Scoop.it

By Ferris Jabr

 

"How exactly does the technology we use to read change the way we read? How reading on screens differs from reading on paper is relevant not just to the youngest among us, but to just about everyone who reads—to anyone who routinely switches between working long hours in front of a computer at the office and leisurely reading paper magazines and books at home; to people who have embraced e-readers for their convenience and portability, but admit that for some reason they still prefer reading on paper; and to those who have already vowed to forgo tree pulp entirely. As digital texts and technologies become more prevalent, we gain new and more mobile ways of reading—but are we still reading as attentively and thoroughly? How do our brains respond differently to onscreen text than to words on paper? Should we be worried about dividing our attention between pixels and ink or is the validity of such concerns paper-thin?"

I loved the part about mind mapping and the meta-cognitive things we do before we start reading. Great article with research-based facts.

Sunflower Foundation's curator insight, June 20, 2013 3:32 AM

I think that, given time, our brains will adapt. The generation now in primary school are hardwiring their brains from toddlerhood. But for older readers, my own experience is that while the screen grabs the brain and gets me reading, I don't necessarily read attentively.

It might also increase differences between poor and wealthy as those with access to multiple devices may develop differently to those without. But the jury is still out as to who will have the advantage.

Computer Safety for Kids & Teens

Computer Safety for Kids & Teens | Social media and education | Scoop.it

By Emma Kavanagh

 

The Internet provides us with an abundant amount of educational information, entertainment, and can connect us with people throughout the entire world. As wonderful as the Internet can be, it can also be a dangerous place for children and teens. When using the Internet, one must be careful about sharing any form of personal information because unfortunately the Internet can be a platform for cyber criminals to target kids, teens, and young adults. The most common types of criminals found on the web include (online predators), identity thieves, cyberbullies, and hackers. In order to protect your children and loved to the fullest extent one must take all the necessary precautions when using a computer.

Fighting plagiarism is serious business.

What will generation Y be like as managers?  Some argue that when Generation Y becomes managers they will adapt the same behaviors and practices as the rest of us.  “Wait till they grow up and have real responsibility!.  That will teach ‘em”.  While this line of thinking seems to make sense because GenerationY will be in the same life stage (married, kids, etc) as the managers before them, it doesn’t take into account the tremendous shifts in the world of work.
