Interesting read. We do need to teach how to behave within social networking as much as we teach respect and consideration in life.

Using the analogy of teaching a student to drive, this article makes some great points about the teaching of digital citizenship. I think the inference is also for secondary.

Google's Schmidt: Teens' mistakes will never go away

Google's Schmidt: Teens' mistakes will never go away | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
Speaking at a festival in the U.K., Google's executive chairman offers that the things teens do now will stay with them forever, by way of the Web. He also suggested some people are sharing too much online.

 

It must be peculiar for children of the Internet age.

They are the first to have a complete record of their whole lives. They are the first who'll be able to offer concrete proof of every one of their days, friends, and actions.

 

Eric Schmidt worries, however, that they'll be the first who'll never be allowed to forget their mistakes.

Part of our responsibility as teachers is to prepare our learners for their future. Helping them to understand that the Internet has a very long memory is pato of that role.

We must now educate on how to use all these new tools and try to make to make our teens understand that they should give a second thought to what they publish in the web. Difficult? of course! Educating was never an easy job.

The Future of Mobility [Infographic]

The Future of Mobility [Infographic] | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

An astounding 80 percent of the world’s population now has a mobile phone—and 84 percent is unwilling to go a single day without their phone. About 45 percent of Americans say they can’t go more than a few hours without checking their phones. In 2012 there were five billion mobile phones in the world—1.8 billion of these were smart phones.

 

Facebook now reaches 76 percent of the smartphone market, and it accounts for 23 percent of total time spent using apps each month.

The next five most used applications are Google apps, and they account for 10 percent of app usage time. One of the latest smartphone trends is that things are getting less touchy but more sensitive. Gestures and other non-tap inputs are on the rise. Casting a sidelong glance, for example, can pause a video. Some apps are being developed that will switch from manual to voice to text to gesture, depending on what you are doing...

Mobile Commerce:

> Roughly 58% of smartphone users have made purchases on their smartphones.

> These Mobile Shoppers typically use smartphones for 50 to 60% of the Shopping."

Katie Muirhead's curator insight, August 20, 2014 12:17 PM

Seeking to manage our attention and avoid distraction is one thing, but first we need to be aware of where our attention is going. As smartphones are increasingly used, this infographic highlights in just what way we use our phones. 1 in 5 people check their phone every ten minutes... something tells me that the smartphone may be one of the biggest sources of modern distraction!
