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.

Social Media Belongs in the Classroom

Social Media Belongs in the Classroom | Socialmedia in schools | Scoop.it

Teachers who resist using social media in the classroom are stripping their students of an essential component of their future success. Avoiding – or worse, banning – social media platforms for students prohibits them from being successful professionals in fields like accounting, chemistry, the arts and more.

Does Jackie French really understand schools? Her concern is admirable, but expecting students to be at the same level in a given cohort is ridiculous. Apparently teachers are failing students if they are not at the same level as their peers!

10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media | Big Ideas in Education | Socialmedia in schools | Scoop.it

"It is always interesting to me, to find out that more and more of our younger students are becoming involved with the Internet and Social Media.  Due to their developmental age, most students have some kind of difficulty with self-management throughout childhood. But, this is to be expected with children. They simply lack the maturity, brain development, and personal experience to understand how to manage themselves in every situation in real life, let alone online."

Teaching primary kids about social media - good reason to have TLs in schools teaching information literacy.

This educator describes how Scoop.it can be the tool by which you teach students to gather, manage, and evaluate information. I 100% agree with his caveat at the bottom that Scoop.it doesn't do the teaching but because it is so simple and seamless and allows for so much interaction and feedback between student curator and instructor, it is the perfect medium for it.

A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify

A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify | Socialmedia in schools | Scoop.it

Sherry Stones is presenting the workshop: “A Flipped Classroom: Students as Curators with Storify”.

Storify will be used to demonstrate design multimodal/multimedia research-based assignments, due to its features such as Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos.  

Most of the expected outcomes of the workshop can be associated to teaching and learning in general.

Important ideas:

a) Storify has a great educational potential;

b) You can organize Storify content based on theme or topic;

c) You can easily embed Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos;

d) It helps students develop research, synthesis and presentation skills;

f) It helps students to evaluate the credibility and relevance of web sources;

g) It enables teachers to set assignments and rubric;

h) You can embed a Storify page into a Blog;

i) Other types of Open Access Content are great for embedding on Storify, such as: Xtranormal, Goanimate, Animoto animations; Infographics and Flicker images; Google Docs; Vimeo, Big Think, and Academic Earth videos; Webcomics; Prezi and Google Slideshows; Learning Objects.
