20 Basic Rules For Digital Citizenship

20 Basic Rules For Digital Citizenship | 21st c Teaching and learning with technology | Scoop.it
“ The definition of digital citizenship has to do with the quality of behaviors that impact the quality of digital content and communities. To help clarify what that “quality” can look like, knowthenet.org.uk put together the following infographic framed around Dos and Don’ts. While seemingly written for a more general audience than students and educators, the thinking is sound, including “Treat others they way you want to be treated,” “Don’t forget the human behind the screen,” “Listen first, talk later,” and “Use proper grammar.” (Yes, please do.) Overall it’s a bit basic, but it does take the important step of moving beyond rhetoric to offer concrete tips to realize the idea. ”20 Basic Rules For Digital Citizenship

The SAMR Ladder Through the Lens of 21st Century Skills - Getting Smart

The SAMR Ladder Through the Lens of 21st Century Skills - Getting Smart | 21st c Teaching and learning with technology | Scoop.it

"This summer I have been digging deeper into the SAMR  model of tech integration to help educators embrace 1:1 learning and the changes it will bring about. SAMR is a truly useful tool for helping teachers identify their current comfort zone in order to build expertise in designing efficient and effective student learning experiences. To reach higher levels on the SAMR ladder, teachers can make some planning and instructional shifts. A look at the big picture is helpful when trying to understand how to help students develop important 21st Century Skills at each level."

You should read this article because it's one of the few on school reform that goes "blue sky, no holds barred" kind of thinking.  Whether what the author suggests will work where you live is then worth thinking about and comparing.

 

Possibility thinking.

We have to change as society's needs change. We can't become stuck in an old educational system just because it worked for us.
