From online predators looming around waiting for their next victim to harassment and cyberbullying, these and several other issues are  waiving a red flag for parents, teachers,and education stakeholders to take an immediate action and make digital citizenship an essential component in the curriculum. Kids need to be aware of these risks and should be taught on how to surf the net safely.

The survey really does not tell us much about what teachers think about edtech. It tells us teachers own and use certain tools more than the general adult population. I know people in the general adult population who use the digital tools well and teachers who do, as well. It does not mean all do. It means some do. We interact with a ton of teachers on social media is not a rigorous conclusion driven out of sound quantitative research.

Build It But Will They Teach?: Strategies for Increasing Faculty Participation & Retention in Online & Blended Education

Summary from Academica Top Ten - Thu 10 July 2010

Case study offers advice for engaging faculty in online and blended learning initiatives

A new study from researchers at Drexel University and Armstrong Atlantic State University offers guidance on improving faculty participation and retention in online andblended education formats. Taking Armstrong Atlantic State University as a case study, the paper notes that faculty with little distance education experience may have preconceived negative attitudes toward online and blended education. AASU faced low faculty interest and participation in its online learning initiative, and undertook 4 initiatives to help win them over. The university held open sessions to make a strong case for online and blended learning; it renamed the Office of Online Learning the Office of Online & Blended Learning; it rebranded its online learning bootcamp as a “teaching fellows program,” and spread its duration out from 4 weeks to 8–12 weeks; and it launched an institutional study to identify and address factors that motivated and inhibited faculty participation. The report offers 8 recommendations for institutions looking to win faculty support for online and blended learning initiatives. Full Report
