The ABCs of Digital Citizenship - TeachThought

The ABCs of Digital Citizenship - TeachThought | The library | Scoop.it

"In thinking recently of all of the different strands of digital citizenship–human, legal, media-based, technological, and so on–it occurred to me that citizenship online was really not much different than citizenship in person.

That is, it’s complicated."

Flipped classroom <>flipped school library

Flipped classroom <>flipped school library | The library | Scoop.it

Flipping the classroom changes the place in which content is delivered. If the teacher assigns lecture-type, frontal instruction–in the form of video, simulations, slidecasts, readings, podcasts–as homework, then class time can be used interactively. The class becomes conversation space, creation space, space where teachers actively facilitate learning.

Flipping frees face-to-face classroom time for interactive and applied learning, activities that inspire critical thinking, exploration, inquiry, discussion, collaboration, problem solving.  So, the classroom and the library become more learner-centered.

Pinterest is changing the way many teachers teach. They are connecting on Pinterest in a different way then they are connecting on other social media sites. Love this Pinterest to Blooms!
