"The following infographic from dailygenius.com makes sense, then, in that context of being able to sketch out what might be required of a digitally-savvy and competent teacher. (You can give dailygenius a follow on twitter as well."
Turn your PowerPoint presentation into an interactive online lesson. We call this a mix. Everything you need to create and share your mix is included. Add audio and video of yourself giving your presentation, write on slides as you talk to them, insert quizzes, practice exercises, and more – all from within PowerPoint. It’s like a screencast, but better. All you need is Office 2013 and the free Office Mix add-in.

Natalie Broadbent's insight:
I know of many students who, for some reason or another, miss out on quite a bit of schooling over the years and as a result, fall behind in subjects such as English and maths, both of which are quite difficult to pick up if you miss out on the basics. Maths in particular is very difficult to pick up if you have missed out on several basic steps along the way.I love the idea of the Khan Academy as it allows students to learn at their own pace and become masters of a topic before they move on to the next.
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.
Classroom management is a challenging skill which I consistently strive to improve on a regular basis. Often, people believe that managing a classroom that has employed technology requires a whole new approach and skill set. However, I have found that many traditional methods of classroom management readily translate to the technological rich schoolroom – with some slight modification.
