Cindy Powell's insight:

From Infographic...and Informational Text TCC 4-5

This is a graphic example for the article, but the site is a cybersafety site in the UK and has lots of information for parents about online safety for their children. It also tests their knowledge.

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, August 25, 2013 10:32 AM

Excellent guidelines to go by. The internet is such a reflection of what goes on in the human mind, from bright and genius ideas and behavior, to dark and stupid. I'd rather be on the bright side.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, September 24, 2013 5:46 PM

Manners do matter.

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, October 20, 2014 10:53 PM

It is important to build your own brand and to promote yourself positively. You want to be polite to other users and make sure you have nothing on your profile that could be damaging to your reputation. This includes swear words, inappropriate or rude comments, and pictures and videos of drinking or drugs.  This is really important for graduating students who, most likely, need to go through and delete pictures that have been tagged in one Facebook

Make sure you give credit to others if you share something of theirs. Also make sure you are writing your own posts and not just sharing others. However, make sure you are posting valuable and relevant information. Listen and think before you write and make sure you are using proper english. 

It is okay to have debates on social netowrks with other users, everybody has the right ti voice their opinion, but don't let things get too personal or nasty. 

It is also essential to understand that there are also hings to be very careful of when using social networks. For one, people are not always who they seem. You should also make sure you do not assume a false identity. It is important to keep some kind of professionalism, but don't change yourself or hide who you really are. 

You must also make sure you are abiding by the rules of the network and report others who dont. 

Last but certainly not least, be very careful about who you share things with. There are certain places to share certain things. For example, you may post something bout your personal life in your Facebook status, but it is not appropriate to do so on your LinkedIn profile. Do not share pictures and videos with strangers, you never know how they will use these.

Plickers Response Cards

Plickers Response Cards | Tech Cadre Corner | Scoop.it

Plickers is a powerfully simple tool that lets teachers collect real-time formative assessment data without the need for student devices

Cindy Powell's insight:

From Cindy's Links & Sidebar TCC 5-4

I learned about this site from two teachers at Scranton Elementary School in our district. Students get a card, you scan their answers with your Android (at the moment iOs App is in transition) device. The website allows you to print cards, but you can get some durable ones at Amazon. Very cool and easy.

It has come to the attention of the Discus Office that the current statewide username and password for home access to the Discus resources has been published on Internet webpages and has led to unauthorized access to Credo Reference.
