The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway

The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway | Transforming Ed | Scoop.it
At one time in the not so distant past there were no cell phones. And then everything changed at a rate faster than the speed of amending a student handbook. I can distinctly remember the first time one of my 8th grade students brought a cell phone to school. It really wasn’t that big of a deal, more of a novelty really. I mean one student with a cell phone had next to no bearing on our day to day school operations. But then a second student brought a cell phone.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 24, 5:15 AM

"The real way technology challenges us is the impact of misbehavior. The scope and reach is immediate and vast. An infraction that in the analog world would constitute a small gaff can become a full blown media incident in our digital age. What technology has done is taken the social consequences and amplified them beyond the capacity of many of our students to comprehend.  It’s taken what historically has been pretty low price tag infractions and inflated them at a rate many of us are unprepared to deal with. Consequences we engineer should teach.  The consequences brought about by the ramifications of misuse of technology often do not teach. They often do damage. We really have very little control of the coarse reaction the world drops on our children.

What it hasn’t changed is how a good person conducts themselves. Teaching and reinforcing how we want our student to conduct themselves is absolutely within our control. Keep teaching those expectations. Focus on the core character principles you want to foster in your students. Don’t be scared of the technology access. Teach your students how they apply to the technology they use. Know that we probably can’t anticipate what innovation will bring next. Technology and progress will not slow its pace. Chances are the fundamental values of citizenship will address it no matter what. Don’t rest on teaching good citizenship as part of all interactions. Expect the same conduct face to face and screen to screen and biotech interface to biotech interface. Teaching our students attributes like compassion and empathy and responsibility addresses our digital dilemmas, even the ones we haven’t seen yet."

Here is a link to explain the SAMR model of technology in education. It goes from just swapping an iPad for a pencil, for example, to being able to do something that would have never been possible if the technology were not present. It is great for evaluating where you and your classroom skill levels are.

Why You Should Use Video In Education - Infographic

Why You Should Use Video In Education - Infographic | Transforming Ed | Scoop.it
When I was a student, ‘using video in education’ mostly meant showing a movie in class. Which to me, as a student, was clearly much better than the alternative of a lecture. With so much interactive multimedia technology available to today’s students, ‘video in education’ means way more than it used to. The handy infographic …

Radio and not video was the diet of my upbringing. The ability to visualize a story, in my view, is the consequence of that upbringing as I had to create scenes of what I heard, in my mind. The question that this article does not answer is how the ability to tell stories that truly communicates is hampered by the excessive use of video in education.

Teaching computer science - without touching a computer - The Hechinger Report

Teaching computer science - without touching a computer - The Hechinger Report | Transforming Ed | Scoop.it

"A group of children on a playground, each kid clutching a slip of paper with a number on it, moves along a line drawn in chalk, comparing numbers as they go and sorting themselves into ascending order from one to ten.

 

Another group of children, sitting in a circle, passes pieces of fruit — an apple, an orange — from hand to hand until the color of the fruit they’re holding matches the color of the T-shirt they’re wearing.

 

It may not look like it, but the children engaged in these exercises are learning computer science. In the first activity, they’ve turned themselves into a sorting network: a strategy computers use to sort random numbers into order. And in the second activity, they’re acting out the process by which computer networks route information to its intended destination.

 

Both are from a project called Computer Science Unplugged, which endeavors to teach students computer science without using computers."

When teachers engage students in these activities, the engage multiple senses as the children learn through doing in a different way. It is transferring skills, perhaps synthesizing them.

Indispensable iPad Apps for Teachers Professional Development ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Transforming Ed | Scoop.it

"The concept of teacher professional development has radically changed due to the boom in digital technologies and social media websites. The web now is replete with a variety of professional learning networks and communities of practice on almost any topic you think of. There is also another type of portals that have seen the light recently and which offer massive courses and trainings on different subjects, these are MOOCs. MOOCs are a great way for growing professionally particularly that most of the courses they offer are free. I have already featured some interesting MOOC resources that teachers can use for the enhancement of their PD and today I want to share with you some wonderful iPad apps that will allow you to pursue your PD on the go."

Angie Tarasoff's curator insight, May 30, 11:02 AM

Here's what's missing from this analysis: STUDENTS.


I increasingly wonder if nearly as much thought is being given to the needs of students by Ed Tech entrepreneurs and developers. The emphasis here is on Instructional technology tools, not learning technology.


These things are different, are driven by a different set of problems and perspectives.


Learning technology may be the undiscovered country.


The problem is the business model - learning technologies should meet student needs, but would have to be purchased by someone else: an educator or school district.


More thinking required on this one.
