Cidadania Digital – Helping kids to be better digital citizens/Copyright

Cidadania Digital – Helping kids to be better digital citizens/Copyright | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

Being the month when we celebrate World Intellectual Property Day (WIPO), it’s the perfect time to dedicate some thought to intellectual property online and intellectual property rights. The fluidity of contents on the internet, and the sophistication of information and communication technologies, allow access opportunities never seen before, but alongside this is often a disregard for the rights of those who created the content.

 

This sometimes happens deliberately, but most of the time it is simply because the user doesn’t think about it!

 

In Portugal, in order to raise awareness on this theme, Microsoft, in a partnership with the Ministry of Education (both partners in the Portuguese Safer Internet Centre), created the Cidadania Digital website.

 

This resource offers a curriculum tool to be used by teachers with students in 8th and 10th grade on how to be a good digital citizen.

 

===> This includes using/sharing creative content, while respecting intellectual property. <===

The Ethics and Responsibilities of the 21st Century Classroom: Part One

The Ethics and Responsibilities of the 21st Century Classroom: Part One | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

When I think about the “ethics and responsibilities of the 21st century classroom,” I think not only about our ethical responsibilities toward students but about our ethical responsibilities toward teachers. I am very concerned that the drop-out rate of K-12 teachers is even higher than the drop-out rate of K-12 students in the U.S. and in many other countries around the world.

 

As I’ve gone around the U.S. and abroad talking with teachers, I’ve seen over and over how beleaguered they are: by (a) too many rules, (b) too many constantly-changing systems and theories, by (c) too many “learning objectives,” by (d) too much pressure to deliver “content,” by (e) too many expectations about high test scores (on standardized tests that often do not measure real learning and content), by (f) ever-escalating and rigid standards of “accountability,” and, added to all of this, by (g) too much faddish, expensive new technology dumped not only on kids but on teachers as if the technology itself magically will take care of a, b, c, d, e, and f.

Your Digital Footprint — iKeepSafe

Your Digital Footprint — iKeepSafe | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

Understanding how to manage your online reputation or “digital footprint” is tricky business, even for those of us who have been using the internet for a long time.

 

Almost everyone at one time or another has been guilty of sharing too much information or posting a photo that later makes us cringe. To complicate matters further, it’s not just our own online actions we need to worry about—what others say and post about us also contributes to our digital footprint.

What Good Teaching Looks Like: Digital Research | Creating Lifelong Learners

What Good Teaching Looks Like: Digital Research | Creating Lifelong Learners | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

As per the Common Core State Standards students must incorporate digital research in their work.  I interpret this to mean that students need a twenty-first century version of book sense.  

 

We used to teach students how to find books in a library, how to determine who the author and illustrator is, and where to find copyright information.  We now need to teach them how to determine keywords, know how to search, be able to determine who created a particular web page and evaluate a page for bias and reliability.

The History Of Learning Tools [Infographic]

The History Of Learning Tools [Infographic] | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

You’re going to want to print out this infographic and, at the very least, share it with your fellow teachers and even students. It’s all about the history of education technology and could be used to educate just about anyone on how far we’ve come in a short period of time. We did a more in-depth look at the history of education technology about a year ago but this infographic is a lot more… fun.

 

Anyway, the below infographic from CTU can be viewed below or downloaded as a PDF here (so you can fire up that color printer). Enjoy the walk down memory lane!

5 Reasons Why Metaphors Can Improve the User Experience

5 Reasons Why Metaphors Can Improve the User Experience | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

"The way we think, what we experience, and what we do every day is very much a matter of metaphor."
- Lakoff and Johnson

 

Metaphors are a great tool to help your users understand abstract or unfamiliar content. By linking abstract information to a concrete concept, it becomes easier for people to understand the information.
