Susan's insight:

Have your students be creative by listening to different genres of music and writing a story that fits the tone.  These activities look like they could really reach students in a very fun and innovative way.  I esp. think they would love writing a story to go with the Pink Panther music!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 17, 2014 1:27 PM

Even Marc Prensky is rethinking the use of the nomenclature of digital native and digital immigrants. The pace of technological change is such that it might not be possible to categorize this way. The key becomes learning skills that help us learn new skills regarding technology.

 

There is a growing body of research that agrees with the idea that many students do not come with transferable skills for technology. They know how to use a particular social medium or media, but not much else and it is usually for entertainment purposes.

Tom Whitby, in one of his recent posts, he wrote “If we are educating our children to live and thrive in their world, we cannot limit them to what we were limited to in our world. As things change and evolve, so must education. As educators we have a professional obligation to change as well. We must retain a sense of relevance and that requires effort. Relevance does not come to us as we sleep in the night. Educators need to employ the very skills they are passing along to their students. They need to: curate, collaborate, communicate, critically think, and create

Some great information here about keeping our students safe.  Great tips for talking openly in the classroom about the hazards of cyberspace.  Sometimes  teachers assume that someone else has educated the students with regards to digital citizenship and often the information slips between the cracks and they have never actually been formally talked to about such an important issue.  Make sure someone in your school is covering it!
