Thanks for the link! I will be using these techniques as I continue to build my German vocabulary!

Great for kids with small imaginations but not sure if they all work. Context is important

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 20, 2014 7:26 PM

In this post Jackie Gerstein states that ethical decision-making is a skill needed today. Technology is advancing at a speed that is often beyond our comprehension and our understanding of how this technology may impact our future may not yet be known. After looking at why it is important to integrate ethical decision-making into the education of young people she shares a resource that "can be used as a source for ethical dilemma discussions in middle school and high school classes."

Some of the ideas suggested include:

* The Right to Privacy versus the Right to Know

* Internet Access as a Human Right

* Neuro-enhancements

She also shares some recent court cases related to online behavior that students might be interested in analyzing.

Teaching ethical decision-making helps students use critical thinking skills, focuses on Bloom's higher order levels, and provides additional skills discussed in the post. As always she provides additional resources.
