Curriculum Leadership Journal | Applying social media in schools

Curriculum Leadership Journal | Applying social media in schools | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it
Social media in the classroom can be used to cater to students' diverse needs, and also to introduce students to the labour market they will encounter in their future lives. Social media can improve communications between staff and parents, and create online spaces for use by particular sections of the school community. Teachers can also use the social media in many ways for their own professional development. Within a school's online space students can be shielded from unwanted aspects of the social media, but it is also important that both students and staff know how to operate safely on their own in the wider web environment.

How Much Information Do We Give Away Every Day Online?

How Much Information Do We Give Away Every Day Online? | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it

We're online all the time... or so it seems. We all search to our heart's content. We make purchases online, do our banking online, many of us for all intents and purposes live... online...

Why Content Curation Should Be at the Heart of Every Social Experience | ClickZ | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it
Web 2.0 ushered in a new world of social media and web applications that facilitate participatory information sharing and collaboration. What followed was a myriad of web-based tools, applications, and platforms, most famously Facebook and Twitter, that allowed people to easily update, share, and access news and information in real time.

The connections within our social graph allow both brands and consumers the opportunity to leverage on the relationships between individuals to offer a richer online experience.
