8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | Digital footprint | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will add an empathy button

 

"People aren’t looking for an ability to downvote other people’s posts. What they really want is to be able to express empathy."

“People aren’t looking for an ability to downvote other people’s posts. What they really want is to be able to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment, right? And if you are sharing something that is sad, whether it’s something in current events like the refugee crisis that touches you or if a family member passed away, then it might not feel comfortable to Like that post.”

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 30, 2014 10:21 AM

What it doesn't make clear in the article is the need - wherever possible -  to keep personal and business accounts separate. That way you're less likely to get into trouble with your employer for posting something inappropriate, and your business followers will not not have to put up with all of those cat pictures!

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 20, 2014 8:05 AM

"The next big thing is getting smaller and smaller."

 

"The first generation of social media touted "networking", but the next generation, raised in always-on connectivity, will embrace ephemerality and digital tribalism. Those users will abandon the major social networks and migrate to more granular mobile villages with simpler ecosystems."

I think these two statements are pretty much spot-on, and will watch with interest as Facebook (and the 'others') tries to look small while continuing to gobble-up anyone and anything that looks like it might threaten its business model. We don't need one all-consuming platform, but that not how FB shareholders view the world.

 

Interesting times ahead!
