What is a Global Digital Citizen and Why Does the World Need Them?

What is a Global Digital Citizen and Why Does the World Need Them? | Social Justice News | Scoop.it
“ The Global Digital Citizen understands that we can govern technology for the benefit of both ourselves and others. It is a citizen that views the world as an interconnected community. Additionally, they realize we simultaneously share technological and human experiences regardless of culture, status, or political/religious beliefs. So we define the best assets of the Global Digital Citizen using 5 tenets.”

In this game students start their own company and try to make a profit. Great for business English students.

Dystopic RPG modeled on start-up enterprise (Sims for startups); potentially useful exercise for students in pathway programs to business disciplines as it provides ongoing case analysis potential. Good opportunity for vocabulary acquisition or reinforcement for L2 English students.

How teachers can use Educational Technology successfully

How teachers can use Educational Technology successfully | Social Justice News | Scoop.it
“There is no doubt that advances in information technology have revolutionized how people learn and communicate in almost every aspect of modern life. But, the same can’t be said for education. Modern technology has failed to bring change to our schools because the education governance establishment isolates them from the disruptions technology has created on other organizations and systems. Schools are highly regulated than any other agencies by the government. The government instructs where the students will study, what will they learn, and who will be their teachers. The government also discourages innovations in the educational system.To overcome these bumps, we must urge teachers, educators, private tutors alike, that technology will empower them and help their students learn better. Here are five strategies to help teachers adopt and use educational technology successfully:”

“ Media and Information Literacy: Reinforcing Human Rights, Countering Radicalization and Extremism - Free ebook download as PDF File (.pdf), Text File (.txt) or read book online for free. MIL is a strong tool, cutting across educational, cultural and social contexts. It can help overcome disinformation, stereotypes and intolerance conveyed through some media and in online spaces. Here, stimulating critical empathy is one of the vital components and there are many stakeholders that have a role to play in this dimen- sion of MIL. Furthermore, MIL empowers people to be curious, to search, to critically eval- uate, to use and to contribute information and media content wisely. MIL calls for competence in knowing one’s rights online; combating online hate speech and cyberbullying; and understanding the ethical issues surrounding access and use of Information. In this way, MIL makes it possible for people to engage with media and ICTs to promote equality, free expression, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, and peace.”

Developing digital literacy in learners | eWorks | Social Justice News | Scoop.it
“ “Digital literacy involves finding, using and disseminating information in a digital world” (Deakin University, 2016). Digital literacy is also a transversal skill, which means that by having good digital literacy, a person’s ability to learn and improve other skills increases through the use of technology. In the next 5-10 years, a number of routine jobs will be taken over by automation and artificial intelligence (AI) (ACS, 2016). This automation and AI will also be ingrained in workplaces, homes and everything we do, due to the increased productivity and lifestyle gains that these technologies provide. In order to remain current in the workplace, and to be able to fully function in society, the need for good digital literacy has never been greater.”

67 Startups to Make Your Home Smarter

67 Startups to Make Your Home Smarter | Social Justice News | Scoop.it

Appliances & Audio Devices: These include household products that function as a conventional appliance or device, yet offer advantages through connectivity, such as Sectorqube‘s MAID Oven and Sonos‘ smart home speakers. Sonos is the most well-funded smart home startup in terms of equity financing.

Device Controllers: While most startups produce individual smart home products, these companies produce the devices controlling them. Examples are Peel‘s universal remote and Ivee‘s personal voice assistant, advertised as “Siri for the home.” Both of these companies have received VC funding from Lightspeed Venture Partners and Foundry Group. Most of these products are able to control smart home products from other companies such as Philips and Nest.

Energy & Utilities: These are companies that utilize sensors, monitoring tech, and data to conserve water and energy. Ecobee and Rachio, for instance, develop products that monitor and control AC and water sprinkler systems respectively, to help make consumption more efficient. Interestingly, several startups in this category have received funding from corporations and corporate venture capital firms, such as Carrier Corporation, which backed Ecobee, and Amazon’s Alexa Fund, which backed Rachio.

Gardening: These companies focus on producing smart products for watering and monitoring household yards, gardens, and plants. This is one of the smaller categories in terms of number of companies. The most well-funded startup in this category is Edyn.

General Smart Home Solutions: Instead of producing a single smart gadget, these companies build or distribute multi-device systems that automate several parts of your home, such as ecoVent‘s custom vent/sensor system or Vivint‘s third-party device bundles.

Health & Wellness: These are products that assist home occupants in maintaining their health and lifestyle, such as MedMinder Systems‘ smart medicine containers and Beddit‘s under-the-bed health sensor. A notable deal in this category is Hello‘s $40M Series A round last year, which made it the most well-funded smart home startup in health & wellness.

Home Robots: This category is home to companies that produce robots specifically for maintenance and assistance in a home environment. These include robotic assistant Jibo and home cleaning robot Neato.

Lighting: Taking cues from products such as the Philips Hue, companies like Sequioa Capital-backed LIFX are coming up with their own app-controlled lightbulbs. Others such as Switchmate are going beyond the bulb and building app-controllable light switches.

Pet/Baby Monitors: These companies focus on producing video monitors and sensors to monitor pets and babies through the comfort of a smartphone. Most startups in this space, such as Y Combinator alumni Lully and Petcube, are young and still in their early stages of funding.

Safety & Security: These companies utilize the internet and home automation technologies to help protect you and your home with monitors, internet-enabled locks, smart smoke detectors, and more. This is one of the larger and more well-funded categories, as companies in this space include Ring, Simplisafe, August Home, and Canary.

Miscellaneous: Startups in this category have particularly unique offerings, such as Electric Objects‘ dynamic art display, Kamarq‘s sound table, and Notion‘s universal sensor.
