Teaching empathy in an online world-ethics

Teaching empathy in an online world-ethics | SydneyMum | Scoop.it
Journey School in California puts increased emphasis on teaching computer ethics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can protect a classroom computer from malware and viruses, but how do you prevent students from using a classroom computer to harm someone else?

 

One school thinks it has an answer. Journey School in Aliso Viejo, a city in southern California, puts increased emphasis on teaching computer ethics. This task is made all the more interesting considering the school contains zero internet-ready devices for its sixth through eighth graders.

 

“As the children mature we recognize that, as they get into middle school, we want them to use these tools that we have for the good and for their learning,” Journey School administrator Shaheer Faltas said to The Orange County Register. “We don’t think they need a lot of instruction in how you use Excel or Microsoft Word – what they need to know is what is the appropriate use of these resources.”

Nancy Jones's curator insight, January 12, 2014 12:01 PM

I particularly like the part that concerns  to train for positive assertion versus constant compliance. The compliance to please teachers versus the ownership of learning all  to please parents often provides a conflict for me. 

Jenn Alevy's comment, January 13, 2014 3:44 AM
The only concern I have and I have not read the book, is that her assertions seem to be feeding into the culture of fear and would like to see the stats she refers to when she says youth crime is on the rise. And whose morals is she talking about? People come from a variety of countries and cultures, I hope she does not assume we are all on the same page about 'moral' issues, she may be more conservative while others are more liberal in their beliefs.
Ness Crouch's curator insight, January 14, 2014 9:30 PM

This is an important article. Some teachers find themselves in situations where they are teaching ethical behaviour to children. This is worth a read.

Morality - Ethics

Morality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Morality (from the Latin "manner, character, proper behavior") is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are "good" (or right) and those that are "bad" (or wrong). The philosophy of morality is ethics. A moral code is a system of morality (according to a particular philosophy, religion, culture, etc.)

Actually, I agree with the Latin term and explanation. But what is wrong and right? Can we agree about it? I doubt, especially in these erosion days.
