20 Basic Rules For Digital Citizenship

20 Basic Rules For Digital Citizenship | Techy Tools | Scoop.it

The definition of digital citizenship has to do with the quality of behaviors that impact the quality of digital content and communities.

To help clarify what that “quality” can look like, knowthenet.org.uk put together the following infographic framed around Dos and Don’ts. While seemingly written for a more general audience than students and educators, the thinking is sound, including “Treat others they way you want to be treated,” “Don’t forget the human behind the screen,” “Listen first, talk later,” and “Use proper grammar.” (Yes, please do.)

Overall it’s a bit basic, but it does take the important step of moving beyond rhetoric to offer concrete tips to realize the idea.

Great new source of free music for your voiceover projects!  YouTube Audio Library brings royalty-free downloadable tunes to public | Slashgear | Techy Tools | Scoop.it

The key to Open Source and Royalty-Free and Public Domain media is collaboration, and the furtherance of humankind by using what our predecessors have made and building up and outward.  YouTube has taken to this call to action with great enthusiasm this week with the YouTube Audio Library, supporting the likes of burgeoning artists and ancient artists alike with a collection of freely-downloadable music they suggest could – and should – be used as backbeats for future YouTube submissions. They’ve made it all so easy, that is to say.

Thanks to YouTube (and Google) you'll now have a growing library of free, legal-to-use background music tracks to use for your media productions. Obviously, the intended purpose is to use them for YouTube videos, but thery don't restrict you from using them in other media.

 

To be honest, we were a bit skeptical of the quality we would find, but a quick scan of the selections yielded several good tracks that would be perfectly suitable to use for voiceover projects. 

While the selection is limited for now, Google has invited musicians to submit their work and made it easy for them to do so, so you can expect the collection to grow very quickly.

Nicole Puffett's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:52 PM

Integrating technology into classrooms can be a very beneficial thing for students. Getting them started with technology at a young age is necessary in our developing world. The way that these technologies are introduced though is very important. Teachers must have a strong understanding of what they are doing, before they try to teach the kids. If they don't do this, then the technology really wont be utalized in a beneficial way to the students.

POLICY FOR THE VISUAL LEARNER 

My school had a list of responsibilities in regards to using iPads in school.  So I set about producing a visual version and recently tweeted it to a Tweep friend. The Tweet was popular and got a number of RTs. So I’ve re-titled the slides for general use and here’s the full PDF version you might want to use in your school.
