The Case for Digital Citizenship in Schools

The Case for Digital Citizenship in Schools | Using Web 2.0 Tools in Instruction | Scoop.it

Cell phones and the Internet are powerful vehicles. Yet parents give kids cell phones like they are the latest gadget, ignoring what can happen if a child makes a childish mistake. They can be scarred for life.

14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad | educational technology for teachers | Using Web 2.0 Tools in Instruction | Scoop.it

iPads are neat little devices that can pretty much do it all: play music, support interactive content, reshape how we think of textbooks, produce high-quality videos, and even take a step back and function as a good old-fashioned typewriter.

I have a first edition iPad.  It took me awhile to realize that the only way I could get a file onto the iPad was to get the original file into the cloud from another computer. I wish I had read this article when I first got my machine!

Ask Great Questions: Leadership Skills Of Socrates

Ask Great Questions: Leadership Skills Of Socrates | Using Web 2.0 Tools in Instruction | Scoop.it

Socrates, this ancient philosopher holds the key to an essential leadership skill: asking great questions. The challenge is that too few leaders, managers and employees ask great questions. This is a big problem. Cultures that embrace a culture of questioning thrive and those that fear it either fail or are doomed to mediocrity.

In order to become great Leaders one should always ask questions if something is not clear. Like the saying goes the only dumb question is the one not asked.

"We live in a fast-paced, hyper-connected, information and knowledge-based, global economy, where things change minute-to-minute and the skills you need to have change just as fast. More importantly, you need to be able to self-teach new skills and tools on the fly, and maybe even develop your own innovative ways to use new technology as it arrives on the scene. In short, in order to get hired, keep your job, advance in your career, and be shown the money, you are going to need a very specific set of soft skills that you may not be obtaining in your higher education classes."
