5 Reasons You Should Be Teaching Digital Citizenship

 

 

Students buzzed about the latest uproar on Instagram. Anonymous sources had posted a “questionable”–and NSFW–list for multiple public schools in our city on Instagram, leading to distraught girls, viral Twitter reactions, and an investigation [http://insiderlouisville.com/news/2014/01/16/jcps-officials-investigating-posting-inappropriate-photos-students-instagram/ ].

This type of cyberbullying and reckless use of digital communication is rampant among teens, but this recent episode was only unusually due to its elevated publicity.

When curation creates stories .......

Curation as a new form of journalism.... hmmm, interesting! This does however raise questions about the authenticity of the information being disseminated, isn't it? Are we moving away from first-hand reports? How accurate is the information one curates? Why does one really curate? Lack of creativity??? Lack of first-hand info? Curation, yes, it's an interesting concept, but it does raise a lot of questions. Let's not accept it just as it is....

Lengthy but worth a read - makes you think about the future of journalism but the exciting prospect of hearing currently unknown and new voices.
