"An Instagram Account You Have to Check Out: Carl Hooker shared this in one of our most recent meetings. The Compliment Creations Instagram account shares compliment prompts that are perfect to spark gratitude. Two of my fave prompts are: "You Have Shown ____ by _____ and it Has Inspired Me to____" and "I'm Proud Of You For______. It Never Ceases to Amaze Me How _____ ."

Good summary written for teens on what fake news and tips for spotting it.  (The  use of "WTF" in the second paragraph means I can't share it with my middle schoolers, alas.)

GwynethJones's insight:

Judicious video utilization strategies are great!

 

One of the BEST I learned from PBS Teacher Camp back in the 90's was to put a clear plastic over the TV and mark it up. You can do the same with an LCD Projector & a screen.

 

Let kids get up out of their chair and come up and circle, point to, add speech bubbles, etc. over a paused video. PREDICT. Speculate. Explain.

Social media linked to rise in mental health disorders in teens, survey finds

Social media linked to rise in mental health disorders in teens, survey finds | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
National survey finds that American teens are experiencing more mental health issues; lack of sleep and the rise of digital media may be why, experts say.
GwynethJones's insight:

TL;DR -----> FOMO + Lack of Sleep = anxiety & depression

 

Learning what not to put out and what not to put into Social Media. Limiting Social Media until High School (or at least age 13 which is the law) might be the answer.

New AI fake text generator may be too dangerous to release, say creators | Technology | The Guardian

New AI fake text generator may be too dangerous to release, say creators | Technology | The Guardian | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
The creators of a revolutionary AI system that can write news stories and works of fiction – dubbed “deepfakes for text” – have taken the unusual step of not releasing their research publicly, for fear of potential misuse.

OpenAI, an nonprofit research company backed by Elon Musk, Reid Hoffman, Sam Altman, and others, says its new AI model, called GPT2 is so good and the risk of malicious use so high that it is breaking from its normal practice of releasing the full research to the public in order to allow more time to discuss the ramifications of the technological breakthrough.
