    So no denying it, the world is shifting to the digital space, consuming all kind of information through digital means; mobile phones, laptops or desktops. While there are the ones who've grown up with smartphones and internet are very well embracing the new brave world of versatility and speed. Before we totally grab on the benefits of digital Marketing for our business growth, you can't ignore the fact that Public Relations is equally important for any business or organisation effectiveness. The mix of traditional PR with content marketing on different social media platforms and search has led to different fold of opportunities for business growth. INTERGRATING digital MARKETING WITH PR Communication marketing agencies are all around the world willing to work for you but an effective integration can only happen if some of the key points are kept in mind: Clarity on business objective Comprehend the impact and process of the business before initiating campaigns WHY digital MARKETING We all are acknowledged to the fact that digital marketing of a business or product can easily transmit for the scanty fraction value/cost of the print or TV ad. Also, the reach can be easily tracked and monitored as nowadays companies rely on reviews and feedback more than any celebrity endorsement. Hence, for every business, it's an effective way for a brilliant brand growth.

Digital Natives/Digital Dossiers [video] - 0 views

  •  
    Your digital dossier is made up of all the digital tracks you leave behind - from your photos on Flickr, to the Facebook messages you send, to all the data your credit card company collects about your transactions. On a daily basis, digital natives are consistently leaving information about themselves in secure or non-secure databases. You probably do this without a second thought in you day-to-day life - but have you ever considered the amount of information being collected about you, or the extent to which this information spreads?\nIn this video, created by Kanupriya Tewari, we explore this issue from the perspective of a child born today - Andy - and the timeline of all the digital files he accumulates in a life span.

Teaching Kids to Manage their Digital Footprint - 2 views

  •  
    Teaching kids to manage their Digital Footprint really starts with the adults. Teachers can't teach this effectively if they, themselves have not managed their own Digital footprint. It is also important not to confuse managing a Digital footprint with being hidden or private. Branding our identities has become more and more important in the Digital age and if students and teachers aren't actively managing their Digital footprint, then who is?

Digital Information Fluency Model - 4 views

  •  
    Digital Information Fluency (DIF) is the ability to find, evaluate and use Digital information effectively, efficiently and ethically. DIF involves knowing how Digital information is different from print information; having the skills to use specialized tools for finding Digital information; and developing the dispositions needed in the Digital information environment. As teachers and librarians develop these skills and teach them to students, students will become better equipped to achieve their information needs.

How I Learned to Type - 0 views

  •  
    "How I Learned to Type," was created by Diana Kimball and Sarah Zhang of the Digital Natives team. It takes a glance into how people of different ages learned one of the first skills every Digital inhabitant needs - typing. Do you "peck" with two fingers, type in multiple languages at once, or have a typing teacher with a wooden leg? The people in "How I Learned to Type" do all this and more. Digital technology has become so ingrained in our lives that for Digital natives, learning to type has become a ubiquitous experience, as memorable, say, as learning to read or ride a bike.

  •  
    This documents students using Google Lively to teach other students about digital citizenship
  •  
    For our project, we chose to create a virtual room, called Digiteen World, on Google Lively. Our main objective of this project is to get people more aware about Digital Citizenship. We will be allowing kids from our school to get on Lively, and react in the virtual world. We have created nine superheroes. Each superhero has a lesson to teach abut the nine aspects of Digital Citizenship. By teaching the lessons in a virtual room, the kids get to have a great time and still learn very important lessons. The goal of this project is to educate people on how to act online. In allowing kids to be a part of this project, we hope that they will learn how to be good Digital citizens.

    A majority of teenagers who go online maintain one or more profiles at social networking Web sites. Most teens restrict access to to their profiles, but "friends" who access the profiles routinely number in the hundreds. Mary Madden, a senior researcher with the Pew Internet and American Life Project, tells Robert Siegel that society will likely become more accepting of the "digital footprints" young people leave online. Good discussion points in here for a digital citizenship class.

Understanding Digital Citizenship - 4 views

  • it seems that digital citizenship is about using technology appropriately, and not misusing or abusing technology.
  • The item I am most interested in is the “digital rights and responsibilities”. Up until now, most of what I have seen related to digital citizenship relates only to safety, literacy and etiquette and the strategies we use in teaching these to children.
  • A fully literate citizen is at once critically self-reflexive and critically reflexive of his/her collective and position within it.
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • I can say that digital citizenship can be extended to include; 1) A responsibility to critical interpret our place in the collective, especially in terms of power, authority, influence and position, and 2) An obligation toward bettering our (digital) communities through critical, ethical and moral decision-making.

    Brilliant and meaty post from Alex Couros about what "digital citizenship" encompasses and really means for pedagogy.

Digital Underground Storytelling For Youth - 0 views

  •  
    Student -created videos telling powerful stories!! D.U.S.T.Y. is an afterschool program for middle and high school students in Oakland, CA. DUSTY students work on computers to create their own Digital Stories, as well at to generate rap and hip hop "beats and rhymes." Throughout the creative process, students learn to master programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, iMovie, and Fruity Loops with the help of skilled instructors. At the end of each semester, the students' creative masterpieces, including Digital stories, raps, beats, and performances are showcased in some sort of final event at The Parkway Theatre, The Metro, and other local venues.

    In this information technology age, children and youth in West and East Oakland face the additional disadvantage of a digital divide, which separates ethnicities, socio-economic classes, genders, and ages. Youth from low-income communities rarely have access to cutting edge communication technologies or, just as importantly, to empowering uses of them. A comparison between the number of computers per Oakland school with the schools' statewide academic performance ranking, or API, revealed that some schools with high numbers of computers have very low API's. This discrepancy suggests that simply having technology is not enough; rather, to improve student academic outcomes, technology must be meaningfully used.

The Anthropology of Digital Natives Webcast (Library of Congress) - 0 views

  •  
    Young people today born into a digital world are experiencing a far different environment of information-gathering and access to knowledge than a generation ago. Who are these "digital natives" and what are they thinking? How are they using the technology, and are IT experts adequately responding to them? These questions will be addressed in a new Library of Congress series titled "digital Natives." The four-lecture series will examine the generation that has been raised with the computer as a natural part of their lives, with emphasis on the young people currently in schools and colleges today. The series will seek to understand the practices and culture of these digital natives, the cultural implications of the phenomenon and the implications for education -- schools, universities and libraries.

Digital Literacy: Skills for the 21st Century - 3 views

  •  
    Teachers wishing to foster digital literacy in their classrooms and states wishing to demonstrate it in their students face a common challenge: no comprehensive, established approach exists to guide the teaching, learning, and assessment of specific digital literacy skills. To begin addressing this challenge, we have developed this website, which was part of a two-year project funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies. The site articulates the skills comprising digital literacy with the goal of helping schools and districts implement a new approach to digital literacy teaching.

ISTE | NETS for Teachers 2008 - 0 views

  •  
    In June 2008, the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) released an update to their technology standards for teachers. The revised National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) for Teachers mark a significant overhaul of the group's original teacher technology standards, which ISTE introduced in 2000. The new ISTE teacher standards begin with the assumption that every teacher recognizes the importance of technology and how it can transform teaching and learning. The revised framework focuses on what teachers should know to help students become productive digital learners and citizens. "NETS for Teachers, Second Edition" includes five categories, each with its own set of performance indicators:
    1.Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity
    2. Design and develop digital-age learning experiences and assessments
    3.Model digital-age work and learning
    4. Promote and model digital citizenship and responsibility
    5. Engage in professional growth and leadership.
