Writing Centers, Ethics, and Excessive Research - 1 views

    I am interested in finding information about writing centers, in particular online writing centers, because that will likely be my area of focus if I end up doing a doctorate program. This particular website is a great compilation of research. It's not a peer-reviewed journal, but it does reference lots of articles to look up later. One of the topics I was most interested in here is students' attitudes and practices regarding research and citation of said research.

  • . In fact we encourage that kind of exploration. It is how children explore and gain information about the world around them.

  • known that at that age, play and learning are indistinguishable. The premise of A New Culture of Learning is grounded in the idea that we are now living in a world of constant change and flux, which means that more often than not, we are faced with the same problem that vexes children. How do I make sense of this strange, changing, amazing world? By returning to play as a modality of learning, we can see how a world in constant flux is no longer a challenge or hurdle to overcome; it becomes a limitless resource to engage, stimulate, and cultivate the imagination. Our argument brings to the fore the old aphorism "imagination is more important than knowledge." In a networked world, information is always available and getting easier and easier to access. Imagination, what you actually do with that information, is the new challenge

Above all, it says that kids will have to figure out how to navigate the digital world beyond school on their own and puzzle through issues of cyber safety, technological responsibility, and digital citizenship without the help of the educational system.
  • It says that if we don't understand that schools are exactly the place for kids to learn how to use technology not only effectively and creatively but also responsibly and wisely, then heaven help us all.

Users of the world, unite! The challenges and opportunities of Social Media - 0 views

    this article intends to provide some clarification on social media. We begin by describing the concept of Social Media, and discuss how it differs from related concepts such as Web 2.0 and User Generated Content. Based on this definition, we then provide a classification of Social Media which groups applications currently subsumed under the generalized term into more specific categories by characteristic: collaborative projects, blogs, content communities, social networking sites, virtual game worlds, and virtual social worlds. Finally, we present 10 pieces of advice for companies which decide to utilize Social Media.
