Warily, Schools Watch Students on the Internet - - 2 views

  • Educators find themselves needing to balance students’ free speech rights against the dangers children can get into at school and sometimes with the law because of what they say in posts on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Courts have started to weigh in.
    Now, as students complain, taunt and sometimes cry out for help on social media, educators have more opportunities to monitor students around the clock. And some schools are turning to technology to help them.

Internet effect on the brain - 7 views

  • Noted science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov predicted that one day, we'd "have computer outlets in every home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries where anyone can ask any question and be given answers, be given reference materials, be something you're interested in knowing, from an early age, however silly it might seem to someone else," and with this appliance, be able to truly enjoy learning instead of being forced to learn mundane facts and figures. His insight has proven to be amazingly accurate, as we now live in a world with the Internet, where nearly the entire wealth of human knowledge can live at our fingertips or even in our pockets. Such an amazing feat, of course, doesn't happen without impacting our lives, and scientists have begun to note that the Internet has not only served to fulfill our brains' curiosities, but also rewired them. So what exactly is the Internet doing to our brains? Read on to find out.
  • t's up to us as readers and consumers of information to determine what's relevant and reliable, and with so much practice, our brains are getting better at this task every day.

      This is still a skill that has to be taught.

      I think the way technology is moving fast will make way for one system of governance, one system of education, and control of economy globally as everything is getting links from one country to another. We just have to be careful in controlling its extent.
    Very interesting commentary on how technology effects our physiology. I am struck by the analogy of internet use and addictive bebaviors. There was feature on NPR this morning about how the brains of those that develop addictions differ from those who do not. Perhaps the internet feeds that part of the brain that is prone to addiction. I was also struck by the comment that we rarely give full attention to what we are currently doing.

Internet Search Challenge: Is the Internet Making Us Stupid? - 0 views

  • Some of the deepest reading I've done has been online. For me, investigative searching provides balance for shallow skimming and relentless surfing. Taking a little time to track down the source of information, determine if inaccuracies have been overlooked, becoming familiar with who links to the information--these represent deeper thinking. In fact, I've probably done more deeper thinking online paying attention to clues on which credibility depends than I've done with works in print. Juried or edited works in print tend not to require as much investigation.
    Concerned that reading online is leading to a generation of shallow thinkers unable to focus? Carl Heine makes the case for evaluation of digital information as a critical reading and thinking skill.

      It makes you wonder how schools can cut key boarding and other computer classes from their students education.  I know funding is an issue, but it these skills are necessary for every student.

Funky Youtube: Here's the Most Amazing Mashup Music Video You Are Going to See This Month - 0 views

    I think this is a great example of creativity.
    I spoke with a musi teacher at a conference 2 years ago who did something similar. Each student played and recorded a piece of music on their instrument. They then sent it to their instructor who pieced it together. The band played a piece of music together without ever being in the same room! Very cool.
