ABC News: Could MySpace Be Your Kid's Social Key? - 0 views

  • They're very self-motivated.
    • Vicki Davis
       
      Quite the opposite of what many are saying -- I agree with this.
  • This world encourages us to multitask. I think it encourages kids to be much less patient. More terse.
  • This generation spends time at home — connected. Kids have to be social. It's all part of the preteen and teen years and young adult years

  • Because they have a combination of people they know face-to-face in the real world and people they don't, (those of the Net generation) get a lot of chances to bounce ideas and to test out things on a social network that they probably wouldn't do face-to-face.
    • Vicki Davis
       
      And we need to make networks so they can bounce of ideas related to a novel or something they are learning in school too.
  • Larry Rosen, professor of psychology at California State University-Dominguez Hills, has long studied "the Net generation," the first to have grown up with the Internet, not to mention cellphones. In Me, MySpace and I: Parenting the Net Generation (Palgrave Macmillan), he helps parents understand social networks. His advice: Talk to your kids, learn the technology and don't panic. USA TODAY's Janet Kornblum spoke with the author.

    This is an interesting article that presents some interesting commentary on students today. It is very brief but makes some excellent points.
  •  
    Alice shared this earlier, but I went back and added annotations AND the tagging standard -- this will show up in the links and make this article rise to the top as we discuss it.

    This is the "site community" for my blog -- I'm learning a lot about what people have marked and the annotations feature is really cool. If you blog or have a website, you should look at the automatically created site community -- also check it out for those sites you really enjoy reading -- you may turn up some of their great old posts that you've not read!
  •  
    This is a sample of the "site community" that is created around every website-- all bloggers should take a look at the site community created around their own site. Cool!

    This is a wiki we have used to help our teachers gain a basic understanding of how to use diigo and social bookmarking.  It does not contain anything about the new diigo 3.  We'll have to do some updating!

      I am trying this out with our college juniors/seniors who are either looking for internships or permanent jobs. Normally, registration is restricted to oNLY .edu email addresses, BUT I might be able to get permission for K-12 educators to try it out IF they don't happen to have .edu addresses.

  • Equipment: 1 Apple MacBook Pro 1 Canon Elura DV Camera 1 Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 (webcam) Software: Ustream (web-based) CamTwist
  • Ustream Set-up: After clicking on “Broadcast Now”, I made the following adjustments to the controls: Video Source = CamTwist (note: CamTwist had to be already running in order to do this.) Audio source = Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 (The audio from the webcam sounded better than the audio from the built-in microphone. The “built-in audio input” didn’t seem to work for my configuration even though I did have a nice mic plugged into the input on my computer ) I adjust the audio and video quality as needed, and under “advanced” features I increased the frame-rate for the video since I was connected via ethernet cable (not recommended if connected wirelessly.)

Group Tag Dictionary - 1 views

  •  
    This is the current tag dictionary -- we really only get 17 that show up and I had to truncate the names -- but if you join the group and send pages to the group when you bookmark these tags will come up.
  •  
    This is the page where I set up the dictionary for educators -- it may or may not let non administrators see it, however, I wanted to TRY to share it with the group.
