Digital Citizenship for Middle and High School - Lessons by Sandy - 1 views

  •  
    "Several option for middle school posters.  I made both a chalkboard and white board version.  Both sets have a main poster (with all 6 reminders), individual posters of each of the 6 reminders, and double sided bookmarks that you can send home with students.  I also created a black and white version of everything in case you don't want to waste your color ink and would rather have your kids color them instead."

    "A good fact-checking site uses neutral wording, provides unbiased sources to support its claims and reliable links, says Frank Baker, author of Media Literacy in the K-12 Classroom and creator of the Media Literacy Clearinghouse.

Note Taking With Technology | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    "Today's students require strategies that support their acquisition of knowledge, allow them to save their notes across devices, permit them to search through vast quantities of information, and share their learning with the rest of their community. Before blaming a device-either the pen or the laptop-we need to identify what is best for individual students by considering what I call the four S's of note taking. Does the system students are using: 1. adequately support the students' learning needs? 2. allow students to save their notes to multiple locations? 3. let students search for salient points? 4. permit students to share with peers and teachers?"

Do students lose depth in digital reading? - The Tech Edvocate - 0 views

  •  
    An interesting article comparing the ways in which we read in print and onscreen. The author discusses the results he gathered between 2013 and 201. He obtained data from 429 university students drawn from five countries (the U.S., Japan, Germany, Slovenia and India).

    The students in my study reported that print was aesthetically more enjoyable, saying things such as "I like the smell of paper" or that reading in print is "real reading." What's more, print gave them a sense of where they were in the book - they could "see" and "feel" where they were in the text.

    The graphic is titled the Inquiry Process and offers a visual representation (a map) of the inquiry journey together.
    "At its essence, inquiry takes learners on personalized learning pathways that are often unique in their details as well as when they meet particular benchmarks phases.  This map allows learners to visualize where we will go and understand that although our individual journeys may be unique, we are all in a similar landscape that provides connections across topics and questions in the processes we all follow."
