Sherry Turkle Says There's a Wrong Way to Flip a Classroom - 0 views

  •  
    "What I'm arguing in the book is that it's not the presence of a laptop in a class that needs to be looked at and needs to be perhaps critiqued, but really the kind of digital culture that we're creating where we're not valuing conversation enough and not valuing relationships enough, and we tend to look at each other as apps in a more transactional way."

    " In Boston, for example, the average cost of renting a two-bedroom apartment is $2,821, which means that you would need to earn $120,900 a year just to afford it"

We 'haven't quite got the formula down' to fight bad behaviour on social media - Arts &... - 0 views

  •  
    ""Why not shame and embarrass others, especially the vulnerable, if there are no negative consequences? If people had a stronger sense that online abuse would be followed by legal or social sanctions, then we surely would have less of it," according to Danielle Keats Citron, law professor at the University of Maryland and author of 2014's Hate Crimes in Cyberspace."

TOS agreements require giving up first born-and users gladly consent | Ars Technica - 0 views

  •  
    "A study out this month made the point all too clear. Most of the 543 university students involved in the analysis didn't bother to read the terms of service before signing up for a fake social networking site called "NameDrop" that the students believed was real. Those who did glossed over important clauses. The terms of service required them to give up their first born, and if they don't yet have one, they get until 2050 to do so. The privacy policy said that their data would be given to the NSA and employers. Of the few participants who read those clauses, they signed up for the service anyway."

    "Social media has swallowed the news - threatening the funding of public-interest reporting and ushering in an era when everyone has their own facts. But the consequences go far beyond journalism"

The same behaviors that spell academic success can backfire at work - 0 views

  •  
    "Girls often don't get those counterbalancing messages. In fact, girls have their good-student behaviors reinforced as feminine norms in the media and the stories they consume. In short, we're in danger of raising girls who strive hard to find the right answer and know how to get good grades-but who don't know how to trust their own voices."

Beware IT crowd: Facebook hubs may influence grades - 0 views

    ""You may not be aware, but this can actually have a massive effect on the performance of the [student] cohort," he said. "If the wrong students set up [the most popular] group, and that's the one everyone goes on, the amount of control they have…is massive." He continued: "If the group is set up by students so that only they can post and nobody else, they can censor discussions."

"Would you say that to me in class?" Online Disinhibition and the Effects on Learning |... - 0 views

  •  
    "Lack of civility in online forums within learning communities is manageable in small, closed online learning communities where an instructor is in control of a class of up to thirty, or even forty students. However, as classes expand, with MOOCs, and other types of learning communities growing, in combination with platforms that allow anonymity (such as Coursera) it will become an issue for educators [and their institutions] involved in online learning at some time or another. Peers within my network have shared their experiences as students and instructors within MOOCs that involve politically charged or contentious subject matters where discussion forums are fraught with offensive, even toxic comments and vitriol discussion.  It is for this reason that I write this post; to provoke thought and discussion in order for educators to be proactive and develop appropriate strategies."

The Hard Truth About Your Online Life - 0 views

  •  
    "From email to social media, there comes a time in everyone's life when we need to sit up and face the truth about our online selves. And the best way to make us all see the light is with graphs. Danish artists Mikael Wulff and Anders Morgenthaler created the series "Truth Facts" on their comedy website Kind of Normal. The humorously honest graphs show the hard truths of everyday life - especially online life."

The Seemingly Harmless Habit Killing Your Productivity - 0 views

  •  
    "The problem is that we get interrupted frequently in the modern workplace. Rituals become habits, and that means we run through the transition cycle every time we stop doing what we're doing. One famous 2007 study found that when people responded to email or instant messaging alerts, it took them 10 to 15 minutes beyond time spent on the interruption to really get back into their original tasks. Those 10 to 15 minutes of headline checking add up."

If you are serious about climate change… stop attending conferences? - 0 views

    "While this is hardly ever said, a sizeable fraction of government research funding goes toward paying expensive travel… because it is a nice perk. Lots of people love getting paid travel. And some of them like to travel to conferences where they will complain about how little is done against climate change…"

Looking for Intimacy in the Age of Facebook - 0 views

  •  
    "More than another literature or creative writing course, these students needed a guide to the twisted subterranean landscape beneath their plugged-in social lives. Texting seemed like the logical place to drop our first pin. Even though it hasn't yet seduced researchers the way Facebook has, texting incites profound cultural unrest. Literally. Recent studies have found that many participants reacted like addicts when separated from their cellphones, while other studies have found that the "sleeping disorders" some high schoolers experience result from cuddling up with text messages all night."

Just the Kindle: Why I've Been Carrying an Ereader Instead of a Tablet - 0 views

    when I carry my tablet I don't do all that much reading. Instead, I check my email, check Facebook, check Twitter, or-perhaps worst of all-play Words with Friends.

Students and scholars in tweet harmony - 0 views

    "Academics are used to altering their tone to match the audience and context, whereas students tend to lack such skills and so will, for all their tech-savvy, sometimes be uncomfortable with more formal forms of contact. In the long term, students need to develop these skills: in the meantime, we can meet them halfway."
