    Bling yer Blog

    For my website, some changes that I made were firs to the theme. I liked the design and layout of my new page better than my old page. I also created a Nousion Student individual page so that all of my work would be posted in there. I want to create more pages I am just trying to decide the direction of my site at this point. Am I creating this for personal or professional reasons? Do I want to gear it towards my class or towards myself… I need to decide.

    Back to the Future

    Digital Citizenship  The more I explore about digital citizenship the more I realize that it is a very hard topic to define. As technology is always changing and evolving, the definition of digital citizenship has to change and evolve with the time. I think digital citizenship encompasses all spaces of the digital world. It includes everything from basic skills used by the individual to more complex skills as understanding web literacy. Socially we have constructed ideas about what is an appropriate or inappropriate way to use the web. The hardest part really is the fact that what is acceptable is completely dependent upon the individuals and what they believe to be appropriate or inappropriate in…

    Web Literac(y)(ies)

    Digital Skills: “the what and how” -Bali Digital Literacy: “focuses on the why, when, who and for whom” – Bali Web Literacy: concrete strategies and tactics for tracing claims to sources and for analyzing the nature and reliability of those sources” – Caulfield When it comes to digital skills, digital literacy, and web literacy each of these terms demonstrates a progression of knowledge the student acquires as they develop as digital citizens. Digital skills are the foundational skills of using computers and digital devices. As students begin to begin to comfortably use the devices, they build on that knowledge as they become digitally literate. Being able to search and access information…

    Digital Literacies Reflection

    WOW!! After reading this article and chapters it really changed my ideas about what it means to be digitally literate. I thought Maha Bali did a really great job of identifying the differences between digital literacy and digital skills. As technology continues to evolve and become more integrated into our lives I think that we need to be teaching more than digital skills. I am interested in finding out what my districts technology educational framework is and how it is integrated starting from kindergarten to 8th grade. I think this would really inform my practice teaching at the high school level. I made my first infographic to organize my excerpts…

    Domain of One’s Own Reflection

    As I read Gardner Campbell’s “A Personal Cyberinfrastructure” I kept thinking about my freshmen year of high school when myspace was created (or I guess when Kodiak finally caught up to the rest of the world) and how different my experience on myspace was to how it is on Facebook. When I was using myspace I can’t even tell you how many hours I use to spend writing code to determine what my background color was going to be, font, size, how to make an image float as people scrolled, added music, wrote blogs and created a website that was a living breathing reflection of myself even my top 8…

    Exploring Digital Citizenship

    Theories  Picture From Personal Learning Transforming Learning for all Learners Theories I struggled to identify what part of theories associated with digital citizenship I was going to research. My research led me to think of this portion of the assignment in relation to theories of learning when I found the Pearson’s 3 theories why digital learning access is good for students. The three theories outlined by Pearson are: Behaviorist, Social Cognitive Theory and Information Processing Theory. The specific part of behaviorism that resonated with me is the application of operant conditioning and using it to teach digital citizenship. Addressing digital citizenship in schools allows educators the opportunity to each student expected…

    Where am I now?

    Digital Citizenship Citizenship is the idea of being a part of a specific country. Digital citizenship is being a part of the digital world and includes all of the different digital uses and avenues the person is a part of. To correctly use the internet or be a part of the digital world we as users follow a social contract similar to what we already follow for our daily interactions. As our entire lives move towards streaming online, there isn’t a lot of separation between the human self and the digital self. How we use the computer, what we post, what we share, what we say all impacts how we are…
