  3. 3. A digital native is a person for whom digital technologies already existed when they were born, and hence has grown up with digital technology such as computers, the Internet, mobile phones and MP3s.

  5. 5. Digital Dossier Video Your dossier is made up of all the digital tracks you leave behind … On a daily basis, digital natives are consistently leaving information about themselves in secure or non-secure databases… have you ever considered the amount of information being collected about you, or the extent to which this information spreads?

  6. 6. Self-Directed Learning (SDL) is any increase in knowledge, skill or performance pursued by any individual for personal reasons employing any means, in any place at any time at any age. Image URL:
  7. 7. Lifelong learning means that individuals can have access to and are willing to participate in ongoing, not recurrent, education. This "learning to learn" philosophy can begin with toddlers and it can extend throughout a person's life with branches that can extend into various experiences and careers.
  8. 8. At no time in history has the ability to locate, organize, evaluate, manage and use information been more critical for today's learners. These skills, collectively referred to as information literacy , lay the groundwork for success in every phase of a student's life both in and out of school. Information Literacy
  9. 9. Transliteracy … an umbrella term for all literacies, a possible way to bring an overarching, sensible and easily-communicated shared goal to all of the different literacies out there. If you think about it, all of the literacies above, as well as more basic skills like reading, writing, critical thinking, and math and science literacy, even what is sometimes called “street smarts,” are all about, at their core, using information to solve a problem .

  12. 12. Nine Elements of Digital Citizenship
  13. 13. Digital Access… full electronic participation in society. All people should have fair access to technology no matter who they are… To become productive citizens, we need to be committed to equal digital access.

Users need to understand that stealing or causing damage to other people’s work, identity, or property online is a crime. Hacking into others information, downloading illegal music, plagiarizing, creating destructive worms, viruses or creating Trojan Horses, sending spam, or stealing anyone’s identify or property is unethical.
  15. 15. Digital Rights & Responsibilities… those freedoms extended to everyone in a digital world. Just as in the American Constitution where there is a Bill of Rights, there is a basic set of rights extended to every digital citizen. Digital citizens have the right to privacy, free speech, etc.
  16. 16. Digital Health & Wellness… physical and psychological well-being in a digital technology world. Eye safety, repetitive stress syndrome, and sound ergonomic practices are issues that need to be addressed in a new technological world. Beyond the physical issues are those of the psychological issues that are becoming more prevalent such as Internet addiction. Users need to be taught that there inherent dangers of technology.
  17. 17. Digital Security… electronic precautions to guarantee safety. In any society, there are individuals who steal, deface, or disrupt other people. The same must be true for the digital security. We need to have virus protection, backups of data, and surge control of our equipment. As responsible citizens, we must protect our information from outside forces that might cause disruption or harm.
  18. 18. Digital Etiquette… electronic standards of conduct or procedure. … most pressing problems when dealing with Digital Citizenship. Often rules and regulations are created or the technology is simply banned to stop inappropriate use. We must teach everyone to become responsible digital citizens. /

They are hyper-communicators and must "power down" just to go to school. / /
