Week 2: Social Media:Society & Citizenship
This course is designed to enable students to make safe and legal use of the Internet by identifying best practices, tools and methods that also respects free expression. It will develop the critical thinking skills necessary to understand the challenges, risks and opportunities regarding current computer-mediated communication technologies. Topics will include the rights and responsibilities of the digital citizen, Internet safety, social -networking, privacy, and creative content creation. Legal, technical, psychological, and social dynamics will be addressed with an emphasis on practical application. We will first build a foundation by looking at the technical aspects of social media by exploring the tools and skills necessary to enhance students’ online potential by building a culture of responsible online behavior. The second half of the course will focus on the more complex dynamics of collaboration, privacy, content creation and economic and political societal participation.

    • 20. The Curated Experience, Convergent Devices & Net Neutrality How convergent devices overthrew civilization!How convergent devices overthrew civilization!
    • 21. “Perhaps the most pernicious proposition of the “everything must be open” crusade is the notion that curation is bad and anti-freedom. Soldiers of this crusade confuse freedom with competition. Our museums are not football- field sized warehouses where art objects are indiscriminately dumped and our magazines and blogs are not amorphous containers of randomly selected articles. Our classrooms, restaurants, hospitals and indeed all our civilized institutions are firmly reliant on curation of one kind or another. The goal should be for curators to compete, not for curation to be declared illegal and unholy by the “open” zealots.” ~ Kontra Apple, unlike Android, curates it software offerings. For instance, there are no porn apps at the Apple store. Is this a good or bad thing?
    • 22. WhoWho’s behind the curtain?’s behind the curtain? “Just as Adobe is desperately trying to yell at the world, “Don’t buy into Apple’s walled garden, get locked into our own proprietary Flash,” so is Google trying to misdirect consumers’ attention from its own monopolistic sins to Apple’s mobile platform where 100 million users voted with their own money to enjoy 200,000 apps. The evil man behind the curtain in this scenario is not Apple’s curation, it’s the frightening prospect of Google getting cut off from search and ad revenue derived from its naked domination of the search box on top of your web browser. That, unfortunately, doesn’t sound like an appealing public cry, hence the “Curated Computing” misdirection whining.”
    • 23. Why it matters!Why it matters! Most of today’s educational content comes in textbooks, which Bryan Polivka likens to CDs in “Why the iPad really could change everything.” He asks us to wonder about the textbook “single” and imagines a future in which we can create a learning “playlist” for a course that mixes tracks from Macmillan, Pearson and others. The future suggests that it won’t stop there and digital “papers” and assignments will be elaborations (riffs?) on those textbook singles and the best ones will be added to the library from which future students construct their playlists. Do you like that the total cost of textbooks for this course was FREE?
    • 24. Is there danger with “FREE”? Watch – Aral Balkan “Free Is A Lie”

    • 33. “Youth exhibit agency and an expertise that  often exceeds that of their elders, resulting in  intergenerational struggle over authority and control over learning and literacy.”
    • 34. “ Peer-based learning relies on a context of reciprocity, in which  kids feel they have a stake in self-expression as well as a stake  in evaluating and giving feedback to one another.”
