  16. 16. • Instead of trying to mass-produce children who are good at taking tests and memorizing things, schools should emphasize personal development, Robins on said. Not all kids are good at the same things, and the Ken Robinson Sir education system shouldn't pretend they should all turn out the same, he said. Why teaching is 'not like making motorcars’, by John D. Sutter, CNN, March 17, 2010 7:00 a.m. EDT

  24. 24. Jake’s Story… • “Jake told the executive that he never goes directly to a brand like this man’s newspaper or even to blogs he likes. ... he reads a lot of news – far more than I did at his age. But he goes to that news only via the links from Digg, friends’ blogs, and Twitter. He travels all around the internet that is edited by his peers because he trusts them and knows they share his interests. The web of trust is built at eye-level, peer-topeer.” (Jarvis, p.86, my emphasis)
  25. 25. Technological Dystopianism? • Digital media • Taking away abilities to do things they could do before, or do things they shouldn’t do • Ruining people’s ability to make meaning precisely/accurately with language • Social relationships – becoming isolated or meeting up with ‘the wrong kind of people’ • Changing the way that people think – easily distracted – unable to construct/follow complex arguments. • Social identities - are these ‘genuine’, and how much do you have control over? Jones & Hafner Understand ing Digital Literacies 2012, p11

  27. 27. oung-people-guidance-threats-social-media • Over the year, many of the young people I worked with wanted to talk about the events of last summer [Riots]. Would they be tempted to respond to a message such as: "It's all kicking off at PC World – where r u?" I asked them. "It depends on who sent it," was the reply. But who would they turn to for advice if things started going wrong: teachers? Parents? Police? ChildLine? To which the almost unanimous response was: "No way, we'd only be able to talk to our mates, they're the only ones who would understand."

  46. 46. • The Methodist Church social media policy: • Be credible. Be accurate, fair, thorough and transparent. • Be consistent. Encourage constructive criticism and deliberation. • Be cordial, honest and professional at all times. Be responsive. When you gain insight, share it where appropriate. • Be integrated. Wherever possible, align online participation with other communications. • Be a good representative of the Methodist Church. Remember that you are an ambassador for Christ, the Church and your part of it. Disclose your position as
a member or officer of the Church, making it clear when speaking personally. Let Galatians 5:22–26 guide your behaviour (fruits of the spirit). • Be respectful: respect confidentiality. Respect the views of others even where you disagree.
