Online, PLN, Twitter, Web 2.0
PLN, Twitter, web2.0
This date is significant due to the following tweet:
Yes… Oprah is on Twitter and if you are not…. in the tech world, you are considered LAME or just late in the game, son. In the education world, many teachers still have issues in embracing Web2.0 technologies due to the pressures of self-conduct. If we cannot behave online with a unknown audience of hundrends or even thousands, how is it that we are expected to act behind closed doors with 70+ minds to mold on a daily basis? So get on board, act like you have some couth and build your personal learning network.

Digital Citizens, Teaching, Technology
digitalalien, digitalnative, digitalsavage, EdTech, marcpernsky, pernsky, students, Technology
We have Mr. Marc Pernsky to thank for the term digital natives to define the current generation saturated by technology. However there are two types of students that we commonly overlook in the realm of digital citizenry.
Unfortunately there are some children that do not have any access to technology such as computers outside of school, so are they really apt to be label as true natives? This eludes to believe that a digital savage would address those included with technology generation but excluded by outside factors. This blog post from Full Circle Assosiates captures the essence of term digital savage. I posted info about the digital alien before, but the difference between the two would definately be the exposure and dexterity of wielding technologies. Is technology differentiation required to meet the needs for these students?

BlackBerry, iphone, Music
bb, BlackBerry, iphone, ipod-touch, touch, tpain
Okay… iPhone you win… My BB is certified to be no fun compared to the feature of this autotune app. I am not hating, but…
This app is a great novelty at first, but we don’t need a plethora of T-pain wannabes out here! Hey Jay-Z, I think that this app definetly twists the knife in the death of autotune. (BTW, I meant to replace the the ‘T’ with an ‘A’ in T-Pain of the title of this post.)
