Last week I finished a survey from ISTE on my opinion about the role of schools in teaching digital citizenship. I believe it is not only the parents and schools share the responsibility to train their child on the safety and manage their conduct online. By coincidence, last week Edmodo released a poster (shown below) that lays out the expectations for online behavior.
As students form their online identities, they need to reflect on how are they viewed professionally. Of course, this may be the last thing on their mind when posting updates on Twitter or FB.
Anyway, it is highly recommended for (high school) students to get on LinkedIn and work on repairing their online presence that they created. This blog post illustrates how this can be done.

Internet, Twitter, Web 2.0
edchat, Twitter, twitter4educators
As I got in from my extended weekend, I picked up my THE Journal out of the mailbox this evening and briefly read through the Tweets for Teachers article. Decent read, but could not help to notice the advertisement of the hash tag ‘edchat’. I was delighted to see that this place got some noteworthy recognition on Twitter.
Further along the the article, it pointed out that many educators do not see the value of Twitter, but via #edchat allows intelligent dialogue around a designated educational topic which is usually voted on. Cannot forget to mention that in the article also mentioned #teachertuesday.
Twitter is just another vehicle of collaboration via web 2.0. Remember my fellow educators, let’s use it to our benefit, not our demise.

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.

I ran into a twitter post by Wayne Sutton about this new site called tweetasy. The goal of tweetasy is write a whole story using only 140 characters including the #asy tag. I posted a few very short stories. On the website, you can also vote on the stories that you like, kinda like or don’t like. Check it out and give me some feedback on what you think!
