Why digital citizenship is important

Are you busy preparing new content and learning experiences for your students?  If you are, never miss the opportunity to include digital citizenship in relation to online environments.

This video cleverly highlights the scary truth about how much personal information is available about those who are not careful. A fun way to make a point!

Participant Centered Learning

Participant Centered Learning

The case for participant-centered learning

This is an awesome lecture to listen to.

PROFESSOR JIM AUSTIN: The issue of teaching and learning is a very old issue. Around here at Harvard, people have been thinking about it for a long time. In 1869, one of our most distinguished presidents of the University, Charles Eliot, said, �Our major problem is not what to teach, it is how to teach it.�

And so that is a challenge that always faces every educator: How best to teach? Which is really a question: How best can we learn?

And so in this session, in fact we�re going to explore that. But the purpose of this whole course is focused on a certain type of discussion leadership. It is on participant-centered; it is on discussion-based; it is on active learning. And so, therefore, we�re going to try, at the beginning of this whole program, in this session, to plunge ourselves into that.

What is different about discussion-based leadership, compared to the traditional lecture method, and what are the challenges that this new method implies?

That�s the only question. That�s the simple one we have to answer here. So let�s see where it takes us. What�s different about it?

__: One is centered on the teacher, and the other on the participant.

One Reason Cross-Cultural Small Talk Is So Tricky

Harvard Business Review:

I just found this blog and I like it a lot.

It was my first dinner party in France and I was chatting with a Parisian couple. All was well until I asked what I thought was a perfectly innocent question: “How did the two of you meet?” My husband Eric (who is French) shot me a look of horror. When we got home he explained: “We don’t ask that type of question to strangers in France. It’s like asking them the color of their underpants.”

It’s a classic mistake. One of the first things you notice when arriving in a new culture is that the rules about what information is and is not appropriate to ask and share with strangers are different. Understanding those rules, however, is a prerequisite for succeeding in that new culture; simply applying your own rules gets you into hot water pretty quickly.

A good way to prepare is to ask yourself whether the new culture…
