Digital rights and responsibilities

Page history last edited by shahaye@... 12 years, 8 months ago

Just as in the American Constitution where there is a Bill of Rights, there is a basic set of rights extended to every digital citizen. Digital citizens have the right to privacy, free speech, etc. Basic digital rights must be addressed, discussed, and understood in the digital world.  With these rights also come responsibilities as well.  Users must help define how the technology is to be used in an appropriate manner.  In a digital society these two areas must work together for everyone to be productive.  Mike Ribble





Personal Learning Network


This is my Personal Learning Network as of July 10, 2009. This is a work in progress as I learn more about Century 21 teaching and learning tools. I hope to incorporate Twitter, and I belong to a Ning but I would like to create one soon. I'm hoping my students will share some cool tools and programs they are using, too.

PROMPT: Consider this assignment a before and after snapshot of your CyberIdentity. How do you connect, collaborate, create, collect and communicate today? How will you connect, collaborate, create, collect and communicate at the end of the unit? You will create a living document in Google documents and take a snapshot at the beginning of the course and at then at the end. Our wrapup will include a reflection on your learning.

I am impressed with how far you've come since we chatted about this assessment
this morning. WOW. Good for you. I like how you are modeling your own growth
by documenting your work in the PLN. This is a great tool to use with your students.
Nice work.
