Thoughts on Norms

I think Don Tapscott has a good idea of how us teens are from his norms but he acts like he knows all of us and he kind of puts a label on us saying that we are all computer savvy or tech savvy. I think some of the norms are true like customization and freedom because most if not all teens are both of those. Other than that Tapscott just kind of judges us.

Tapscott Chapter 8

Our generation is totally different than previous generations.  Different things have become normal and important for us such as freedom and personalization.  Knowing these characteristics help focus the learning process of our generation.  Making changes including shifting from instruction to discovery and going to one size fits one instead of one size fits all.  Methods such of these will greatly benefit classroom learning.

Social Entrepreneurs Give Hope to Invisible Children

My assigned topics for this project were Social Entrepreneurship and Virtual Communication. In order to describe the connection between these two topics, I discussed the Invisible Children's Organization. They utilize many forms of virtual communication in order to spread the story of the LRA's destruction and gain support.

Turn Your Digital Footprint into a Fabulous Digital Handshake

My idea is to have students use internet search engines to look for information about themselves and evaluate what they find to determine if the images, videos and work associated with their names online give a positive and accurate representation of who they are offline. Students will create a short (1-2) minute video that is to be used as a digital handshake, or a way to present themselves to someone whom they do not know. Students will only be able to use video, images and information…

Currently, I am part of the topic, 3D Printing,  and am working in collaboration with several students around the world on the subtopic, Freedom (Choice). Although I have been aware of 3D printing and thier amazing possiblities, I never knew how they gave people freedom to customize and choose any object that comes to mind. Also, working on this project with several different students…
