Gifted Kids as Digital Citizens

Our parents taught us how to answer the phone safely, and not to let strangers into the house when they weren't home.  Today, the perils are different. Our children are growing up as citizens of the digital world; they will never remember an age without the Internet, Google and Facebook.  We need to teach our kids how to avoid e-mail, internet, and social networking pitfalls, how to avoid becoming the victim or perpetrator of cyber-bullying, and how to live as responsible digital citizens.  These are great tools and curriculum for all ages!

For Parents and Teachers...

Did You Know 3.0 Recommended by Karl Fisch on YouTube
"The top 10 in-demand jobs in 2010 did not exist in 2004. We are currently preparing students for jobs that don't exist yet, using technologies that haven't been invented yet, in order to solve problems we don't even know are problems yet. 1 out of 8 couples married in the US in 2011 met online...  Did you know?  Also watch the original Shift Happens: Did You Know? by Karl Fisch and Scott McLeod, Did You Know 2.0, and an updated Shift Happens 2008 by a Sony executive (less education, more technology-based)
Teaching Kids to be Their Own Internet Filters Recommended by Katrina Schwartz in MindShift
Students live in an information-saturated world. Rather than shielding them from the digital world, many agree the most effective way to keep them safe and using the internet responsibly as a learning tool is to teach them how to be their own filters. That’s not only a life skill, but one that’s important when researching. Older kids, especially, have the capacity to learn how to decide which online sources can be trusted and why. “If we are not teaching the kids to use the web as a vehicle for enhancing learning and teaching them to be the filter, that’s a dereliction of duty.”

Raising a Digital Child by Mike Ribble
Cell phones, online games, instant messaging, social networking, and other technologies have all become so important in the daily of lives of young people. The kids view this new digital culture as a normal way of life, even though as parents you may feel overwhelmed by all the unfamiliar challenges. Cyber bullies, stalkers, identity theft, intellectual property theft - it is hard to know just what you can do to confront the risks. Not just the "how to" but the "whys"...
