    The rapid growth and rate of change in social networking sites has  created some concerns for New Zealand educators.  As well as providing quick and easy channels for communication, social networking has brought to light a number of issues arising from the public nature of opinions and comments and the amount of personal information that is publically accessible.

    This (New Zealand August 2010) report describes a project to explore what digital information literacy is and how it could be most effectively applied in tertiary education. It provides an initial definition of digital information literacy based on a review of the national and international literature. It identifies methods to develop adults’ digital skills and capabilities, and to understand how these contribute to lifelong learning. 

    Its key findings are that having dedicated time, support and the opportunity to experiment with a range of ICT tools were essential for developing digital information literacy. The research showed that this could be achieved in a relatively short and intensive period of professional development and that this resulted in large changes to participants’ digital information behaviour and skills.

    The very idea of the Guide layer in the LGP model recognises the role that all guides play in suporting young people as they aquire the necessary skills to become succesful digital citizens. WHen we talk about guides it is easy to simply place teachers into that role (guides on the side) and put the onous on them to increase their skill and confidence levels in supporting young people. 

    But the idea of guides has always tried to encompass all guides, teachers, community leaders, peers and particularly parents.

    When you consider the amount of time that young people spend online outside of school, it seems obvious that parents as highly important in the guiding process.

    But where do parents go to improve their knowledge, to build there confidence? Research carried out by the ACMA in Australia identified that parents see the best channel for this type of support is direct from schools, or at least recommended by schools that their children are attending.

    This short list of suggestions, is a series of managable, "bite sized" chunks of digital citizenship advice written by expert practitioners that schools can feed out to their community to try and help in this learning process. Perhaps their is something here that appeals to you, or seems to support what you are trying to do in your school.

    Here at NetSafe we have been gaving a few conversations about Snapchat. There appears to be some confusion as to what it does, how it works and wether is poses any threat to young people.

    A thought provoking article that talks about the role of social media both acutely and downstream of major events. It references how students learned from and then interacted with the news of the Boston Bombing online rather than via "traditional" media

    Each time NetSafe gets together with groups of teachers, there is invariably a discussion around Facebook and its use in the classroom. Put any group of educators together and you are likely to have a range of opinions from whole hearted support for the social network, to those who feel that it has no place inside a classroom.
