2010 Top Most Fascinating List of Education Blogs.

Despite many are doing round ups to feature the most relevant news or post of the 2010, we think for educators and for many edublogs a good way to close this year productively, is to endorse en recommend the people who had contributed to education, the editors and bloggers who without being paid have known to share the best info and knowledge at their discretion.

For brevity we only mentioned the Eddies2010 once the announcement was made, but Around the Corner and Doug - Off the Record went a step ahead and published the complete list of education blogs patronized and selected after the edublogawards.com

As Miguel writes, "If your blog isn't on the list, I hope you'll add it in the comments, then copy the list and share it with others.

12 Ethical Principles to Ensure Students' Safety Online

I've been reading Doug Johnson's blog from a while. This particular post struck me and had me reading it some more time. Nor I was slow to read, neither the post wasn't clear enough, it was the interesting information contained in there.

First, Johnson’s 3 P’s of Technology Ethics: 1) Privacy - I will protect my privacy and respect the privacy of others; 2) Property - I will protect my property and respect the property of others; and, 3) a(P)propriate Use - I will use technology in constructive ways and in ways which do not break the rules of my family, church, school, or government. This a textual transcription, but I'll ask you to discuss with your students specially No. 3.

Secondly, the way he argues the school should not only install Internet filters but 'show due diligence' to ensure that once the students are at their own outside school, they can safely navigate de WWW. However, he says teachers are to proactively work with students to show them the path:

    1. Articulate personal values when using technology.
    2. Stress the consideration and application of principles rather than relying on a detailed set of rules.
    3. Model ethical behaviors.
    4. Build student trust.
    5. Encourage discussion of ethical issues.
    6. Accept the fact students will make mistakes.
    7. Allow students personal use of the Internet.
    8. Reinforce ethical behaviors and react to the misuse of technology.
    9. Create environments that help students avoid temptations.
    10. Assess children’s understanding of ethical concepts.
    11. Educate our students and ourselves.
    12. Educate your parents about ethical technology use.
