I subscribe to the LinkedIn group Technology in Education (TechED) and recently came across the discussion posting below:
Helping Kids Manage the New Rules of Digital Etiquette - Raising Digital Natives http://buff.ly/1yYMEEmHelping Kids Manage the New Rules of Digital Etiquette raisingdigitalnatives.com Many parents feel lost navigating the changing landscape of digital etiquette. So what can you do to learn the rules, together with your child?
It reminded me that part of the push to implement technology in corrections classrooms is so that incarcerated learners will not be at a complete loss in knowing how to navigate our increasingly technology saturated world. Correctional educators have been doing a great job of simulating on-line environments and I think many talk about the changes taking place outside of the prison walls, but how will these returning citizens succeed on the outside without any working knowledge of the technology that is more and more necessity -- for job applications as well as many actual duties of employment (retail, taxi or delivery driver, teacher), banking, shopping, communications etc...etc...?
