The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus Rare photo of the elusive tree octopus The Pacific Northwest tree octopus (Octopus paxarbolis) can be found in the temperate rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula on the west coast of North America. An intelligent and inquisitive being (it has the largest brain-to-body ratio for any mollusk), the tree octopus explores its arboreal world by both touch and sight. Reaching out with one of her eight arms, each covered in sensitive suckers, a tree octopus might grab a branch to pull herself along in a form of locomotion called tentaculation; or she might be preparing to strike at an insect or small vertebrate, such as a frog or rodent, or steal an egg from a bird's nest; or she might even be examining some object that caught her fancy, instinctively desiring to manipulate it with her dexterous limbs (really deserving the title "sensory organs" more than mere "limbs",) in order to better know it. Why It's Endangered
How to Create Social Media Guidelines for Your School Produced in collaboration with Facebook. Social media is fast becoming as ubiquitous as the air we breathe. In recent months, many schools and districts around the country have taken steps to create social media policies and guidelines for their students and staff. In my work with several districts to draft these documents, I have seen many approaches that work well, and some that don't. That said, there is no silver bullet for administrators; every school, district, and state has a different set of circumstances. 2. This team should include educators who use social media in the classroom and those who do not. This team should be open and transparent in all their conversations and decision making, and be clear about their shared goal. Questions for ReflectionDoes everyone on the team share the same goal?

The Online Safety Roadshow – Safety Center – Google Tip 1 - Think Before You Share The web connects us and allows us to share in ways that have never before been possible. We can reach friends near and far with just a click. But what you share and who you share it with can end up saying a lot about you. To help create the best version of your story online, it’s good to know our first tip: think before you share. What’s this mean? Tip 2 - Protect Your Stuff Our second tip, is to protect your stuff. Most of us have things on the web that we want to keep safe. Strong passwords are really important. And once a strong password has been created, it should not be shared with anyone. Protecting your stuff also means locking devices AND your screens. Tip 3 - Know and Use Your Settings The settings on the sites you visit allow you to choose what you share and who you share with. Understand and adjust your settings on the sites and apps you use. Tip 4 - Avoid Scams Know how to identify scams online. Tip 5 - Be Positive

The CyberSafety Net | Cybersafety @ Coomera Anglican College Blog Mentor Text - Teacher's Blog Our Space: Being a Responsible Citizen of the Digital World For most young people today, engagement with new digital media is a routine aspect of life. Through computers, mobile phones, and other handheld devices, youth can blog, tweet, participate in social networks like Facebook, play massive multi-player games, use online information sources, and share videos, stories, music, and art they’ve created. Important skills and knowledge can be gained from such activities, but there are also risks. For example, young people may only rarely consider what it means to be an ethical, socially responsible “citizen” on the Internet. Our Space is a set of curricular materials designed to encourage high school students to reflect on the ethical dimensions of their participation in new media environments. Our Space was co-developed by Project New Media Literacies (established at MIT and now housed at University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism) and The GoodPlay Project (Harvard Graduate School of Education).
Can you google that? – informationssökning på engelska Att internet flyttat in i våra klassrum är det ingen som har missat, men att det smugit sig in bland kunskapskraven är det många som missat, försöker låtsas om att de inte sett eller helt enkelt tycker är riktigt jobbigt. Men det finns ju där, vad vi än tycker om det. Det ska undervisas och bedömas, säga vad man vill om det. Att gå in på hur relevant och effektivt eleverna återanvänder sina sökresultat i sin egna produktion är en diskussion i sig, men nu tänkte jag fokusera på själva undervisningen. Can you google that? Som en del av övningen gör eleverna en självskattning, hämtad från bedömningsstödet. Efter genomgång och självskattning får eleverna öva på att söka information. Filen med övningen kan ni hämta här. Den som följt min blogg känner säkert igen frågorna, de är hämtade från det här inlägget. När vi avslutat denna övning kommer eleverna att få genomföra något av de olika prov som finns i Skolverkets bedömningsstöd.
