Criteria for Quality Curation

In EDTECH 543, I learned about content curation and how to execute effective content curation. One keystone concept that appeared constantly was the ethical use of content. In my criteria for content curation, I have a section dedicated to the ethics of content curation. While I hadn’t even thought about crediting sources previously on platforms such as Pinterest, or Twitter, as the link was always there, I now realize the importance of giving proper credit even on social media sharing pages. I was also unaware of “no follow links,” something I will always be sure to deactivate while curating content for educational use. As I collect content from social media platforms for coaching and teaching purposes, I will give credit, and ensure I am not using "no follow link." This artifact demonstrates the use of ethical guidelines while creating material, and the use of copy write and ethics within the material itself.

Professional Ethics Animation

PLO 4 - Professional Ethics Animation.JPG

In EDTECH 501, I created an animation explaining the application of AECT Section 3 Commitment to the Profession. This artifact outlines the ten ethical standards within the AECT Section 3 and describes how they applied to the situation presented within the animation. This animated story is described from the perspective of a Network Security Specialist who is instructing her colleagues on how to use their new network system. The Network Security Specialist explains what is safe to do on the network and what is not safe to do on the network to protect her colleagues and the company from potential harm. The AECT 3 standards described within this animation are rules I will continue to apply as I work within profession enviroment. To ensure information is being shared ethically, and to protect those who share said information. This artifact demonstrates my ability to explain and apply profession and ethical standards within my professiona nd educational practices.

Communicating with Empathy

In EDTECH 512, I developed an online course called Communicating with Empathy using the iterative design model. During the creation of this course, I acquired support materials under the creative commons license, or materials allowed to be used so long as the source was credited. I included alt texts for all graphics contained on the website. I also used multiple online filters to ensure that people with color blindness would not have difficulty interacting with the course material. There were also video tutorials on how to use Canvas. I also included hyperlinks to every course material and assignment referenced on the course pages, rather than requiring the students to find the material or assignment themselves. While navigating an online course may come easy to some, it hinders others. There are multiple barriers others may face while accessing content, physical, emotional, and mental. Removing as many of these barriers as possible makes course content more accessible. This is a practice I will intigrate into courses I design in the future. This artifact demonstrates my ability to apply accessibility standards while designing educational content.

Positive Digital Footprint and Reputation Management Plan

In EDTECH 543, I developed a plan to create and maintain a positive digital footprint. Ten points to this plan involve maintaining a social media presence without presenting negative information. This plan involves both personal information security and online netiquette guidelines. As I learned about digital footprints, I discovered how much information is available about someone online. This checklist includes protecting your privacy and how to maintain an appropriate social media presence online. My career is heavily focused on interacting online. As I move forward, I will use this outline as teaching tool to help my future players maintain a positive digital footprints, and online safety. This artifact demonstrates my ability to apply ethics and netiquette guidelines while facilitating social media instruction, and developing course materials.

Content Curation

In EDTECH 543, I currated content centered around the uses of social media within education. For this project I used the online tool! to currate the projects that demonstrated the uses of social media as a teaching tool. This artifact demonstrates the uses of eithical content curation, as I utilized the above mentioned Criteria for Effective Curation to guide the gathering of this information. The platform automatically allows each post to be linked back to the original source, and gives credit to the original information source. I will utilize platforms similiar to! to curate content, and provide proper credit to the creators, for my coaching and teaching purposes as I continue to work in my field.
