Dear fellow scientists,
I have been thinking about one of the main reasons why this blog was created and that is to share what is being learned about in this class with the rest of the world. It’s one thing to learn something and it’s quite another to share it with others that we know, and an even more powerful thing to share what we’ve been learning about with those that we don’t know.
As we choose to share our ideas, whether it’s making a post or comment on a blog, on Facebook, or in an email or text message, we choose to accept the responsibility for our words. And this idea has me thinking about whether or not there is a difference in digital citizenship compared to being a citizen in a live community, like a classroom, or a family, or even on a sports team or other organization.
So what are your thoughts? Is there a difference in how people should share their ideas whether it is actual spoken words or in written form?
Is there a difference in how people should share their ideas in a formal setting like in a classroom or when they are just hanging out with a group of peers?
What questions do you have about being a good citizen, whether it’s face-to-face or online?
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts! I value your comments.
