Limited motor control
You may want to limit how many pieces they divide their picture into. For some students, scissors may be a better option than ripping due to limited fine motor control. For students who may find this part challenging, you can draw lines on the paper (if the student allows you to) for them to cut along the lines. Perhaps draw lines like puzzle pieces so it is easier to put the picture back together.
Limited motor control
You may want to provide sticky tape so that students can rejoin the pieces to make putting their picture back together easier.
Limited abstract thinking skills
Another way you might want to conceptualize this point and show it in a more ‘concrete’ way is for a student to draw a picture and give it to another student. Have that student (with assistance) go to a photocopier and make copies to give out to two students. Then have those two students make copies (and so forth) to show the original drawer how quickly their picture can be shared.
One of the key concepts within the Digital Technologies curriculum is Interactions and impacts. The interactions and impacts concept focuses on all aspects of human interaction with and through information systems, and the enormous potential for positive and negative economic, environmental and social impacts enabled by these systems. It involves appreciating the transformative potential of digital systems in people’s lives. It also involves consideration of the relationship between information systems and society and in particular the ethical and legal obligations of individuals and organisations regarding ownership and privacy of data and information.
A key understanding underpinning Digital Citizenship is the idea of permanency of information shared online, which includes issues around the idea of ownership. It is important for students to understand the interconnected nature of the internet, and that once something has been shared online it is impossible to fully retrieve.
When we post anything online it is important to understand the ownership implications of this information, and how difficult it can be to take something back once it is in an online space.
