Here is a new curriculum resource shared by the GoodPlay Project (Harvard Graduate School of Education) and Project New Media Literacies (established at MIT and now housed at University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism).
The materials are “designed to encourage high school students to reflect on the ethical dimensions of their participation in new media environments.” It’s a fabulous, much needed resource.  
But what I’m left wondering is whether or not there is a similar resource made available to adults?  What do you think?  Certainly, fostering digital citizenship in our youth is critical but what mechanisms, formal or informal, do we have in place to foster these skills in adults?  
Should these also be framed as 21st century professor proficiencies?  And what percentage of professors today have mastered them at this point?  What do you think?
