Carpenter co-authors articles for Educational Leadership, Phi Delta Kappan
Jeffrey Carpenter, associate professor of education and director of the Teaching Fellows program, co-authored two articles that appeared in November issues of the journals Educational Leadership and Phi Delta Kappan.
Jeffrey Carpenter, associate professor of education and director of the Teaching Fellows and co-author Daniel Krukta of the University of North Texas have published an article titled "Digital Citizenship in the Curriculum" in the journal Educational Leadership. The article was part of a special issue of the journal titled "Citizens in the Making." The article can be found here. The article abstract reads as follows:
"If education is to be a safeguard of democracy, then recent events suggest tweets and other social media must be part of curriculum," write Daniel G. Krutka and Jeffrey P. Carpenter. In this article, the authors argue that teaching citizenship also requires teaching with and about social media. They provide a framework for educators to prepare students for three different types of digital citizenship: personally-responsible, participatory, and justice-orientated.
Also, Carpenter and co-authors Jayme Linton of Lenoir Rhyne University and Steven Weber of the Fayetteville (AR) Public Schools published an article titled "Edcamps are for Principals too" in the journal Phi Delta Kappan. The article can be found here.
