What's the rule on mobile phones in your local school? - 0 views

  • Chances are they're banned - to stop students texting their friends all the time, or worse still, cyber-bullying. But are schools missing a trick?

Alex and Charlotte from Westhoughton High School in Bolton wanted to investigate this issue. They interviewed one boy who'd experienced cyber-bullying - getting abusive and threatening text messages on his mobile phone.

    This documents students using Google Lively to teach other students about digital citizenship
  •  
    For our project, we chose to create a virtual room, called Digiteen World, on Google Lively. Our main objective of this project is to get people more aware about Digital Citizenship. We will be allowing kids from our school to get on Lively, and react in the virtual world. We have created nine superheroes. Each superhero has a lesson to teach abut the nine aspects of Digital Citizenship. By teaching the lessons in a virtual room, the kids get to have a great time and still learn very important lessons. The goal of this project is to educate people on how to act online. In allowing kids to be a part of this project, we hope that they will learn how to be good digital citizens.

  • Schools are starting to embrace iPods, portable digital media players, as teaching tools.

  • While iTunes U content is available to anyone with a computer, internet connection and free iTunes software, some question the commercial aspect of using it in schools.
  • "If you want to prepare your students for real life in the global economy, you want them to be able to interface with these technologies. It's got to be part of their education,"

When the student did not receive an immediate reply, another eMail arrived 30 minutes later. By the time Davis logged on the following morning, he had four eMails from this student. "A lot of our younger students using technology are used to that instant gratification when they reach out and ping somebody," Davis said. "But I tell students I'm not available 24 hours a day."
