Digital Citizenship Discussion Cards - Dr. Kristen Mattson - 2 views

  •  
    "You can create a safe space for your students to engage in conversation about digital topics with though-provoking images and a variety of activities.

    Students of all ages can use the image/discussion cards I've created in a variety of ways. Asking students to group images and assign groups a label will force them to engage in discussion and analysis of the artwork in front of them. The questions on the back of the image cards can make great journal prompts, debate topics, and launches for research and inquiry projects."

Why children should be taught to build a positive online presence - 1 views

  •  
    "Rather than just teaching children about internet safety and reducing their digital footprint, we should also encourage them to curate a positive digital footprint which will be an asset for them in their future.

    Today's children are prolific users of the internet. Concern has been raised about the future impact of the digital footprints they are generating. While much discussion of this issue focuses on keeping children safe, little is known about how children manage their digital footprints.

    While digital footprints are considered to be a liability, if managed well they can be an asset. Digital footprints can showcase identity, skills and interests. This is important in an era where employers "google" candidates to check their identity and verify their suitability. In this context, having no digital footprint can be as much of a disadvantage as having a poorly managed one.

    The "Best Footprint Forward" project explored what children know about digital footprints. Focus groups were made up of 33 children aged 10-12 years from three schools in regional NSW. Analysis of the focus groups reveals children have strategies to keep safe online, but they need further guidance on how to build a positive digital footprint."

We Need Cellphones In School Because They're Distracting - Looking UpLooking Up - 2 views

  •  
    "Cellphones in schools is a subject I've discussed at length before and one that doesn't seem to be going away any time soon. It's a bellweather issue, an issue that indicates clearly where you sit on the educational spectrum. Do schools teach students "the rules" or help students learn effectively?"
