For your Tool #10 assignment:

1.    Discuss at least three things you would want to make sure your students understand about being good digital citizens. 

There is to be no cyber bullying, they must surf educationally approved sites, when we are writing papers and using the web as a resource we must be sure not to violate any copyright laws, and last but certainly not least the use of technology is a privilege and as a student it is their responsibility to transport our technology properly or that privilege will be taken away. 

2.    Share at least one of the resources mentioned above or on the Ed Tech website that you plan to use instructionally.

3.    Explain briefly how you would "teach" the idea of digital citizenship to your students.

  Play a short clip that educates students about digital citizenship, have them pair share about what they learned, have an open discussion to review key points, and create a short quiz or have students write a brief summary about digital citizenship and use as an exit ticket. 

4.    Explain briefly how you plan to share the idea of digital citizenship with your parents.

  Share at meet the teacher night the responsibilities of all students concerning technology, have computers set up so that students can explore and share with parents what they do, and explain digital citizenship at that time and include information in class rules.

  1. I like your idea you suggested in regards to the digital citizenship and having the students review it with their parents at the same time. Have you had the opportunity to do that yet? If so, was it successful?
