Welcome to 11 things

This blog is for my 11 things class. I will be documenting my learning as I go along this summer! I am hoping to get it all done while the family is out and about!

I am hoping to blog next school year with my students!

This is my second blog, the first is mylifeshouldbeonrealitytv.blogspot.com. It is about my family and the quirky things that happen to us! And really there are always funny things happening here!

Rules for good digital citizenship

1. Discuss at least three things you would want to make sure your students understand about being good digital citizens.
1. If you wouldn't want your mom to read it then don't send it to someone else. Everything electronic can be shared!
2. I think you need to balance this with the reason we want them to be on the Internet in the first place. Students need to be explicitly taught the "rules" that are appropriate.
3. I think in my classroom that I need to make it very clear cyber bullying will not be tolerated. Since there is an element of being concealed it is much easier for some kids to make remarks about others without thinking it is a big deal. It is a big deal!

I think students sometimes think they are protected by the very fact that they are at school but they need to know some of the dangerous of the Internet as well.
I like the brainpop on digital etiquette and the one of digital citizenship

  1. Brain pop is excellent....there are also somme other sites that are great. I have a video that every parent should see...will make them think about at least talking with their children!
    If we start in Kinder...we'll have good grounding by the time they hit fifth grade!
