Tool # 10 Post

Digital Citizenship is evident if :
1) Students accept and practice safe, legal, and responsible use of information and technology.
2) Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to technology and exhibit a positive attitude toward using technology that supports collaboration, learning, and productivity.
3) Students demonstrate personal responsibility for lifelong learning and show leadership for digital citizenship.
I plan to familiarize myself with the chart and resources that SBISD has on the Ed Tech Website.  It is easy to follow.  I looked at the Cyber-bullying video on Digizen and think that this would be appropriate for MS and HS teachers to share with their students and then offer an opportunity for them to share anonymously on Wall Wisher or Poll Everywhere.
I ended up joining the Cool-Cat Blog as I was impressed with the web references that Vicki Davis shared on how teachers can model good digital citizenship strategies.  Students need the opportunity to learn how to search for quality, credible information sites and they need to practice this over and over and over again. As a classroom teacher, this can be a very important tool to pass on to students.
