Digital Citizenship

As I prepare for my final make I still have a bit of resistance based around the digital world.  Another inquiry question this semester was “how can I trust that my students are properly using the internet?”  I’ve always felt very anxious about giving the kids too much choice, because I worry about losing the control of what my students find on the internet.  I decided this PBL will be a great opportunity for me to drop my fears, and give up the control!  I designed a Digital Citizenship presentation to conduct with my class.  This way I’ve covered all the basis in terms of internet safety and my expectations.  This is still a really scary concept for me, but I also have to realize that by shielding them I am preventing my students from so many learning opportunities. One of the most fascinating things I’ve learned about this semester was genius hour, and I want to give that opportunity to my kids.  In order to do so, I will do the best I can to teach them how to properly be digital citizens.  I signed up for a free trial and created this on “Prezi.”  For those of you who have never used it, it is user friendly, and presents information in a more exciting way than a traditional power point presentation.  Please click on the link below to view my creation, and feel free to use it in your own classrooms!

  1. This is a great resource, Lacey! Thanks for sharing. (And I played the digital footprint video for my son….which led to a conversation about how frequently we change our various passwords. 🙂
