iLearn Technology » Blog Archive » 6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

At Anastasis Academy we are a 1:1 BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) school with EVERY student using technology throughout the day every day.  Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship are important topics for us because it is so integral to what our kids do while they are at school.  Whether or not you have a 1:1 program, these are topics that shouldn’t be overlooked!  Don’t assume that because your students are fairly savvy when it comes to learning technology, that they will automatically pick up on digital literacy.  Digital Literacy isn’t a topic that should be relegated to school either, it is essential that parents learn about digital literacy so that they can echo and enforce good technology use at home.  This week we will have a week of intensive digital literacy training for our students.  Being a BYOD school means that these topics come up as we go through the year often, it is nice for us to have an intensive week to refer students back to throughout the school year.  So much of digital literacy echoes good safety practices in “real” life.  As such, we spend time discussing online and offline safety practices during this week and have our local school deputy join us.  When I was a technology teacher, I would end this week with an Internet Driver’s License, students had to pass a safety quiz in order to get their license.  This was their ticket to being able to be online in my class.  Students could lose their license for inappropriate online behavior.  This was always popular for kindergarten through fifth grade students!  Below are our favorite resources to use.  We choose a different digital literacy topic for each day of the week, follow along or mix it up to meet your own needs!

Why schools are like my daughter’s terrible Art!

Why schools are like my daughter’s terrible Art! | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
I'm not a bad parent or nasty but thinking objectively, my 9-year-old daughter's latest painting from school is a shockingly bad piece of art. It's use of the paint medium is half-hearted and lacking in purpose, her composition is even and uninteresting, her choice of colour is neither complimentary nor figurative, and she has failed to show any…
