Great Back to School Activity for Digital Citizenship

Great Back to School Activity for Digital Citizenship | Concrete_Digital_Footprints | Scoop.it

"Like it or not, today's students are not just citizens. They are "digital" citizens. This means that educators need to spend time with students on ensuring they know how to be responsible online."

Great ideas for a unit that incorporates digital citizenship.

WEAC's curator insight, August 22, 12:41 PM

This activity begins with asking students to think about what they want their online reputation to be and come up with a sentence (perhaps 140 characters) indicating who they are online.  

Jennifer Crutchfield's curator insight, August 23, 7:28 AM

So true that all educators need to do this thanks for sharing @GwenythJones

Should Schools Teach Social Media Skills?

Should Schools Teach Social Media Skills? | Concrete_Digital_Footprints | Scoop.it
Taking selfies at funerals. Tagging pictures of teens drinking alcohol at parties. Kids (and adults for that matter) post a lot of silly stuff online -- and although most of it is chatter, some of what might seem harmless leads to tragic consequences. But is it the job of schools to teach kids the dos and don'ts of social media?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 7, 9:19 AM

It is a combined effort requiring communication between parents, educators, and students. I found that the digital technology charge was often led by those who were not in classrooms and who rarely engaged parents in meaningful and open conversations. Social media is not one more thing to be dumped on classroom teachers. It takes a joint effort.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, June 7, 10:57 AM

I definitely think that schools need to teach social media skills. It goes hand in hand with good research skills and information literacy. It should not be an add on it should be part of it.

gwynethjones's insight:

We've moved beyond the myth or truth of the 48 year old pedophile trolling to groom children in chat rooms and Chris Matthews jumping out behind a kitchen pantry asking awkward questions.


I have discovered in the last 17 years teaching Internet Awareness (There is no safety, only aware) , Most children who are at risk online are already AT RISK offline.


These are some very good myths that NEED to be broken!

Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, June 9, 6:06 AM

I have to agree with Gwyneth Jones in that, "there is no safety, only awareness" when teaching kids digital literacy. These are some great myths that need to be understood so that we can better equip our kids to navigate both the real and virtual world effectively.

gwynethjones's insight:

WARNING & Disclosure: A wee bit of shameless self promotion here - I was honored to be interviewed by the amazing @hitsamty of SLJ

 

What wasn't mentioned but I'm passionate about: It's not the DEVICE it's the DECISION of the teen that makes a difference! I've been preaching internet safety (now awareness) since 97 one of my most embarrassing early webpages is this
http://staff.howard.k12.md.us/~gwynethj/internetsafety/internetsafety.html

A LOT of cringeworthy Don'ts there that I don't believe in anymore! We have to sometimes let kids make the right (or wrong!) choice so that they can learn the right lesson.

 

Or as I said in 2000: "The most effective, reliable, Internet Safety Filter is an Involved, Informed, and Aware Parent  and an Educated and Ethical Kid."* 

 

2013 UPDATE--->> http://www.flickr.com/photos/info_grrl/5727037221/
