20 Basic Rules For Digital Citizenship

20 Basic Rules For Digital Citizenship | EdTech543 | Scoop.it

The definition of digital citizenship has to do with the quality of behaviors that impact the quality of digital content and communities.

To help clarify what that “quality” can look like, knowthenet.org.uk put together the following infographic framed around Dos and Don’ts. While seemingly written for a more general audience than students and educators, the thinking is sound, including “Treat others they way you want to be treated,” “Don’t forget the human behind the screen,” “Listen first, talk later,” and “Use proper grammar.” (Yes, please do.)

Overall it’s a bit basic, but it does take the important step of moving beyond rhetoric to offer concrete tips to realize the idea.

A Principal's Reflections: BYOD Begins With Trust and Respect

A Principal's Reflections: BYOD Begins With Trust and Respect | EdTech543 | Scoop.it

BYOD Begins With Trust and RespectI have written extensively over the past couple of years about our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative at New Milford High School at the Huffington Post and on myown blog.  It has been interesting to look back at all my blog posts to see how far we have come with BYOD at NMHS.  My first ever post on the topic just provided a small glimpse at the possibilities inherent when students are empowered to use the technology that they already posses to enhance their learning experience.

Apps in Education: Video Conferencing on the iPad

Apps in Education: Video Conferencing on the iPad | EdTech543 | Scoop.it

Video Conferencing is an excellent addition to any teacher's set of classroom tools. Video Conferencing allows you to bring an expert into your class. It lets your students collaborate with students from around the world and it gives you the opportunity to participate in virtual excursions. Video Conferencing also lets your students connect with other schools to discuss issues relevant to them, things like social justice, sustainability projects or even outreach programs. So here is a list of apps that allow you to tap into the positive benefits of Video Conferencing and connecting to the world outside your classroom

Nicole Puffett's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:52 PM

Integrating technology into classrooms can be a very beneficial thing for students. Getting them started with technology at a young age is necessary in our developing world. The way that these technologies are introduced though is very important. Teachers must have a strong understanding of what they are doing, before they try to teach the kids. If they don't do this, then the technology really wont be utalized in a beneficial way to the students.

iLearn Technology » Blog Archive » 6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety | EdTech543 | 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!

4 lessons L.A.'s iPad rollout can teach everyone

4 lessons L.A.'s iPad rollout can teach everyone | EdTech543 | Scoop.it

This year marked the beginning of the Los Angeles Unified School District's massive $1-billion iPad deployment. Putting one of the Apple devices in the hands of all 640,000 of its students is an ambitious move by the nation's second-largest school district—perhaps even too ambitious for the seemingly short time frame in which it was launched.

The rollout only began less than three months ago, but the program has already hit a few notable, and very visible, speed bumps. Still, these bumps in the road are useful for any other districts planning a 1:1 device initiative. Here are four things every district can learn from the nation's largest iPad deployment:
