Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

There are good point made here. The ones about speaking to a trusted adult and spending time away from the Internet are important.

6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety

6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

"Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship are important topics ... 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...it is essential that parents learn about digital literacy so that they can echo and enforce good technology use at home"


Via Beth Dichter, Fishtree Education, Bonnie Bracey Sutton
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

It is equally and perhaps more important to make sure rules are in place and followed up on. Education is part of the long-term solution and must be ongoing, but it cannot be the only part.

This is an entire lesson plan for a school community that has BYOD.  It would be useful (and slightly overwhelming) for educators and parents to look through to have a better grasp on how to support their students.

Looks better for K - 8 teachers than high school (myself).  I do like the week plan of 5 days of focus on digital literacy!

This is an excellent collection of resources, split into age groups and a suggested order of activities. It is an American site, but I like how they have picked up on the cybersmart resource put out by the Australian Government. I would add another one to the list: the resources made by CommonSense Media. These are great too, and Prendiville's digital citizenship unit is based on them.

The Elephant In The Room No One's Talking About

The Elephant In The Room No One's Talking About | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
While we laud the Internet for its speed and its convenience, the darker side is often neglected or rarely discussed. The topic of cyberbullying is the elephant in the room.

Via Luísa Lima, Bonnie Bracey Sutton
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We don't want to acknowledge it because it means having to deal with something some see as an educational panacea. The other key is adults bully regularly. I have been bullied on the Internet and dealing with adults bullying means something different than with children.
