Digital Natives Presentation

Ken's Key Takeaway:

Here a bold statement....of my 2000+ posts, this might be my most important.  I am happy with this slideshare find regarding digitatal citizenship, bullying, information overload and more.

66 quality slides.  If you have a child or work with teens, I stronlgy suggest using this as a conversation starter.

 

My key key takeaway is the image of a child with a tatoo.  Our digital activity is like a tatoo for all of us.  We can decide what type of tatoo we create, but we all get a tatoo!
