"Now that you have understood the basics of Digital Citizenship http://bit.ly/126roRn and have read the digital footprint guide http://bit.ly/14M8MDA , you night be in need of a handy graphic to share with your students to wrap it up all.
This is a clear and succcint expression of key aspects of online behavior. I was glad to see that these exhortations were expressed in positive as well as negative terms; the left column alone is an inspiring read. Well worth posting in a classroom.
“A Guide for Administrators” is the newest resource from CoSN’s Leadership for Mobile Learning initiative.
In the face of the "new normal" of decreased budgets and increased expectations,
many administrators are turning to technology to enhance teaching and learning while mitigating the consequences of consecutive years of budget cuts. Mobile learning, in particular, has attracted a great deal of attention for its potential to engage students by leveraging the technology environment they have grown accustomed to in their non-school lives; its potential to scale personalized learning and reduce the digital divide; its potential to extend learning beyond the four walls of the classroom and the limited hours of the school day; and its potential to enable new pedagogies based on the affordances of these devices that students already carry at their fingertips.Still, the field of mobile learning is still emerging and there are many questions to be addressed when contemplating a mobile learning implementation.
How do we create a program with a sustainable impact on teaching and learning, rather than a superficial adoption of the currently "hot" technology?What are the steps involved in implementing a mobile learning program?How do we optimize the investment of our technology dollars?How do we choose devices, networks, and software for our implementation?What are the security considerations in implementing a mobile learning program?What are the policy considerations for a mobile learning program?What are the professional development considerations?What are the teaching models associated with mobile learning?What are the options for funding a mobile learning program?
ÈIt can be intimidating to try something new in your classroom. This is especially true with technology. I believe that technology should make the work of teachers easier while creating an environment that excites and engages students. Even though I'm coming from an iPad classroom, these structures and routines are great for introducing all one-to-one devices."

Chris Walton's insight:
I like how principal, Erik Burmeister, describes the transformative nature of these devices:"I no longer have to be the bottleneck of information for my students. I actually can be the person in charge of creating incredibly deep and broad learning experiences for kids and giving them the tools to find that factual information themselves."
By recognizing that our prior experience with ICT had created paradigms that constrained our thinking, we are starting to glimpse new learning opportunities made possible by one-to-one integration of iPads. Rather than viewing iPads as substitutes for other technologies (including paper), it is our view that iPads can be used as tools and environments for learning that allow for deeper and more diverse engagements. Our journey with iPads in learning continues.
