Lisa Kingswell's insight:

'Dandelion' is a short story about bullying at school.  Random House Australia have published teaching resources that can be used for students aged 5-12 years.

There are many other books and resources focusing on other social justice themes.  These can be found at http://www.randomhouse.com.au/teachers/

Helping Students Create Positive Digital Footprints - ASCD Annual Conference 2012

Helping Students Create Positive Digital Footprints - ASCD Annual Conference 2012 | Creating a positive digital footprint for the future | Scoop.it
Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner.
Lisa Kingswell's insight:

Technology teacher and author Steve Johnson believes that "to guide positive online posting, teachers need to build an environment of flexible problem solving where students are immersed in tasks, can make mistakes, and find multiple solutions". 

When we are in a classroom, our overall aim is to create a safe environment where students are free to make mistakes, and be themselves. 

Johnson offers basic ideas for teachers to use within the classroom to educate students about their digital footprint.

Lisa Kingswell's insight:

This is a blog about the advantages and disadvantages of letting our children have a facebook account.  While is allows our children to socialise and express themselves, it also opens them up to online bullying and preditors.  Will you let your child have a facebook account?  Will you and your child make the decision together?

Lisa this blog certainly creates some food for thought.One positive aspect to facebook that I have found with my kids is that they set up pages to share ideas and help with homework and assessment tasks.Their school conducts a good program alerting them to the dangers of cyber bullying and online predators.

Kids Helpline lends an extra ear

Kids Helpline lends an extra ear | Creating a positive digital footprint for the future | Scoop.it
Lisa Kingswell's insight:

It is important that children are able to talk to someone when in need; this may be because of abuse, schoolyard and online bullying, relationship challenges, drug and alcohol abuse, suicidality and other self-harming behaviour. 

With children spending more and more time online, online bullying does occur.  Bullying can effect children in many different ways and sometimes children feel that they do not have anyone that they trust to talk to.  The Australian Government has set up Kids Helpline where children are able to call for free from a landline or mobile.  Kids Helpline is completely anonymous and is staffed by qualified counsellors and is available 24/7. 

Do we as teachers let children know their options or is it a parents responsibility?

Definitely something that needs more publication everywhere, especially in the era of cyber bullying when so called trusted friends and networks can turn against kids making them feel there is no one to turn to.! I will be a Kids Helpline advocate as a teacher for sure!
