8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

11 Tips for Engaging Parents | Tech Learning

Shelley writes, "One of the best survival lessons I learned as a teacher was to engage parents. At the ISTE2016 conference I shared my tips and resources for engaging parents. Take this summer to create a plan for communicating with parents better. Trust me, if a parent is talking negatively about you at home, then you will have a difficult time getting the child to listen or behave properly in your class. However, if the parent likes you then you have an ally on your side! Engaging parents is a challenge."
