A website dedicated to informing secondary students and their teachers of copyright law, plagiarism policies, and caveats in order to uphold literary integrity and digital ethics through a compilation of various media.
Teaching students the importance of having and using manners is nothing new to teachers. However, what has changed is the type of etiquette kids needs today—namely, the digital kind. True, please, thank you and excuse me are still significant, but in addition to these basics, students growing up in this ever-connected, social media crazed world require much more.

"Can you make it a week using only the iPad and not a dekstop computer? That is the question that I would like to attempt to answer this week as I take a challenge to work from an iPad for the whole week without using a desktop computer. I understand that this sounds like a first world problem or challenge but for someone who relies on a MacBook to do a lot different work throughout the day, this will definitely be a big challenge. My new found interest in this comes following a recent iPad conference with EdTech Teacher in Atlanta. After seeing some of the amazing things that teachers and students are doing with iPads, I thought I can do more with my iPad. I felt that the best way to do this would be to challenge myself to use my iPad more and using it exlusively will definitely be a challenge. So now I begin the iPad challenge.
