Tool #10: Digital Citizens

Students need to be responsible for their actions/words.  What they type/do on the Internet may not be erase and it can leads them into trouble such as cyber bullying and harassment.  Therefore, it is important for them to be thoughtful and be careful on what they like to share online.  The main purposes to use the Ipads are to gain knowledge and increase creativity in their learning.  Students needs to see examples of how people use the internet to hurt one another or put someone into dangerous situations.  Before letting students play with the Ipads or use the computer lab, I like students and parents to sign classroom contracts on how students need to follow the district guidelines and classroom rules.    If parents are  being aware of how students should behave while they are online and in the classroom, there may be less time spending class time correcting the negative or unwanted behavior.  For more teaching tips, guidelines, and ideas please visit the website below:
