Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kids today grow up in a digital world with potential for communication, collaboration, and creation, and yet schools face challenges with ethical issues that arise from studentsÕ use of technology, such as cyberbullying, inappropriate sharing, and plagiarism. In this session, learn about three factors schools can use to create a positive culture around digital citizenship, with a focus on iPad classrooms. First, learn about how to teach students digital citizenship skills, covering eight key topics and including a free Digital Literacy & Citizenship curriculum developed in partnership with Howard Gardner and the GoodPlay Project at Harvard as well as Digital Passport, a learning game for upper elementary students. Next, learn how to engage and inform parents about managing their childrenÕs technology use and helping kids make smart choices. Finally, hear about strategies schools have used to educate teachers about digital citizenship, moving away from the lone teacher who is responsible, to a more cross-curricular and cross-faculty approach that helps build capacity and community in schools. Learn how these three factors work together to build a positive school climate around digital citizenship.
