DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP FOR ONLINE COMMUNICATION
How can we structure classroom expectations and guidelines for online communication in order to develop good digital citizenship skills in our students? When our school implemented a 1:1 laptop program, this became even more important. Come to this session to learn about and experience parts of three different lessons we used with middle school students to help them understand online sharing guidelines and the importance of creating a positive digital footprint. Bonus: Learn about Google Classroom in the process!
