- Personal and private information
- Being careful with who you meet online
- What websites really want to know about you and why?
Third grade students have been studying digital citizenship in their technology lab class. Each class consisted of mini-lessons and interactive activities on a variety of topics. Some of the topics covered were:
Pre-First teachers are starting their second year teaching with iPads.
Teachers used the iPads at the first meeting with parents to help fill out an informational student survey.
Teachers have been using iPads to project and edit Powerpoint presentations in math, and videos of read-alouds in Language Arts class. The use of Air Server is allowing teachers to interact with the curriculum. The iPads have also been used to project songs (phonics, math), books (from Bookflix, Tumblebooks, wegivebooks.org), and for projecting lined paper onto the board to model writing for the whole group.
First grade teachers and students are excited to be working with their new sets of iPads. Students are focusing on the basics. Teachers are collaborating and co-teaching lessons to ensure that all students are prepared to handle the new devices in the classroom. Teachers are now exploring new apps, participating in PLCs, and collaborating with teachers in other grade levels.
These images show some of the class rules that have been agreed upon for using the ipads.
Second graders are starting the year learning how to be responsible digital citizens. They understand the difference between public and private information, including personal information that they should never give out. They have also been discussing what makes a good password. They have school-based email accounts and have learned how to use those accounts safely.
