My students need to be aware of the pitfalls in the digital world. I would have them discuss and brain storm about:
A. How they can collaborate with other people in a safe Internet environment
and what a safe environment looks like.
B. Technology is great, but they must also work with partners on a real time basis and find time for people in their world.
C. Discuss the Spring Branch ISD digital right codes and how to properly use the Internet in a school setting.
I can share information with parents by placing it on my website. However, I think Schools, not individual teachers, should take on this responsibility. The school needs to include this information (not just a technology form!) in students’ handbook and have parents sign that they accessed the online information and videos. We should also have a students’ assembly on digital responsibility where students can watch these videos.
