With almost unlimited ways to interact with others, including those peers at the school, within the School District, and beyond, one of the main thing we need to be aware is students security, and teach them how to act technological responsible.
A series of indications to conduct a responsible use of technology, a permanent monitoring of their activities and actions from us as a teachers at school, as well as their parents at home.
Etiquete of course will be usefull to conduct them with maners, but the most useful way to keep my students on task with out need to insist to avboid unproper internet sites nor mobile applications, is on one side applications disponibility, activities monitoring, and a stron CLASS MANAGEMENT. I need as a techer to set high expectations, but also to set clear objectives and very clear consecuences when he/she fails to commit the digital citizenship.
I think a good activity for the first week of school will be to write our own SOCIAL CONTRACT, further more a STUDENT'S PLEDGE
Jings will be very usefull to present short videos of how to do things that for sure will be a round of frequent questions from students ar even from peers. I made the following video to explain how it could be seeing
I had experimented dificults on upload activity so I decide to upload my Jing Exploration usin my wiki at: hbe4grade.pbwors.com
Review on de sidebar at Navigatoir the folder JING AND SKYPE...click on it and you could select the Jing presentetation...Hope you enjoy
Sharing information, images, and now video had never been so excited and so sipmple as it is today. and for sure will be easinr and more powerful in any moment from now.
Kids will review inimaginable support sources with out need us as a teachers, so the idea of teachers as facilitators is right here at the touch of the mouse or the use of a pc, or an Ipod...etc.
I like it
IS also an opportunity to share our lesson plans with peers, and or to model lesson within the district.
I like it, as well as the preious six tool...with this the horizont of being teachers as facilitators began to make sense and a reality
I want to share the related Wiki using the following url, hope you like it.
See you soon
