All websites discussed will be housed on a Google site for further reflection. JULY 28.
• Google Goods that Meet the Standards: So your school has “gone Google” and left you behind? NO WORRIES!

This Thursday and Friday, July 17 & 18, join us for Digital Citizenship: It’s Common Sense. Do you know what type of digital footprint you are creating? We teach our children how to be safe within the physical community, but what about norms for appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use? This class is based on the material in Digital Citizenship in Schools, an ISTE 2011 bestseller. We’ll explore the nine elements of Digital Citizenship: Access, Commerce, Communication, Literacy, Etiquette, Law, Rights & Responsibilities, Health & Wellness, and Security. Seats are still open, register at www.edplus.org today, and we will see you later this week! Cost: $279 members; $349 non-members; two graduate credits available.
Students are surrounded by visual images all day long: TV, streaming, apps… Examine how technology has changed the creation of visual images in news & ads and discuss what that effect has been on our students. Learn how to help students decipher the messages implicit in visual images while developing lessons that align to the standards.
Join us in Teaching New Literacies to Meet the Standards on Tuesday, July 22. Register online at www.edplus.org.
Do you know what type of digital footprint you are creating? Anyone using the web or a mobile device leaves a digital footprint. Because of AUPs and best practices guidelines, school leaders are faced with creating policies that students can follow & teachers can support. We teach our children how to be safe within the physical community, but what about norms for appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use? Learn how July 17-18; click on the image for more info.
