Workshop Grade Level: K-12
Do you know what type of digital footprint you are creating? Are your students aware of how their online actions affect themselves and others? We teach our children how to be good citizens and safe within the physical community, but what about norms for appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use? As educators, we must prepare students to live in a world without physical boundaries and help them learn how to work collaboratively with others, virtually or otherwise. During this full day workshop, we will explore the nine elements of Digital Citizenship: Access, Commerce, Communication, Literacy, Etiquette, Law, Rights & Responsibilities, Health & Wellness and Security, based on Mike Ribble’s book, Digital Citizenship in Schools. Come with your laptops and mobile devices, so we can practice safe, ethical behaviors together. Leave with ideas for Respecting, Educating, and Protecting yourself and others.
Come experience an introduction to computer coding and programming that will leave you thirsty for more! In this STEM-related workshop, coding is presenting using drag and drop programming in a hands-on, game-like constructivist atmosphere. You will have the opportunity to explore the basics of programming by completing a series of engaging tasks and puzzles that will develop skills needed to create interactive art, stories or simulations, your own game or perhaps an app!
