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?

Do you know what type of digital footprint you are creating? Anyone using the web or a mobile device leaves a digital footprint. 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? Because of AUPs and guidelines for Best Practices, school leaders are faced with creating policies that students can follow and teachers can support. As educators, we must prepare students to live in a world without physical boundaries and help them learn how to work with others, virtually or otherwise.
Each year, Digital Citizenship – It’s Common Sense is a popular selection amongst our offerings. In this workshop today and tomorrow, lead by Linda Dougherty, participants will explore the nine elements of Digital Citizenship: Access, Commerce, Communication, Literacy, Etiquette, Law, Rights & Responsibilities, Health & Wellness, and Security.
…well, almost. This week and next we have a handful of international programs taking place-St. Louis area students connecting experts and students in the United Kingdom and Egypt, respectively, over videoconference.
Lafayette High students are participating in Assertiveness Through Communication and Movement with Touch the Sky, Ltd. We’re really working forward to that v/c- it happens tomorrow. This is our first v/c with Touch the Sky!
Sperreng Middle, Wydown Middle and Parkway North are participating PULSE: The Arab World and the U.S. on different days. Sperreng participated in the Cultural Overview on the 4th; Wydown will do Religions of the Book on the 10th; Parkway North is doing Culture and Conflict on the 11th. Due to the high demand of this particular series, GNG had to limit how many times a school could participate! St. Louis schools always sign up for GNG programs- and quickly- so I imagine others across the country feel the same way.
Of course, the time differences have to be coordinated, but the connection details are all the same. This year and last we’ve really had a lot of international programs- it’s exciting!
