93% of our students are online. Our students are living in a world of texting, video chats and social networks but many teachers have not become digital ciitzens. Without an understanding of the digital world our students are living we can not be role models and help them to understand both the promises and pitfalls of their media lives.
Students are often tech savvy but they are not necessarily smart about their use of technology. Let’s discuss our role in becoming part of the digital world and helping our students to think critically. The Common Sense Media curriculum will be highlighted as well as ideas to bring it into your school or district.
This webinar will be offered twice, once at 3:15pm, and once at 7:15pm. Please visit the Webcasts Page for pre-registration and additional information about participating in our webinars.
