Digital Citizenship & Data Collection

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

With all this use of technology and the notion that prospective employers and college admissions officers are researching applicants, students should learn how to be responsible digital citizens and consider the effects of their digital footprints. Students tracking their digital footprint could make for a horrifying or surprising project and very relevant in this world where social media puts one''s actions on full display.

Top 10 BYOD concerns — and how to overcome them [Part 1]

Neo LMS

BYOD at school is more than the latest buzz phrase you hear at every corner of the teacher’s rooms or along school hallways. More and more schools adopt BYOD policies and allow students to bring their own mobile phones, tablets, eBooks, and other devices in the classroom, and use them as tools to enhance learning. But failure BYOD stories exist as well, and they rarely hit the headlines as often. But this shouldn’t stop schools from giving BYOD at least a chance.

It requires creating a culture of digital citizenship that involves students, faculty, and parents -- a whole-community approach. I talked with Kelly Mendoza, senior director of learning and engagement for Common Sense Education, about digital citizenship, new resources available to professional development leaders in districts, and how educators can get started in their own school communities.

BYOD Begins With Trust and Respect

A Principal's Reflections

I have written extensively over the past couple of years about our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative at New Milford High School at the Huffington Post and on my own blog. It has been interesting to look back at all my blog posts to see how far we have come with BYOD at NMHS. It was during the summer that Ron Watson , the NM District IT Director, and I met to discuss the future of BYOD at NMHS. What do you think are the keys to a successful BYOD initiative?

Debunking 3 myths about BYOD in the classroom

Neo LMS

BYOD — Bring Your Own Device — has gained some momentum in today’s education system. From temp teachers to entire school districts, more and more educational staff debate about or seriously consider the adoption of BYOD in their instruction. Adopting BYOD in schools seems like a win-win situation. But as with all things belonging to the real world, that one Murphy’s law that says “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong” applies to BYOD as well.

Is Your Digital Citizenship Program Up to Snuff?

Leadership Lounge

Digital Citizenship Week is officially celebrated every October — but it’s never too late for school leaders to review and reflect on how educators are addressing digital citizenship. Since it was coined more than a decade ago, the meaning of the term "digital citizenship" has expanded. These skills are still important, but what constitutes good digital citizenship today encompasses a great deal more.

Addressing the most common parent concerns about BYOD in schools

Neo LMS

BYOD — Bring Your Own Device — has taken the education system by storm. There’s been a lot of talk about BYOD in schools, on whether or not it is beneficial for the learning process of students, with serious arguments in both camps. I for one believe BYOD at school is a clear case of the if you can’t fight it, embrace it mantra. A BYOD Acceptable Use Policy is meant to ensure safety for users and keep the use of mobile devices “in the name of learning”.

7 Skills Students Need for Today’s Classwork

Ask a Tech Teacher

You rarely see a lesson that doesn’t ask for online this or digital that. Students are expected to collaborate and share online as young as kindergarten when they read digital books or draw pictures using iPad apps.

The Edtech Revolution: 2010 – 2017

Securly

Given that many children were acquiring iPads for personal use, some schools adopted a Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD) Policy. In order to impart this knowledge to their students, teachers also had to go through digital literacy training. Now, many schools now provide digital training professional workshops to help teachers integrate online safety best practices in their everyday classrooms. In order to receive this funding, each district must submit a digital classroom plan.
