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.

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?

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”.

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.

Partnering Tech Integration with Digital Citizenship

Graphite Blog

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. How can we support educators in teaching digital citizenship?

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. There are plenty of concerns about implementing BYOD in the classroom, which makes many educators unwilling to plunge in this still new pool.

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. Accomplishing this so it serves educational goals isn’t as much about knowing how to use the tools as constructing knowledge in an organic, scalable way. Digital Citizenship. Basics for a digital device.

Every Schools' Obligation

A Principal's Reflections

We routinely hear how students use digital tools inappropriately for sexting, cyberbullying, cheating, video recording teachers and fights with peers, and plagiarizing. Unfortunately, these behaviors materialize as schools are not doing their part to educate students on digital responsibility, citizenship, and creating a positive footprint online. It is the responsibility of schools to educate all learners regardless of age on these important topics.

On December 1st, 2012, educators from NJ and surrounding areas congregated at Linwood Middle School in North Brunswick for EdcampNJ''s free day of professional development. I use a mix of devices with some days in the class being BYOD and others using the school''s computers and netbooks (as available). I also use QR Codes, Socrative and InfuseLearning for other BYOD activities, and Today''s Meet for backchanneling.

Students would create a digital portfolio of crime scene photographs, videos of witness'' testimonies, and/or scenes from the mock trial.

Extending Classroom Discussions with Technology

Dr. Shannon Doak

As educators, we all know that discussions are an integral part of a learning environment. This is where I believe technology facilitated discussions can be used by educators to take the discussions happening in the classroom further. Another bonus to using online platforms to facilitate discussion is that using these tools provide students the opportunity to practice lifelong digital citizenship skills.

It is Time For Schools to Seriously Consider BYOT

A Principal's Reflections

Image credit: [link] As society continues to move forward in terms of innovation, technology, and global connectivity, schools are being stymied by relentless cuts to education. This has resulted in the reduction of staff, larger class sizes, lack of follow through to repair aging buildings, and the inability to keep up with purchasing and replacing educational technology. The world of education is often defined by the “haves” and “have nots”.

Virtual Reality in the Classroom: It’s Easy to Get Started

As an educator, you probably look at those devices and wonder if you need a degree in computer science to figure out how to use them, let alone how to incorporate the tech into your classroom.
