  • This presentation is to help teachers in teaching students how to appropriately and responsibly use technological devices. BECAUSE OF THE ANIMATIONS SOME SCREENS WILL REQUIRE THAT YOU CLICK A SECOND TIME. If the slide does not change just click again.Thank you.
  • The use of technology in our schools today have many advantages and there is much that you, the students, must be taught in order for you to use new technology correctly and to keep yourself safe. Today we are going to discuss six areas that as teachers it is our responsibility to teach and enforce in our classroom so that you will be good technology citizens.
  • First and foremost you need to know some basic computer safety guidelines.
  • You are responsible for the care and condition of devices. Place devices carefully and securely on surfaces. Handle them carefully. Do not be “playing around”, “tossing” or in other ways endangering the devices. Be aware of cords and cables. They can be stepped on, tripped on and cause devices or students to be damaged. Keep devices clean. Be careful with food and especially drink around them. Wipe them and remove dirt and smudges regularly.Respect software and programs. Never open attachments you are not expecting. This is one of the ways that viruses and worms attach your devices. Never download programs, apps or other software without the permission of your instructor. Keep an updated virus protection plan on your computers and run scans regularly. If you are surfing the internet a lot then run your security scans daily.
  • Passwords are your security that other people will not alter or delete your files. It is your responsibility to maintain a strong password, change it regularly and not share it with other students. You all know what happens when you tell your best friend your locker combination. Soon everyone in your group knows your combination and finally someone outside your group finds out and things begin to disappear from your locker. This same scenario happens when you share your password. Your teacher will need your password and your parents but no one else is to have your password.
  • Your school has an “Acceptable Use Policy”. This is your manual of guidelines of what is acceptable and unacceptable while using your technological devices. Your are responsible to know what is in the policy and to follow the rules. If you do not follow the rules one of the consequences is that you will not be allowed to use technology and will have to do your assignments with an encyclopedia and paper and pencil. Think about that. Will it be worth it to have this opportunity to work on your assignments with computers, tablets, cell phones, video cameras, etc. taken from you because you do not follow the rules? You are being given the chance to show us that you are responsible enough to have these devices in your hands at school to be used for education. Your parents must sign a Parental Permission Form before you are allowed to use any device. This form will be kept and if there is a violation it will be referred to when consequences are assigned. All school files, e-mail accounts, log-ins, and any other technological areas may be viewed by school authorities and law enforcement officials. They are all school property and thus open to school inspection at any time.Now only a few reminders of main points in the Acceptable Use Policy. Never access pornographic, obscene or explicit material. Do not vandalize property of another person. This includes going in and deleting or altering their files. Never download or exchange pirated software. “Pirated” means software that has been copied illegally, usually because someone did not pay for it. Do not accept a copy of a great game or other material that you know should be paid for. Do not violate the law on the internet. It has the same serious consequences as when you do them off the internet. Threats, lies, exaggerations, distasteful jokes, slander are unacceptable and will incur consequences.
  • Social networking refers to your online activities and more specifically communications with other people. Some of these include e-mails, Facebook, Twitter, texts, cell phone conversations, websites, and communications with other internet sites.
  • When a student is communicating with other people through technological devices they are expected to show maturity and keep their communications, language and words professional at all times. Never give out your social security number, telephone number, e-mail address, mailing address or other personal information. Know what a secure site is. If the address begins with “https” it is usually secure. Watch for a “http” for that is not secure. Students need to understand that business and organizations want your information in order to market products to you. They are not trying to be your friend. They are trying to sell you something or get you to do something. That is not why we are using these devices in the classroom and you need to learn how to communicate appropriately with them so that when you are not at school you can still handle these situations.
  • On the internet you are swimming with everyone. There are good fish and bad fish. You must protect yourself from people who are trying to harm you by getting your information or using inappropriate language or illegal materials. (CLICK) There are sites that will use colorful language or racial slurs or offensive pictures. You must report any site that makes you feel uncomfortable or any text or conversation that is not what your were expecting. The internet is your responsibility but your teachers are here to help and guide. Report anything strange. Your teacher will check it out. The internet is your world of information and entertainment. Make it safe for yourself and others. Swim safely in the world of the Internet.
  • Ethics is often misunderstood and requires a person to develop their own sense of honor. Are you a person of honesty and integrity? Are you a person others can trust? Do you do you say what you will do and do what you say? Who are you? Who you are is defined in your actions and make up your character. When we talk about ethical use of Internet material we are talking about how you use videos, music and printed material.
  • Let’s define “ethics”. Ethics is the branch of philosophy that deals with moral judgments, issues of right and wrong, and determining what behaviors are humane or inhumane. “Ethical Action” is an action that does not have a damaging impact on oneself, other individuals, or society. Let’s stop for a minute. What words up here would you like to talk about or have a better definition? (At this time have a discussion with students clearing up any misconceptions and clarifying what is meant by ethics before going to the next slide.)
  • D. Johnson in his book,The classroom teacher’s technology survival guide, outlines “Three Rules of Technology Ethics”. These three rules cover First privacy: I will protect my privacy and respect the privacy of others. Second, Property: I will protect my property and respect the property of others.Third: Appropriate use – I will use technology in constructive ways and in ways that do not break the rules of my family, faith, school, or government.The important words here are “protect”, “respect” and “not break the rules”.
  • Students need to use the same rules in cyberspace that you use in the real world. Do not steal or destroy materials or information. Do not change pictures in order to make fun of someone or spread gossip or lies. These kinds of activities will harm your reputation and your creditability. Do not look at or create materials that are offensive, pornographic or lacking in educational value. You are using technology to learn and do your assignments. You are not using it to entertain or make fun of people or look at inappropriate material.You may also be exposed to literature written by groups that are racist, hateful or extremists. You need to report these propaganda materials to your teacher and they may become an opportunity for your class to discuss this type of material.
  • All this talk of ethics, right and wrong, respect and protect can be narrowed to one simple question. Ask yourself this each time you use technology: Does my use of technology violate the privacy of others, or am I giving information that I should not?
  • Copyright laws and guidelines are written to protect computer software. People who spend the time creating something have copyrighted their materials and a person cannot use their creations without paying for them or receiving permission to use them. When you pay for software, such as programs or games, you are only paying to use the software – Not to change it or copy it for someone else. We talked about pirating earlier. Pirating is copying material that is copyrighted without the owner’s permission and selling it or giving it to another person. It is stealing. It is illegal. If has the same punishments under the law as if you had broken into someone house and stole some money. How much is your good name worth? $20, $50 or $100. I hope it is worth thousands of dollars. Once you cheat and lose your good name it does not matter is you get caught or not. It matters that you sold your good name for a few dollars. It is not worth breaking the law for the savings of some money instead of legally paying for it.
  • There are copyright guidelines for including work that was prepared or created by other people. This guidelines are written to ensure that only a small portion of original material is used and that the commercial value of what you are using is not diminished. (Teachers may want to stop at this point and discuss how using the whole song or copying it for a friend would “diminish the commercial value”). The guidelines help you, the student, to create a work that is mostly yours and not just a collection of copied material. Also, your new work is for your benefit and it is not for commercial gain. If you plan on using what you have created to make money then you must get written permission in order to use the material you are copying. Also, your new work must be a critique, a satire or for educational purposes.
  • You can use up to 1000 words of books and magazines but not more than 10%, poems up to 250 words or if the poem is less than that then you may use the complete poem. You may use up to 5 pictures or drawing from the same person. A video can only be a total of 3 minutes and not more than 10% of the video. Music is the same. Only 30 seconds and you cannot change the music in any way. Also, you should have a “Fair use” statement at the beginning of presentation and always, always, always you need a bibliography correctly citing all of your sources.
  • Copyright laws and guidelines are written to protect computer software. People who spend the time creating something have copyrighted their materials and a person cannot use their creations without paying for them or receiving permission to use them. When you pay for software, such as programs or games, you are only paying to use the software – Not to change it or copy it for someone else. We talked about pirating earlier. Pirating is copying material that is copyrighted without the owner’s permission and selling it or giving it to another person. It is stealing. It is illegal.

Once you cheat and lose your good name it does not matter is you get caught or not. It matters that you sold your good name for a few dollars. It is not worth breaking the law for the savings of some money instead of legally paying for it.
  • Plagiarism is another form of stealing. Plagiarism is when people use an author’s language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions and claims it as their own work. It can be accidental or intentional. There are several ways that you can commit plagiarism. It can be accidental because you are not careful with your work or it can be intentional, which means you do it on purpose. When you copy someone else’s work and claim it as your own you have stolen their work. When you take someone else’s idea and do not give a citation telling where you found the material about the idea then you have stolen their idea. When you write something that is almost the same as what is written somewhere or copy and past and do not give a citation then you have committed plagiarism. If you purchase an essay or other material off the Internet or use another student’s work and claim it as your own you have broken the law. Think about it. Suppose you came up with a really great recipe or a way to make a gocart go faster. You probably did a some research, baked or built a lot, tried different ideas, eliminated things that did not work, tried other things and finally found the right combination. Then you put it on the internet so that you could either sell it or just share it with others. Then someone comes along and takes your idea and puts it in a cookbook or engineering magazine and becomes famous for the idea and makes a lot of money. Do you see how that person has stolen from you? Plagiarism counts for even the smallest ideas. When people come up with books and thoughts and different ways to look at things that is their idea and when you use it in your work you must write a citation and give them credit for what they have done.
  • With better technology enforcement of the rules is also becoming easier. Teachers and associates have learned how to check for plagiarism. By showing you a few of the ways they become aware the plagiarism might be happening you will know if you are crossing the line into deception. Some of the clues include changes in writing style, unusual word choice, changes in the font, and the writing is above or below what is the level of the class or the paper does not really address the topic. Teachers also keep samples of in-class writing to compare. Teachers will check the list of works cited to see if they are real, they may ask for students to turn in copies of the works they have cited, they may ask students to write summaries in class about their papers. Teachers may notice that the references have old dates cluing that the paper was not written recently. There are also internet resources called Boolean searches that will search papers for the teachers and report back after checking on all the cites and other clues that show a paper is not the student’s own composition. So, be careful. If you are in doubt as to how to use information, check with your teacher. Ask questions and learn the proper way to cite.
  • Citations are very important. Often people leave them out because it seems hard to write them correctly. You need to learn how and when to use citations. There are many Internet sites that will tell you how to write a citation and some will even do it for you when you put in the information. There is no reason not to be able to cite what you find on the Internet correctly. You will learn to use the APA form with the aide of your teacher. It is one of the most common forms and it is easy to find sites to help you on the Internet. The citation is a little different for each type of resource such as websites, articles, movies, videos, TV/radio broadcasts, pictures, clipart, sound clips, etc. You need to know how you should cite in text and on your reference or bibliography page at the end of your paper.
  • The use of technology in our schools has had a lot of controversy as to whether we should allow students to use them in the classroom. In order to keep these resources available for you to use it will require that you learn and practice the proper and legal use of the Internet and other devices. As you begin to learn and work in the classroom the responsible thing to do is ask you teacher whenever you are not sure and report anything that does not look appropriate. With your help we will be able to keep the technology we have and add more in the future to make your learning more fun and exciting.
