Facebook<br />Facebook is the world’s largest social network. Facebook helps connect people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. People use facebook to keep up with friends, upload photos, share links and videos and learn more about the people they know. <br />
Digital Citizenship<br />Digital Citizenship is a way to teach people how to use technology responsibly and properly. There are nine elements to Digital Citizenship. Digital Etiquette- electronic standards of conduct or procedure. Digital Communication- electronic exchange of information. Digital Literacy- process of teaching and learning about technology and the use of technology. Digital Access- full electronic participation in society. Digital Commerce- electronic buying and selling of goods. Digital Law- electronic responsibility for actions and deeds. Digital Rights and Responsibilities- those freedoms extended to everyone in a digital world. Digital Health and Wellness- physical and psychological well-being in a digital technology world. Digital Security- electronic precautions to guarantee safety.<br />
Digital Citizenship<br />I use safe social networks to communicate with others and do it in an appropriate way. <br />I will use Digital Commerce safely and legally by only buying goods that are legal and not going overboard of buying goods.<br />I do not steal or damage other people’s work, identity or property online.<br />I do not hack into people’s information, plagiarize or create destructive worms or viruses. <br />I will stop downloading illegal music.<br />
Perfect Classroom Environment<br />A perfect classroom environment where technology is used a lot for learning looks like everyone sitting quietly at their computers working on their assignment. The teacher is sitting at his/her desk working as well or walking around the room making sure everyone is doing what they are suppose to and answering any questions someone may have. There are no students checking emails, communicating with others, playing games or watching videos. Students are able to use iPod's to listen to and cell phones are aloud out. With cell phone’s students have to be responsible with them and not on them at all times. <br />
The Dark Side<br />Three problems with everyone in a classroom having a laptop or other digital learning device are:<br />- The students could be checking their email, facebook, twitter and all their other chat services. <br />-Students could be watching videos and playing games instead of doing their work. <br />-There’s a possibility that students could be communicating through their laptops giving information about an assignment or even sharing the assignment. <br />
Solutions<br />The solutions that I can think for each three of my problems would be to block all email, chat services, videos and games so students can’t get onto them. Another solution would be to do daily or weekly checks on the laptops to make sure that the students are not sharing assignments and cheating. <br />
