What is a global digital citizen?<br /> Our journey in teaching and learning.<br />Kuranui School <br />
What is a digital citizen?<br />We videoed some of the ideas about what it means to be a digital citizen……..<br />Click for link<br />
What does being digital mean?<br /> We needed to find<br /> out what digital citizens use ……<br /> so we started by looking for things that were digital.<br /> We created our very own digi kids ….<br />
A Digital citizen is ……….<br />a person who uses digital technology to communicate or interact(play with, talk to, explore with,write to or message with) another person or group of people all around the world.<br /> Room 3 Kuranui School <br />
KWHL<br />We used a graphic organizer called a KWHL to track our thinking and learning.<br /> Some of us were beginning to use these so we contributed our thinking in a group. Many of the older children helped us to record our thoughts about what we already knew, the questions we had about being a successful global citizen and how we might discover what we needed to know. <br />
We asked an expert for help!<br /> We asked Constable Louise Samuel of the NZ Police to visit our school and tell us about being safe on the Internet and using mobile phones.Her messages were very clear and she answered our questions. After her first visit we had more questions so she came back….. Thank you Constable Louise!<br />
Questions, questions, questions?<br />We had so many questions to answer so we called on experts within our school and the community.<br />Ms Daniels answered some of the ones about banking and money transfers while Constable Samuels helped us with setting some rules for using the internet.<br />
What did Bryan and Bobby tell us about using the internet? <br /><ul><li>Don’t tell anyone where you live, your phone or your school.
Use a computer in a family room near an adult who can help.
Never meet anyone you meet on the internet, know people in person before chatting with them on line.
Turn off your phone if you receive bad text messages or calls - never reply to them and ask an adult to help.
Talk to an adult if you don’t like what you see on the computer, hit Hector the Protector button and ask an adult to help.
Hector the Protector is free and downloadable from Hectors World.
Photos, images and personal information shared on a computer or phone are forever, they never disappear even if you delete them. THINK before you use these.
Make your page private for friends or family only.</li></li></ul><li>Room 1 and Room 3 Rules for using online messaging tools. <br /> Our children wanted to find out more about Hector the Protector so our next stop in learning was Hectors World. <br />
Hectors World <br />http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/5_7/hectorsworld/<br />
So,what did we learn from Hectors World?<br />The main messages we took were<br /><ul><li>Choose the people you trust based on their actions and knowledge of them over a long period of time.
Never share personal information- phone numbers, addresses,age, full name, school or photos on the internet without permission from trusted adult.
Use strong passwords to protect information stored on computers,cell phones and other digital technology.
Cyber-bullying is wrong and hurtful, you can be prosecuted by the police for it.
Never leave your computer unattended while you are logged on under your name.
Ask or tell an adult as soon as things happen that you don’t like or are hurtful.
Help others to be safe on the internet- seek help for them if they cannot do it for themselves.</li></li></ul><li>What is a digital footprint?<br />We didn’t know what a digital footprint was so Mrs Jones took us to the sandpit and we walked in the sand. We could see our footprints in the sand. She reminded us that when we walk at the beach on the sand the tide comes in and washes them away however whenever we use some digital technologies we leave footprints of where we have been , these are called Digital Footprints.<br />
Sharing our learning <br /> To complete our inquiry into Digital Citizenship we shared our learning at home with our parents, on the classroom blogs and more importantly we invited parents to come into school and see evidence of our practise.<br />
Bringing our knowledge into our school community <br />
So are we successful digital citizens?<br />Click for link<br /> If we practice what we have learnt and remember how to keep ourselves safe on<br /> the internet then we have remembered it.<br /> If we teach others what we now know then we are using it.<br /> If we are doing both then we have learnt it. <br />WHICH ONE ARE YOU?<br />
