Internet in Schools Summary <ul><li>In this article it states that the internet is important for students. It also says that schools are a common place for teens to get online. It has researched students on their internet use and where they use it (and on the next slide I has the stats). In the articles it also talks about the agreement that the internet is useful in school but, are our kids using it for unrelated school activities (myspace, cheating) more then more school work. </li></ul><ul><li>I found out that 37% of students believe that their peers use the internet to cheat in school. </li></ul>BORING! Take me BACK! MORE ON THIS OR

What I think <ul><li>I think that with any technology you have to take the good with the bad. I do believe that because of the internet students are cheating more and getting away with it more. I do know that internet in schools in a must (especially in college). I think that the statistics that Pew Internet Survey gave the article were very accurate and I am happy to see that so many more students are being able to get online and use the internet. I also thought it was good that 1 and 5 students said that the main place they use the internet at school. To me that mains that schools are doing the right thing and spending their money on computers and that students are learning to use the computer at young ages. When children start using the computer and understanding it, it makes me think that they are going to do better in life and in their career because they have internet and computer skills. </li></ul>READ ANOTHER

How I feel <ul><li>I love this article, I think that every teacher should do this. The internet is a powerful thing and it needs to be used correctly ESPECIALLY around children. I agree with everything in this article and I think that I will implement this in my classroom whenever I get to be a teacher. I really like how Abbi Perets (the author) made this into lessons and she has a class you can sign up for so she can go more in-depth with you to help you be the best you can be. </li></ul>GO STRAIGHT TO THE LAST ARTICLE GO TO THE MAIN PAGE OR
Student who used the Internet site inappropriately <ul><li>This is a news article that happened in a small town of Livingston. The Howell school district took action against student who used the Internet site inappropriately. A student in Howell put on his facebook page the quote “Rebel and Proud” which is a racist quote according to this newspaper. The school official said that if they find anymore students who violated our ‘acceptable use police and code of conduct they will be disciplined the same as the other boy. </li></ul>NO MORE, GO TO Conclusion page MORE about The STUDENT OR
More <ul><li>The student is not in danger of expulsion at this time but, the investigation is pending at this time. The article also said that they want parents to be aware of, and monitor, their children’s Internet usage. The school wants the cite of Howell to get involved. The school is taking many steps to address the issue. They are getting 30 members of the diversity club to go to a meeting to discuss this issue. </li></ul>MY VIEW on THIS CONCLUSION PAGE OR
MY VIEW <ul><li>I am glad that the Howell School district is taking action to this but, I do not think that “Rebel and Proud” is that racism, maybe I am not understanding something about that but, I do not think they had to take more discipline then just telling the student to take it off of his facebook. The student did not put that quote on his facebook at school, he did it at his house, and the last time I checked you can not access facebook in school. The school blocks that site I am pretty sure. The reason the school got involved seems a little fishy to me but, I am glad that they are being active in protecting any students right to not be discriminated . </li></ul>CONCLUSION PAGE
CONCLUSION <ul><li>After looking at all 3 of these articles I have decided that internet is very important when it comes to doing good in the classroom. I would like to see more teachers taking opportunity of learning more about how we can protect the students from getting on bad websites that can in danger them. The Howell story is all to common and if we take a look at what the students are doing they will be less likely to do that sort of thing. </li></ul>Works Cited
