Digial Citizenship Intro


Published on

I used this presentation to introduce Digital Citizenship to my classes at the beginning of 2010. I tried to get them to see we are a global community as well as a community in our own classroom. A good citizen follows laws while a good digital citizen follows the rules of the internet (netiquette) as well as the classroom. This presentation is an ongoing document that I continuously edit and add to until I feel I have everything I need to teach my students to be responsible citizens using their computers. However, I wanted to share it now to help those of you who are looking for a starting point to teach this subject as well.

Digial Citizenship Intro

  1. 1. Digital Citizenship Unit<br />Why should we care?<br />
  2. 2. Warm-up:<br />Who is Arthur Clarke?<br />What movie(s) or books was he popular for creating?<br />What was it about his works that made him so popular?<br />(Students will google this info or use wikipedia)<br />
  3. 3. Live Blogging Activity<br />Explain how, why and the do’s and don’t’s<br />Leaves a record of activity<br />Allows others to interact with our classroom conversation<br />Compare to Twitter<br />
  4. 4. A final message from Arthur Clarke<br />
  5. 5. Re-cap<br />What did he say about Social Networking? (Type it into the live chat)<br />Someone want to volunteer a response they read?<br />What did he mean by “Technology tools help us to gather and disseminate information. But we also need qualities like tolerance and compassion to achieve greater understanding…”<br />
  6. 6. A blogger says…<br />Relating to Mr. Clarke’s message:<br />Folks in education have been talking a lot lately that it’s more than just about the tools; it’s about critical thinking and learning. Although Arthur Clarke wasn’t really talking about education, per se, it’s really all about education, and it’s good to hear him say this three years ago, now that we’re almost becoming buried in Web 2.0 tools.<br />Ref: http://www.drezac.com/2010/01/2010-another-year-of-complacency.html (accessed Jan. 2, 2010)<br />
  7. 7. So why is this relevant?<br />How can this relate to digital citizenship?<br />These tools are just tools, but we always have to remember the person on the other side of the tool. <br />Compassion, respect and other virtues that relate to just being a good person is what citizenship is all about. Digital citizenship is just applying those rules online and in the classroom while using your computers.<br />
  8. 8. Why do teachers bother us when we are using OUR technology?<br />Do you see rules about internet usage and texting at school bothersome? Are we intruding on your space? Why do we correct you when we find you on youtube, firstclass email, searching the web, streaming music on iTunes?<br />Well, I may not have all the reasons why we do it, but I’m going to try to make it make sense to you.<br />So first a look at where the world of learning came from: Learning…then and now.<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Learning: Then and Now<br />Look at these images and pick one that stands out to you the most.

  11. 11. Appreciation <br />The tools you have are greater than anyone has ever had in the history of being a student<br />Engaging, dynamic and plentiful<br />Use them wisely<br />Just because you CAN doesn’t mean you SHOULD<br />Citizenship: respect the learning time, your teacher’s rules<br />Now it’s time to work….<br />
  12. 12. Activity: Revising the AUP<br />Take the AUP, read it!<br />Circle the 5 rules you don’t agree with or that you think need to be re-worded.<br />Revise, re-word or change at least 2 rules that you circled. Give a reason why they were changed.<br />Daily Grade<br />Be ready to discuss further the rules you changed and let’s see which ones we can add to our class rules.<br />
  13. 13. Warm-up: I want your feedback…<br />Check your first class conference (it has your class period on the icon)<br />Click on the link that will take you to a form. <br />Read and answer all the items on the form.<br />DAILY GRADE—PARTICIPATION—THERE ARE NO RIGHT OR WRONG ANSWERS.<br />We will look at the data when everyone is done!<br />
  14. 14. Activity: Helping Others Understand the AUP<br />Choose one of the unacceptable uses for computers in school.<br />Use Comic Life,Word (drawing tools) or Glogsterto create a poster to hang in the school informing students of what they are not allowed to do. <br />Daily Grade<br />Include: Picture(s), the use prohibited, your name and class period<br />
