Library Media Specialist Amy Ramer M.ED.

Our Library Lessons...

This rotation we learned about being good DIGITAL Citizens... This means that we use the technology in the Media Center responsibly. We explored a Nearpod presentation together. We learned how to travel safely on the internet and we compared how traveling safely in the real world is like traveling safely on the internet.

We learned three simple rules to keep in mind for good DIGITAL Citizenship.


1. Always ask a parent or teacher before you use the internet.

2. Only talk to and message people you know on the internet.

3. Stick to "just right" places for you on the internet.
