Words of Wisdom

No Joke

Everything is funny as long as it is happening to somebody else.
~ Will Rodgers

Sadly, in our society, much laughter is created at the expense of others, whether it is online, on television, on social networks, through emails or texts. Cyberspace reality has made it possible to tease, bully, and belittle others instantaneously and even anonymously. Start a dialog with your students about appropriate cyber-communications and which pitfalls to avoid. Encourage them to seek help for themselves or for someone else if something inappropriate is going on. And then start paying close attention to your own communications whether cyber or face-to-face. Make sure you aren't creating a laugh at someone else's expense and that the only person you are laughing at is yourself.

With something to think about . . .


School Tube is a website dedicated to the sharing of videos created by students and teachers. School Tube allows teachers and schools to create their own channels for sharing their students' works. School Tube also provides excellent how-to resources, copyright-friendly media, and lesson plans for using video in the classroom.

Happy Birthday!
