Digital Citizenship Certified School
There are several requirements in order to be a Certified School for Digital Citizenship. One of the requirements is to teach digital citizenship lessons to various grade levels. Lessons are broken into units and are grade level appropriate. All lessons are found in Common Sense Media website. We are required to teach a certain number of minutes but since all students need to be responsible netizens, we encourage all grade levels to teach and promote digital citizenship.
Ms. Silva, Ms. Endo, Ms. Taylor, Ms. Hogan, Mrs. McCarthy, and I are available to help. If you would like to learn more about how to find lessons for your grade level, please let me know or any of the teachers mentioned above. The lessons can be taught in class or during computer lab time. Please work with Ms. Hogan so she can better assist your needs.
If you already have chosen a unit and are ready to begin your lessons, please complete Schedule for Digital Citizenship Lessons.
Another requirement is to promote digital citizenship awareness to our parents. I have not begun my work with our parents yet. If you are interested in helping to create a partnership with our parents, please let me know.
Lastly, our next meeting is this Wednesday, 2:45 pm, in the Teacher's Office. If you would like to know more about it, please stop by. All are welcome.
Have you tried EdPuzzle? It's a great way to incorporate Youtube videos into your lessons. What's even great about it is you can create your own questions to check for listening skills.
GoNoodle is a great activity for brain breaks! On a rainy day or during extreme heat, GoNoodle is one way to get your kids moving!
Power My Learning
Our district has created a partnership with Power My Learning to provide support to 4th grade students and their parents from Rowland Elementary School. Unfortunately, it is not open to all grade levels and participation is only by invitation. Power my Learning will host a parent workshop to fourth grade students and parents on October 8, 2016. Rooms 42, 43, 44, 45, and 47, library, and the staff lounge will be used.
