iMessage and Facetime Have Been Disabled For Students!
This Should Help With Some Discipline Issues.
Some of the students are using expletives in their iMessage texts and emails. If you see students using foul language in their exchanges to each other, it is a discipline issue. Don't ignore it or it will never get any better. Handle it the same way you would if you found them passing notes with the same content: document, call parents, ASD, etc...
Digital Ethics Module Training
These are the directions from the PD. If you have forgotten how to do things in open class, this should answer most of your questions.
Dim Student Computer Screens
The students are keeping their screens dim to "save" the battery. Playing games and scrolling wallpaper is what is draining their batteries. Tell them to turn their brightness back up because it is harder to see what they are doing when the screens are dim. They need to change their desktop wallpaper to one picture. Please let me know if you have any questions.
