Digital Learning Spotlight
This month’s Digital Learning Spotlight features Kristen Coady and Sam Rosen’s co-taught US History lesson on Pearl Harbor. As part of their exploration into the events that transpired on that historical day, students were tasked with creating live tweets from multiple perspectives of the day's events. Ms. Coady and Mr. Rosen explored numerous ways in which the students could create a “live Twitter-like feed” and decided what was most practical was to create a template that all students could access through a google slideshow. Students were able to share their “tweets” by copying the template provided and editing it to reflect a specific time and perspective. Hats off to Ms. Coady and Mr. Rosen for designing a learning experience that allows students to interact, engage and demonstrate their understanding using a creative digital approach. This activity could be modified for use at a variety of grade levels and in any content area.
Student Data Privacy
It is our shared responsibility to ensure that student data is protected when students use various apps and websites by verifying that the company has signed a Student Data Privacy Agreement (SDPA). When selecting apps and sites to use with students, please check the FPS Data Privacy Resource Registry for compliance. If the resource is not listed, please submit a request for approval. Some resources are listed as “not approved” or “vendor unresponsive”. This means that the company will not sign an SDPA and students must not sign in to use this resource.
Some websites such as Quizlet, Epic Books and Magistrula, are allowable for students to use as long as students do not sign in. If student use of the resource is approved without students signing in, the FPS Data Privacy Resource Registry will include this information.
