With today's technology and wide-spread access, more and more teachers are using digital tools to engage their students.  This course explores issues of safety, security and etiquette.  First you will learn how to evaluate their lessons for digital safety so that you can safely plan and implement technology-enhanced lessons.  Next you will create your digital safety policies for students and parents. Using these new skills, you will then create a digital assignment that puts your learning into practice. 

During this course you will build 

  • An evaluation model to check your lessons for digital safety
  • Classroom digital safety policies 
  • A student assignment that contributes to a student's positive digital footprint.

Too many vaguely written questions and answers in the assessments. The instructors should consider the fact that these are online assessments with no instructor available to clarify and be more clear.

Having retired several years ago, I find that I am now working as a long term substitute. Technology has come a long way over the past 5 years and I have found that these courses help me stay up to date on how technology is and can be used in the classroom.
