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.

Teaching today requires us as teachers to stay up-to-date and in-the-know of the latest technologies. This also means we have to stay informed of the new laws and responsibilities as well. Great course!

There was quite a bit of information - I wish I would have done it with a group of teachers so we could have a discussion as we go through.
