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.

This was my first professional development course with Capella/Sophia and I loved it! The self-paced and adaptive nature of the course was very beneficial. I highly recommend to anyone needing clock hours of renewal credit or just learning for personal enjoyment.

Many of the links were not available for the tutorials. Please do not use the word firstly. It is not a word.

This course introduced me to COPPA and CIPA- neither of which I had ever been introduced to in my 31 years of teaching. For that alone it was worth taking this course!

really helpful even though my school has been a 1:1 device school for years. Learned a lot of the behind the scenes elements of internet use in our school that our administrators must have taken care of.
