Digital Survival Addressing digital citizenship with the “Digital Citizenship Survival Kit”. GUEST COLUMN | by Craig Badura It’s a simple little prop I use when teaching Digital Citizenship to our pK-12 Aurora Huskies students, but I think it sends a powerful message. I love utilizing props to try to get my point across to students and thought that creating a kit full of props would be a great way to reinforce a very important topic in our schools. Let me introduce you to Mr. Digital Survival
When online speech causes in-school problems... When online speech causes in-school problems... Online speech that causes in-school problems leaves school officials feeling as if their hands are tied. While schools have to take action to prevent bullying, they must also tread carefully to avoid violating students’ speech rights.

A Must Have Poster about 21st Century Learning Skills I have just finished working on a graphic that I have made specifically for readers of Educational Technology and Mobile Learning ( of course anyone else is allowed to use it ). I am not the kind of guy to ask for favors in return for freebies I publish here. I honestly hate it and I have seen this practice in different blogs and websites. They tell you you can for instance download a certain PDF or eBook for free provided you register with them using your email or to like them on Facebook..etc. I would understand it from bloggers outside the educational arena but I can not swallow it when I see someone claiming to be an educator committed to the cause of education and yet providing such kind of services.

Twitter, without a doubt, has become the social network for educators to take their professional development into their own hands. Twitter allows teachers to connect with other educators from around the world, join discussions related to their interests and have a steady stream of resources (to help them teach and learn) available to them whenever, whereever and however. Creating a network on Twitter has catapulted educators to be part of a connected world where learning happens anytime, help is only a tweet away, collaboration partners meet and communicate, conversations that directly or indirectly impact their physical lives take place 24/7. Twitter is helping educators gain many 21st century skills and literacies which could easily transfer to their classrooms. So the next question is…

Should teachers expect privacy regarding their cell phones? Not in this case, a New Jersey appeals court ruled in a claim involving a sex crime. An ex-student went to police to report middle-school teacher Patrick DeFranco had committed sex acts with him when DeFranco was his teacher. To back up his claim, the former student agreed to phone DeFranco and let police listen in on the call.

8 TED Talks You Need to Share with Your Students Using multimedia in the classroom has become imperative in the 21st century classroom.

TED ( Technology, Entertainment, Design ) is one of my favorite video resource I use quite often.
Teaching Young Students to use Technology Responsibly We need to prepare our students to act responsibly when the moment of stupidity arrives.We should not just hand students technology and expect them to use it responsibly. They are kids after all. Here is a fictitious story to show my point: imagine three fifth grade students check out a Flip video camera to work on a class project during lunch recess. They want to show the principle of an arc by showing a student swinging on a swing.
