Teaching Digital Citizenship in the Elementary Classroom As elementary level teachers, we are charged not just with teaching academics, but teaching social skills as well. "Ignore bullies and tell an adult if you feel threatened," "Don't talk to strangers," "Treat people the way you want to be treated." You're probably familiar with phrases similar to these if you teach the younger grades. Young children are still learning the norms of social behavior and how to handle strangers. However, when was the last time you talked to your students about how to use good manners when leaving a comment on a blog post? These are the new social skills for our students. While we shouldn't stop teaching children how to say "please" and "thank you," and bullies still exist in the face-to-face world, it is vital that we treat online safety and digital citizenship with the same amount of seriousness and attention. Each year I spend at least a month reviewing digital citizenship and internet safety with all my classes. Lesson Resources Online Learning Tools

Five-Minute Film Festival: Teaching Digital Citizenship "Digital citizenship" is an umbrella term that covers a whole host of important issues. Broadly, it's the guidelines for responsible, appropriate behavior when one is using technology. But specifically, it can cover anything from "netiquette" to cyberbullying; technology access and the digital divide; online safety and privacy; copyright, plagiarism, and digital law, and more. In fact, some programs that teach digital citizenship have outlined no less than nine elements that intersect to inform a well-equipped digital citizen. It's an overwhelming array of skills to be taught and topics to explore. But while there is much talk about the importance of teaching digital citizenship in this information society, not many are sure what that really looks like.

How To Drag and Drop Images In Google Docs ‹ Edudemic Source One of the biggest benefits to using Microsoft Word instead of Google Docs has been the drag and drop interface. Simply plop an image file onto your Word .doc and, like magic, it usually appears ready to be tweaked and prodded. If you did that in Google Docs, well, you’d be outta luck. Until now. Google has just made it a lot easier to add images to your document with the expected ease of drag and drop. When writing a document, it often helps to augment text with images and diagrams. But sometimes the exact image you need is on your desktop and you just want to add it to your document quickly.
