Digital Citizenship Using Visual Metaphors While Digital Citizenship Week has come and gone it's important to keep the conversations going. If you missed Digital Citizenship week it's never too late to get started. Here's a practical hands on tool kit shared on Craig Bandura's blog he calls The Digital Citizenship Survival Kit. It's an excellent way to use physical prompts and metaphorical thinking to help kids understand how to behave ethically online. While Craig uses this kit with students in kindergarten through Grade 8 it'll work well with students of any age. I've included Craig's original list of items and a few other suggested by people who commented on his blog. The Digital Citizenship Survival Kit Padlock: Padlocks are used to secure the stuff kids keep in their lockers. Toothbrush: In the same way you wouldn't share your toothbrush with someone else, don't share your passwords. Permanent Marker: Remember that what you "write" online stays online. Bar of Soap: Try to keep it "clean" online.

But with the likes of Robert Nay—who created one of the most downloaded iPad apps of 2011 when he was just 14—and even Justin Bieber—who began his international superstardom as a YouTube sensation—as inspiration, students and teachers alike should know the positives that posting to the Internet can offer. This was the message Steve Johnson, a technology skills teacher, parent, and author of two education books, shared during his Saturday session, "Digital Footprints: Your Students' New First Impression." "The main idea we get from surveying teachers [about students posting online] is there [are] a lot of negative connotations," Johnson said, as he aimed to reverse these negative perceptions and encourage educators to promote student-produced online content in their classrooms. "They are going to make mistakes," he said.

U.S. consumers responded by making the selfie stick the gift of the year in 2014. Around the U.S. this holiday season, camera shops, department stores and pharmacies have been having a hard time keeping up with demand for the selfie stick, a retractable pole that people clamp onto their smartphones to take better pictures of themselves. Nordstrom Inc. (JWN), which carried the Selfie On A Stick model in 118 stores starting in late November, said it had to reorder the item twice before Christmas and is currently sold out. ProMaster, which supplies camera accessories to 500 U.S. stores, said it had to keep re-ordering selfie sticks after running out of stock. “We basically couldn’t keep them in stock,” said Jirair Christianian, owner of Mike’s Camera, a 12-store chain based in Boulder, Colorado. The Promaster Selfie Stick, by Promaster Products in Fairfield, Connecticut, was among the hot-selling holiday gifts this year. Close
