About this learning opportunity

Technology is not going away it is everywhere. How are you preparing your students to deal with the things they encounter online?

Filtering, blocking and banning technology out of fear of the worst case scenarios does not work. When we filter, block or ban we are actually missing out on opportunities to help our students learn how to navigate their digitally filled worlds in safe and productive ways. Yes some of those negative examples are good to bring up, but it should not be our only focus. What about the positive examples of how people are using technology? These examples also need to be shared and modelled for our students.

In this session, you will learn practical ways to integrate the digital citizenship into everyday classroom practice. Lesson plans, resources and classroom examples will be shared.

This session addresses the TQS competency #3: Demonstrating a Professional Body of Knowledge

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
