Digital Citizenship Kick Off!

This week 4th grade kicked off a unit on Digital Citizenship.  We also kicked off learning how to use Pear Deck!

That is one of my favorite things about my role - finding a new tool and using it when I teach.  Since technology isn't a "drop off" or prep for the teachers, they are co-teaching the class with me.  Modeling, as we well know, is one of the best ways to learn new things!


In this six week unit we are using a mash-up of Common Sense Media and Google with Pear Deck's Be Internet Awesome curriculum.  I love the Common Sense Media videos - they are engaging and catchy for the kids.  I also love the new Pear Deck curriculum because of the interactivity it utilizes.

Oh, I should probably specify - we are using lessons from the first unit, Share with Care, with the 4th grade.  I have plans to use other units with other grades as the year progresses.  These first two weeks are all about the Digital Footprint.  Hat tip to Epic for such great resources to supplement the lessons!
