Digital Citizenship: A Parent Perspective

Within the context of  Connected Educator’s  month, October 21-25 is digital citizenship week. After recording an earlier Google Hangout session on the topic of  Digital Citizenship  with staff, I thought it would be interesting to record a second hangout to gain a parent perspective on this topic.

Earlier today, I was joined by  Susan Parr, a parent from our school board community and  Chris Vollum, a social media consultant and parent to share some conversation on this topic.  If the notions of  online safety, openness, academic honesty, integrity and social success capture your interest, then this conversation is for you.

Many thanks to Susan and Chris for sharing their time and interest in supporting this important topic.  Until next time …

Connecting Students with Google Hangouts

After 2 days of being immersed in conversation about technology enabled learning, focusing on using technology to get to deeper learning, and engage the relationship aspect of the possibilities with George Couros, I was thrilled to hear how WRDSB  teacher Ryan Wettlaufer is using Google Hangouts with his students.

To me, this is a perfect example of the SAMR model.  Ryan has thoughtfully and skillfully created real life opportunities for his students by leveraging his personal learning network (PLN) giving his French language program a whole new meaning.  I was able to connect with Ryan for an interview via Google Hangouts.  Learn about Ryan’s insights in our interview.

Thank you Ryan for taking time to share your leadership and best practices, and a perfect topic for Connected Educators month.

Digital Citizenship discussion ‘on air’

Tonight I had the chance to connect with 3 co-workers to try a Google Hangout on Air live session.  Our topic of choice was digital citizenship. Check out our introductory conversation.

While we planned some questions to keep us focused, the discussion was free flow and from the heart.  I hope this is the first of many recorded discussions on this important topic.  Special thanks to Heidi Hobson,  Susan Watt  and  Jeff Brown.
