    If a store has classes for kids, are the "teachers" of the classes allowed to take pictures and post them on FB without written permission? The teachers are sales associates who handle the classes.
    Although it is nice to read everyone's opinions, I'm really looking for facts.
    Thank you!

    A new study has revealed that cyberbullying has a major impact on teachers, not just students, with 42% of teachers experiencing harassment by students on the web. Have you witnessed kids cyberbullying their teachers? Please share your stories with us.
    • Mr. Laffin - Fascinating, thanks for sharing!

    I don't know where to start! Some of the items I found on Common Sense Media seem a little too low for my 6-8th graders. Can someone suggest where to look for Cyber Bullying and/or Digital Footprint??

    Looking for some edmodo help! I'm doing an Action Research Project and am looking for any info on how to keep high school students engaged in the learning process. An emphasis on using technology is helpful also. Thanks!
    • Digital Citizenship - Hi Mr. Stulz! Keeping your curriculum fresh by incorporating new technologies is a great way to engage your high school students. Consider exploring AppFlows on Graphite to see how fellow educators integrate tech tools in their classroom. http://www.graphite.org/app-flows

    Earlier this week the programming bug, Heartbleed, was detected on the Internet that is leaving countless people vulnerable to data theft. This security glitch actually offers parents and their kids (and educators) an opportunity to share an important and timely "teachable" moment. Why not use Heartbleed as reason to talk to your kids about how and why to make safe and secure passwords in the first place? How have you taught password security in your classroom? Will you use Heartbleed as a teachable moment?

    TechSoup for Libraries held a webinar last week, Public Tech Instruction: Teaching the Public on Internet Safety, where attendees shared resources for teaching online safety and security. Using resources discussed at the webinar, TechSoup curated a collection of online safety resources, including assessments and quizzes, slide decks, and learning resources for adults and children. What resources do you use to promote online safety in your classroom?

    Sometimes it’s hard to tell how someone is really feeling when reading his/her text or email. If you use capital letters or bolded words people may misunderstand what someone else’s text or email meant. You never meant to upset the person and were trying to be positive, but it came out wrong :( View this lesson and post your experience with misunderstood posts :~)

    Facebook seems to be making a conscious effort in their privacy settings by having "Privacy Checkups" featuring a cartoon dinosaur. "A Facebook spokeswoman said the message is one of many experiments to keep people from errant posting. 'We frequently test new ways to help ensure people are sharing with who they want to on Facebook,' she wrote in an email." What do you think of Facebook's Privacy Checkups?

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any good software for students in years (grade) 5/6/7 to use to create their own graphic designs? We use Google Sketch-up for a while and I find it very powerful for students to use to get a professional looking design and was hoping to find something similar for 2D and 3D graphic designs. Thanks!
    • Plunkett - I have my students use 3Dtin.com as well, but you can't use it with internet explorer. It has to be used on firefox, safari, or chrome. Have fun! :)

      • Digital Citizenship - What a great and creative idea!

    • Digital Citizenship - Get excited, get creative, and get involved! This past fall, Common Sense Media debuted its first music video, Pause & Think Online, an animated song for kids to learn about digital citizenship. We love our colorful characters but think your students would be even better sharing the message - and we want to see them!

      Have students create a video, in which they sing, dance, act and/or animate their own characters. Submit your video by May 31st 12pm PST. For more information on course guidelines and resources check out the links below.

    A new initiative in Japan is trying to curb cyberbullying in youth by forcing some 13,000 elementary and junior high school students in the city of Kariya to hand over their cellphones to parents at 9pm each evening. What do you think of the initiative? Do you think it will work?
    • Mrs. Whybrow - Whether it will work or not, it is at least an attempt to try something, and it is fairly simple. That has to be good.

      • Mar 27, 2014
    • Mr. Rampley - Won't they just be able to use their computers ? This doesn't make any sense at all. Better to deal with the issue of bullying head on.

      • Lisa W - here's my website: http://lwenzel.weebly.com/c3.html My 2nd graders are currently doing group research on 1 of 3 topics: Be Kind Online, Strong Passwords and Personal Information. They will turn their research into a common craft type video during their next 2 technology classes.

      • Mr. Quattrone - Just thought I'd pass this information along for anyone using the Common Sense Media curriculum. This is an idea for the "Digital Pledge" module, or any module where students create an artifact:

        Digital Pledge Extension Activity:

        This year our 4th grade completed the "Digital Pledge" module. I created a fun extension exercise to integrate the lesson with technology skills (PowerPoint, iPad, Fotobabble, and QR). Each student created their Digital Pledge poster via PowerPoint. The PowerPoint posters were saved as .PNG files and uploaded

Each student created their Digital Pledge poster via PowerPoint. The PowerPoint posters were saved as .PNG files and uploaded to Fotobabble. Our students then generated QR codes for the their posters, which were cut out and placed in hidden spots in our library. Our students were then given iPads loaded with "QR Reader" to complete a scavenger hunt for their posters.

    This was a fun activity for students and it gave us a slick way to showcase their work to staff and parents. I can provide specific details if anyone would like to use this extension activity.

    Disney is under scrutiny for children's online privacy laws, specifically not obtaining parental consent from children under 13 prior to tracking and collecting personal information about them. What do you think of the allegations?
