DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

UNIT
Why should we care?
Warm-up:
 Who is Arthur Clarke?
 What movie(s) or books was he popular
for creating?
 What was it about his works that made
him so popular?
 (Students will google this info or use
wikipedia)
Live Blogging Activity

 Leaves a record of activity
 Allows others to interact with our
classroom conversation
 Compare to Twitter
A final message from Arthur
Clarke
Re-cap
 What did he say about Social Networking?
(Type it into the live chat)
 Someone want to volunteer a response
they read?
 What did he mean by “Technology tools
help us to gather and disseminate
information. But we also need qualities
like tolerance and compassion to
achieve greater understanding…”
A blogger says…
 Relating to Mr. Clarke’s message:
 Folks in education have been talking a lot
lately that it’s more than just about the
tools; it’s about critical thinking and
learning. Although Arthur Clarke wasn’t
really talking about education, per se,
it’s really all about education, and it’s
good to hear him say this three years
ago, now that we’re almost becoming
buried in Web 2.0 tools.
 Ref:

(accessed Jan. 2, 2010)
So why is this relevant?
 How can this relate to digital citizenship?
 These tools are just tools, but we always
have to remember the person on the
other side of the tool.
 Compassion, respect and other virtues
that relate to just being a good person is
what citizenship is all about. Digital
citizenship is just applying those rules
online and in the classroom while using
your computers.
Why do teachers bother us
when we are using OUR
technology?
 Do you see rules about internet usage
and texting at school bothersome? Are
we intruding on your space? Why do we
correct you when we find you on
youtube, firstclass email, searching the
web, streaming music on iTunes?
 Well, I may not have all the reasons why
we do it, but I’m going to try to make it
make sense to you.
 So first a look at where the world of
learning came from: Learning…then and
now.
Learning: Then and Now
 Look at these images and pick one that
stands out to you the most. Describe
what you think about that picture and
how you agree or disagree with how it
represents “then and now” of learning.

 Which one are you?

Appreciation
 The tools you have are greater than
anyone has ever had in the history of
being a student
 Engaging, dynamic and plentiful
 Use them wisely

SHOULD
 Citizenship: respect the learning time,
your teacher’s rules
