Digital Responsibility

  • The Basics of Open Technology, by Ira Socol (2015)

    From abundant tools and smart budgeting to accessibility and trust, the Albemarle County Public Schools maintain a district-wide tech program that leverages digital literacy for all students.

  • Five-Minute Film Festival: Are We Addicted to Technology? by Amy Erin Borovoy (2014)

    Can't put down your device? Obsessing over social media? You may want to dig in to this playlist of videos and resources to help educators, parents, and students reflect on their relationship with technology.

  • Common Core in Action: Teaching Online Ethics, by Heather Wolpert-Gawron (2014)

    Wolpert-Gawron looks at a key element of digital citizenship -- responsible use of intellectual property -- and slots it into the eighth grade Common Core Standard for gathering, using, and attributing relevant information.

  • Five-Minute Film Festival: Copyright and Fair Use for Educators, by Amy Borovoy (2013)

    In K-12 education, it's a challenge to navigate the copyright and fair use waters. What can educators use? How can they use it? VideoAmy has collected some fun, engaging videos to help teachers and students understand the confusing subject.

Lisa, thanks for sharing this. I love your toothpaste analogy: "Once you put your information out there, it is very hard to put back in!" So true!

Remember the teacher librarians are trained to teach information literacy... An obvious point often missed in these discussions.

I would like to suggest this chrome app for the 1:1 chromebook (or any device) classroom. The learning experiences are derived from Common Sense Educations print curriculum, but teacher-guided and socially enabled for the 1:1 classroom. Students learn digital citizenship while practicing being digital citizens, all under teacher guidance.
Students collaborate, developing digital concept maps, doing role play, reading short case studies, and more, in both whole class and small group settings.
