Digital citizenship – You can run, but you can’t hide!

Maybe we are teaching in the trenches of testing, standards, constant change, time constraints, technology hurdles, and funding for our schools. Maybe we always will be. I think if we, as teachers, begin to accept that the to-do lists of teaching will always grow and they will never go away, maybe we can begin to prioritize and find peace in the fact that this is the nature of our job. Accept the chaos because it exists in the hope of a better future for our students.

A recent addition to the education to-do list is digital citizenship. I believe digital citizenship deserves to be moved up and made a priority on this everlasting list. EduTopia demonstrates some of the current weaknesses in our attempts at digital citizenship in the article below. Check it out! It’s a quick read.
