  • The most significant goal of this presentation is to provide frameworks for schools, teachers and parents to use in developing a Digital Ethics curriculum alongside other elements of technology integration. By layering common data about use on top of current work on brain science, and adolescent media, we'll offer access points for meaningful engagement of complex teen issues in a quickly evolving digital geography. In particular we are presenting ways to link "non-native users" with digital natives through an exploration and application of ethics. We'll use storytelling, data models, and examples of lesson series, which empower students to engage adults knowledgeably, and equitably in the learning curve that characterizes conversations about behavior online and within social media contexts. At our school, we have seen the incidence of online harassment decline well below national norms while students are increasingly utilizing the tools of informed citizenship, caring for each other online, and resolving conflict in sophisticated ways.

  • Apple has a whole category dedicated to education in the App store. But how do you really know which ones are worth downloading, or possibly even paying for?

    TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) to the rescue! TCEA regularly tests available apps and recommends apps that teachers should be using.

    TCEA maintains a list of recommended apps in a shared document via Google Docs. The list is organized by subject area and free apps are color coded in white.
