Welcome to Technology! In this modern, fast paced world, our kids are totally connected. We can fight against this inevitability and widen the gap between our students and their success, or we can embrace the awesomeness that comes with this change.
I choose to embrace. My job is to give your students the power to think for themselves and to motivate them to create using modern, (and not so modern) technologies! Additionally, I have the responsibility to teach them how to use these things safely and drive positive changes in the world.
So how do we protect our kids from all the scary things out there on the internet?
Let's use a common experience for most of us. Getting your driver's license! This is one of the most freeing moments of your life, yet also one of the most dangerous. How did we prepare for that? Training. They need to practice getting online and getting used to their virtual environment. There are many tutorial videos, and online games that help prepare students to get their "virtual license!"
