BYOD Gets a Dash of Digital Citizenship

Apr 3, 2013

Free! 1:1 ESSENTIALS PROGRAM: Those digital citizenship dignitaries at Common Sense Media have just released a comprehensive guide for students, educators, administrators, and parents scratching their heads over the transition towards a 1:1 or BYOD classroom. The 1:1 Essentials Program is broken down into three phases -- Envision, Communicate, and Implement -- which encompass the best practices from a number of K-12 educators and technology facilitators around the country. Each phase includes a number of interactive tools, web resources, and how-to’s which progress users from creating “actionable first steps” to constructing family media agreements and device contracts. Of course, all resources are stand-alone if you’re only looking to cover gaps in your current 1:1 impelementation. Listed below are a few features which stand out:

  • 5 Professional Development Conversation Starters: a collection of PDF templates to help guide conversation across five topics: Hopes and Fears, Problems to Solutions, Sharing Best Practices, Transforming with Technology, and Excitement and Innovation.
  • Q&A for Families: an interactive tool to for creating custom Q&A documents that address parent concerns. Select from 30 frequently asked questions.
  • Top Tips and Tricks: a nicely curated Pinterest list of web resources for iPads and tablets
  • Student Boot Camps: a series of developmentally-appropriate exercises for establishing skills, competencies, and nice-to-know’s in students acclimating themselves to a 1:1 classroom
