tag(s): digital storytelling (144), graphic design (48), graphic organizers (50), stories and storytelling (42)

In the Classroom

Storyboards don't have to just be for storytelling. Have students pick a historical event or era they have studied or are interested in exploring further and use the templates to create a graphic novel-style storyboard that narrates the event. Have students select a social issue they are passionate about, such as bullying, mental health awareness, or digital citizenship, and have them choose a template to create a comic book. These can be printed and hung around the school. For younger students, customize a template and print it for offline use. It can be used for any sequencing concept, like life cycles or moon phases. Discuss the idea of daily routines with the class, talking about different activities they do from morning to night.

You might even find a tool that is useful for your own purposes when creating learning objects! As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Understand the tenets of copyright and digital citizenship that apply to remixing and reusing images. 2. Explore three tools and how each can be used to alter and change images; and 3. Plan for the introduction of creative image tools in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

This site includes advertising.

tag(s): character education (75), communication (134), digital citizenship (90)

In the Classroom

Include this article with your other digital citizenship lessons as a starting point for classroom discussions or as part of a broader lesson in responsible citizenship. Consider selecting a tip each week to explore further with your class. Engage students by beginning the week using a word cloud creation tool like Answer Garden, reviewed here. Use the tip as the prompt in Answer Garden and ask students to share their thoughts and ideas. Continue to build upon your students' ideas throughout the week using Google Jamboard, reviewed here, to create a template for students to share digital stickers with information. For example, the fourth tip recommends that all online users carefully craft their message. Create a Jamboard divided into columns labeled grammar, clarity, and audience. When crafting online content, ask students to share specific ways to keep these topics in mind. As an extension activity, ask students to write a short article sharing tips and information on becoming responsible digital citizens. Use a simple web-publishing tool like Telegra.ph, reviewed here. Although Telegra.ph is simple to use, it offers features that allow students to create and share simple websites, including links, images, and more.

Google and iKeepSafe present a three-part standards-based curriculum teaching digital literacy and citizenship for middle school students. Each class focuses on a different component of safe online use. For example, the first class explores how to evaluate the credibility of online information, the second focuses on maintaining a positive online reputation, and the final course teaches students how to avoid online tricks and scams. All courses include a printable lesson plan, student handouts, and links to videos included in the lessons. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable.

tag(s): character education (75), digital citizenship (90)

In the Classroom

Incorporate the videos and lessons into your current digital literacy curriculum as needed, or use them as a stand-alone curriculum to address digital literacy lessons in your classroom. Engage students as you begin lessons using an interactive whiteboard such as IdeaBoardz, reviewed here, to create a digital KWL class response instead of using the printable KWL handout included in the course. Enhance instruction when using the shared videos using playposit, reviewed here, to create an interactive learning environment that places comments, questions, surveys, and polls directly onto the video. Extend learning by asking students to become the instructor using a video conversation platform such as Threadit, reviewed here. For example, ask students to use the tutorial template to create lessons to share with younger students on different aspects of digital literacy. The template is customizable and includes a step-by-step outline for creating a video tutorial featuring one or more speakers.

Proper use and understanding of using technology responsibly are essential for all students to acquire. This offering from PBS Learning Media focuses on Digital Citizenship concerning technological literacy. Each of the fifty-three included videos helps students understand concepts such as understanding the role of influencers on social media, editorial accuracy, and why many people are susceptible to disinformation. Each video is relatively short in length, running from around five to fifteen minutes. Look for the icon with "SM" located at the bottom of some of the descriptions; these videos include additional support materials for use in the classroom.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session is from October 2021. You can register and immediately view the archive of the session.

As educators, we can prepare every child to be influential by helping them understand how to leverage the power of social media. While students intuitively understand the mechanics of social media platforms, using them in a responsible, purposeful way to build influence is not instinctual and must be taught and practiced. Learn to develop your students' social media savvy by using practice spaces focused on digital citizenship, critical thinking, persuasion, and communication skills. Explore online and offline strategies and tools to create safe, authentic learning experiences for students in grades 2-12 in any content area. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Learn the importance of responsible social media use by students; 2. Understand the purpose of using social media practice spaces as part of regular instruction; and 3. Explore both paper-based and digital practice spaces that can be used with students. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

The archive of this teacher-friendly, hands-on webinar will empower and inspire you to use learning technology in the classroom and for professional productivity. As appropriate, specific classroom examples and ideas have been shared. View the session with a few of your teaching colleagues to find and share new ideas. Find additional information and links to tools at the session resource page. Learn more about OK2Ask and upcoming sessions here.

Do you want students to learn about Twitter and the proper use of social media without actually using social media? Tweetgen is a free tool that generates fake Tweets that use Twitter's current look and options. Choose from one of three options to create a Tweet, block, or suspension. Scroll through the site to add information, including an image, name, date, time, and more. Tweetgen even offers an option of adding a fact check warning similar to those found on some posts on Twitter; as you add information, the live preview updates. When finished, generate the image, then save it to your device.

tag(s): digital citizenship (90), internet safety (113)

In the Classroom

Use Tweetgen as part of your Internet safety and digital citizenship lessons as a tool for teaching students how to use social media properly. Include it as an engaging way for students to share learning about events in history. For example, generate tweets that might have occurred in response to Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Have students add fact check warnings for false information. After saving the images, include them in a larger multimedia presentation created using Sway, reviewed here, that includes student-created texts, images, tweets, and videos. Learn more about social media practice spaces by reading this helpful blog post.
