Educational Technologies- Variety of Technologies

First I learned about Hongkiat.com which goes over etiquette from reviewing “Angela’s blog” (http://angelalovesschool.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/digital-citizenship/). “This site gives tips on etiquette when using Face book” (Hongkiat.com, 2012). I believe this is a good resource to use as students are using more and more social media sites to communicate. Now, when you start using Face book as a part of your lesson plans it is even more important give resources to help students ethically use social media sites such as Face book. My rationale for selecting this site is that I believe that the tips would be helpful to all students in regards to networking on social media sites although this site is specific to Face book. I would use this site as a tool to help students learn about etiquette when using social media sites and the second way would be to share this site with my colleagues as a resource.

Next, I learned about “Digital Citzenshiped.com from reviewing Mona’s blog” (http://mdmcdanie11.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/digital-citizenship/). Within this site educators can use the resources to help students learn about ethical practices while using online resources. I selected this site because the site is design to help educate the educator to give effective lessons on how to be safe and ethical users-digital citizens. One of the ways I would use this site would be to teach students how to be digital citizenships when using online resources, whether it is for academic, personal, and or professional use. I would share this site with my colleague as well as a second way that I would use the site professionally.

Last, I learned about “Commonsensemedia.org from reviewing Dietrea’s blog” (http://blaqgem76.wordpress.com/2013/02/21/citizens-of-a-digital-world/). Within this site educators can use the resources to teach students and parents about “digital literacy and citizenship” and “professional development for educators” (Commonsensemedia.org, 2012). I selected this site because I like that the site offers professional development along with educating students and parents. The first way I would use this site would be to learn about the professional development classes as this would keep me update and literate about digital citizenship. The second way that I would use this site would be to educate my students about digital citizenship.

  1. Hi Jennifer,

    The technologies that you listed all seem very useful. I really liked common sense media. I find it very helpful to have a website to go to that helps with professional development and that helps people learn more about digital citizenship.
