  • Living with Technology: Understanding our Digital Well Being
    Remote learning is changing education: how we teach, engage our students, the time we spend online, and student interactions. With this increase of technology use, educators must be aware of topics such as screen time, security (exp. “Zoombombing,” “Spoofing”), cyberbullying, social media, misinformation and disinformation (fake news). The Living with Technology: Understanding our Digital Well Being self-paced course aims to examine the evolving role of technology in student learning and the educator’s growing role in this. The content of the course focuses on familiarizing teachers with the crucial and timely technology topics mentioned above while giving powerful strategies and tools to help students conceptualize the digital environment that is increasingly becoming part of nearly every aspect of their lives. Participants will develop school resources, lessons, or a community event to share with students, staff, and/or families as a final project.  Sign up via Teachpoint! For more information click here.
