Online Safety in the 21st Century Classroom
The world we live in today is more “connected” than ever before, but these connections are accompanied by certain risks. Do you ever wonder about the online footprint you may be leaving? Chances are that you already have an online reputation, even if you do not know it. On the Internet, you create an image of yourself through information you share in blogs, comments, tweets, snapshots, videos, and links. Other people may add their own opinions, positive or negative, to what you leave online, and all of this can contribute to your reputation.
In this course, you will explore the possible dangers that exist online, and methods to avoid them. You will explore online safety and the facts, figures, and resources related to this subject. You will have the opportunity to learn techniques to represent yourself in a digital format by using avatars, and you will soar to new heights using blogs to connect with parents, peers, colleagues, and students. The strategies and tools shared in this course will help engage you in the process of creating a safe online environment for yourself and your students.
This 10 hour course is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, in a self-paced learning format. Educators and professionals searching for 21st Century tools and looking for positive initiatives for their classrooms and schools will take away strategies and tools which will ensure and enable online safety.
