I felt the digital foot print aspect of the course was very insightful and relevant for teachers teaching in the city today. In order to be a highly effective teacher it is essential to conduct lessons that include students going online independently. I really got useful strategies when teaching my classes about having a digital foot print and how behaving in a certain manner today can effect there futures greatly. In order to maintain safety and order in I will thoroughly teach my classes about the consequences of having a digital foot print. I think that spending time on this topic before the students have access to computers and the internet is essential. I would not have thought to so if I did not take this course.
One of the things that I found most interesting was learning about is how important the teacher-student relationship is.
You can not just do lesson on character education and bullying and expect students to be prepared to be 21st century dual citizens.
As a teacher I never considered discriminatory harassment in school or online for that matter, I always had one broad term, bullying.
I found this course to be very insightful and interesting on many different levels. First off, being a teacher I think it is always important to reflect and learn new teaching strategies.
