Finding Middle Ground

Based on what I know about the zone of proximal development, I need to find a middle ground between what students know (no learning taking place) and what they have to learn. Similar to the sample lesson in 10.e, I would start with goals my students have for their future–whether it be getting into a middle school of their choice, having a good job, or going to college. I would ask them what kinds of behaviors and characteristics would help them achieve those goals, and which actions or behaviors might be hurtful if a future employer or interviewer found out about them. We would then discuss how digital footprints can put both bad and good out into the world–sometimes forever! I would hope that by teaching them that the same values that are important for face to face relationships matter in digital interactions as well would prevent negativity in their digital footprints.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

I really enjoyed differentiating between bullying and discriminatory harassment

As a teacher I never considered discriminatory harassment in school or online for that matter, I always had one broad term, bullying.

I would 100% recommend it

Being in Gen Text small groups in high-school has many beneficial aspects. I would 100%, recommend it to other students considering the various benefits in people skills.

Reflection from an Office Administrator

Generation Text Online is a proactive way of addressing bullying related issues/communications that occur routinely, whether it be between student to student or student to teacher.
