It is important to learn new strategies

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. I do not know the last time I really thought about bullying and the 21st century in so much detail and how important it is for students to feel a level of trust with teachers for their own safety. I teach young students so I don’t have to deal with cyber bullying yet and often times my students naturally trust me. However, the more I thought about it through the lessons, I really starting thinking of different ways I can force a bond between myself and students to better their safety. I would never want my students to hide information from me and I know know the importance of how the students see me act can effect how they treat their classmates. Some of the most valuable things I learned from this course were words I can give to students to use when figuring out how to react in different social situations. In particular, the 8 essential questions were very meaningful to me. I will continue to keep up to date through the different publications that were presented in this course and forward new research and studies to the teachers I work with so we can all be informed about the challenges that come with 21st century bullying. I will think of the 8 essential questions when planning social discussions, I will also use many of the activities from this course and align it with my curriculum.

My experience with Generation Text has given me a framework for living

Being a part of the Generation Text Online mentor program has taught me the importance of being mentally and physically happy.

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.

I Learned So Much
