The lessons with videos were the most valuable

I think it’s interesting to delve into the entire world of the internet and understand about cyber bullying and how extreme it could be. I didn’t have access to the internet until I was a teenager but I never experienced nor heard of cyber bullying until I got a little older. To hear all that is going on in the news and how vicious it could be is upsetting, to know that not a student does not have an escape from bullying is upsetting as well. I enjoyed going through all the ideas presented and the videos on what to do in different situations and how to tackle this vicious component that has become such a huge part of our society.

The lessons with videos were the most valuable and I actually shared them with a coworker who teaches internet safety to the high school students.

I think always keeping these goals in mind and mastery of the lessons will help teaching Safety in my school. These goals and lessons extend beyond my classroom and while I have said in many posts I teach the younger students who don’t experience this as much I do have times that I spend with older students and being able to tap into this world helps me understand the realm of this issue and place expectations on myself as a teacher (to notice issues, be there for others, listen and prevent).

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!

Finding Middle Ground

I need to find a middle ground between what students know (no learning taking place) and what they have to learn.

Valuable insight and understanding

Ultimately, the skills have a direct impact on decision making, self-advocating, communication efforts, and positively effecting relationships.

A new way to run a meeting

It is easy to build agendas for meetings that lack the connection. I find that I am constantly now beginning with an activity such as these we are using. I appreciate that as an admin team we are taking time to connect in this way as well.

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.

Breaking down walls

People are more ready to engage in the work when we start a session with such an activity that breaks down walls and gives time to process emotions and make connections before digging into the work ahead.

Students feel heard – with good results!

Working with students in a small group gives me the opportunity to understand my students more deeply on a social, emotional and academic level.
