What do you want YOUR digital footprint to look like?
My middle school goes 1-1 with iPads tomorrow, and I can’t help but feel that I am on the edge of a new world. Everyone has done his or her best to get everyone else prepared. We’ve had PD for teachers, meetings for parents, and 2 solid days of iPadless iPad training for the kids, including teaching them about their digital footprint, cyberbullying, and creative commons. But here’s what I know: no one is ready.
I know I’m not ready to hit the ground running and seamlessly integrate the use of iPads into my classroom makeup, but I am ready to START.
I made some promises to my students on Friday. I promised that I will be patient if they are too. I promised that together we will try things that will fail as well as things that will succeed. I promised that we would be going on this new adventure together!
