Digital Citizenship Week Twitter Chat

Today is the beginning of Digital Citizenship Week. "As parents and educators, we want to raise kids to be safe, responsible, and ethical in the digital world. Giving kids a solid understanding of how we expect them to behave -- both online and off -- starts everyone off on the right foot. When it comes to navigating social media, online games, smartphones, and the Internet, it's best for kids to get their info from a trusted source." So where do we go from here?

The Carroll Instructional Technology Specialists will be hosting a "slow chat" this week to discuss digital citizenship. You can join by following the hashtag #dragonslearn. If you are new to a Twitter chat, read more here

What to expect during a slow chat?
  • The chat will begin Monday, October 19, with only one question asked per day. Format = Q1 for Question #.
  • Teachers, staff, parents and students are asked to answer the question using the format "A1" = Answer to Question #. Because only one question is asked per day, the question will be tweeted at 9am, 12pm, 3pm and 6pm. 
  • Be sure to share resources if possible when answering questions.
Don't forget that if you are new to Twitter and Twitter chats, be sure to read this blog post for a few tips on participating in a Twitter chat. See you online!
