A Journey Through Technology

Week 8 Reflection

on March 26, 2018

This week we looked at the Common Sense Media resources for digital citizenship. I found the 9-12 resources to be very useful and am planning on implementing their use at the beginning of all of my classes in the fall.

The biggest issues that I have been running into deal with using other people’s creations and making sure that students know how to properly use and cite their sources when doing any sort of research work in class. I know that one of the biggest problems I have had with copyright is using pictures off of the internet, and my students also have this issue. It’s so easy to think that if you find a picture online, it’s perfectly okay to use that image as long as you give credit where credit is due. I have since been educated further in this area and now know that it isn’t that simple at all. It is hard to get students to understand that, or it least it has been in the past, so now I’m hoping the Common Sense resources will help me teach them how to use resources correctly.
