The United Federation of Teacher's paper recently highlighted the work of NYC DoE teacher, Janet Elias who teaches technology at PS 46 in Queens. You can see the piece here. I had the pleasure of having Ms. Elias in a class recently where she showed me how they create excitement about learning via the respectful and responsible use of social media. Here is a fantastic bulletin board she and her students created.
At her school, students learn at an early age what a digital footprint is and why it is important for college and career readiness.
They also have a Facebook page which you can check out here.
If you are in New York City and interested in learning how to do this for your school you can visit this link to discover free classes.
