The goal of this website and blog is twofold. Initially, it was to provide educators with resources to support meaningful technology integration, and I will continue supporting colleagues in this way. Now, I am excited to focus on providing parents with tools for advocating for transformational change in their children’s use of technology. Please visit Parenting Digital Leaders and learn more.

If you’ll be attending ISTE this summer, come by the Ed Tech Coaches Playground and say hello! I’ll be presenting Building Better Digital Citizens Begins with Me on Tuesday during Session 1.

Session outline of what I’ll be sharing:

  • How to open dialogue with school leadership and colleagues on the shared responsibility for teaching digital citizenship using the ISTE Standards as support.
  • How to design and implement a Digital Citizenship Week (I did this at the state level, but it can be scaled back to fit individual’s needs).
  • Introduction to Indiana Connected Educators’ (ICE is our ISTE Affiliate) six week online course that prepares you for pursuing Common Sense Education Digital Citizenship Certification as a school and/or district.
