Option 3: Exploring past and present technologies: Share a lesson idea that involves exploring past and present technologies. You might prepare a resource, a lesson plan or some online content that accompanies your lesson.

Last term we read this book in a Guided Reading session:


It provided a fabulous discussion on changes to music, airliners, telephones and books. The chapters that compared the gramophone with the MP3 player, and the first phone with today's mobile phones were really interesting for the students.

Digital Citizenship has to be a key area of focus in the modern classroom with the access to online digital devices that all students have today.

The transference of behaving appropriately in class and the playground must now apply to behaving appropriately online. Two key concepts I reiterate in my class are: one, if you would not say it to someone's face then don't type it online; and two, don't be a bystander. This last concept my students are most familiar with. What students require today, is ways of being responsible when inappropriate situations occur.
