    Bullying: No More, No Less... Just More Visible

    A lot of the articles I read in preparation for this post were about the negative side of digital citizenship: online bullying. I touched briefly on digital citizenship and online safety in an earlier blog post, but I will now take the opportunity to

    Copyright: What's the Big Deal?

    You wouldn't... would you? I'm sure the above video will solicit a lot of memories. Back when films first started appearing online and suddenly, we were led to believe that everyone and their mother were downloading pirated films. Really, what

    Navigating the World Wide Web

    A digital footprint? What's that? Recently, I was on my personal Facebook page, and the "On This Day" feature proudly displayed that it was my 10 year anniversary on Facebook. I have been a member of the social network for 10 years. Taking a look at

    Digital Detectives

    Digital Archeaology is a thing now. I thought that was at least 5 years out, but obviously I was wrong. Along those line, last year my co-workers and I put together a video to show kids about being good digital citizens (please don't judge me too har

    A Tale of Snapchat and Service Learning

    I am not a fan social media (for personal life). I think I last updated Facebook 6 months ago, but I have been toying with the idea of posting that I just paid off my student loans (shameless brag). I didn't have Twitter until 2 years ago, and I didn

    Share with Care

    How do I model and share my limited knowledge on online privacy? I teach my second graders Common Sense Media lessons on keeping personal information private and creating strong passwords when they are cruising the web.  I should probably apply
