Relax, Relate, Release

You may be thinking, why all the alliteration? Well I would like to think that it is a great way to make a connection with the message you are trying to relay. It also worked when creating a way to pitch the idea of hosting a digital citizenship camp throughout a school year through advisory.

I am fortunate to work in an environment that is receptive to learning and growing. This year the middle school community welcomed the opportunity to go one-to-one with iPads. With this humongous undertaking, came tremendous opportunities to learn and grow. In reflecting upon how we could continue to best support our learning environment, we realized that it would be beneficial to have focused lessons throughout the year. The lessons will be modeled using the framework from Commonsense Media. In sharing our ideas our co-workers were able to:

Relax in knowing lessons were going to be created to address the learning needs of students.

Relate to the latest research and tools available for digital citizenship.

Be better equipped to release our students into the world of digital citizenship as responsible consumers and contributors.
