Summer is almost here, and for many students that means a big break from school. But not from devices. Summer is an opportunity for rest, relaxation, and exploration, and it’s also a time for students to use devices with less adult guidance. This can bring challenges to families and lead to some bad habits. However, that doesn’t have to be the case.
In this edWebinar, Heather Barnard, Digital Learning Leader and Common Sense Ambassador, provides an international perspective on continuing the digital citizenship discussion through the summer. She’ll have key talking points and practical strategies for preparing students to have a fun, #digcit summer! This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school educators.
About the Presenter
Heather Barnard, Digital Learning Leader at Stamford American International School in Singapore, has been teaching for 18 years, internationally for the past nine. With her work in 1-to-1 schools, she has seen firsthand the skills that students need when they’re online, and the skills teachers and parents need to help get them there. Seeing the need for proper digital citizenship integration, Heather left the classroom for a schoolwide position as a member of the digital learning team, where she was put in charge of developing and implementing an integrated digital citizenship program for K–12. As part of her role, Heather also provides workshops for parents, helping bridge the gap between home and school.
