Get all the keys you need for teaching keyboarding and digital citizenship to children who have grown up surrounded by technology. In this recorded edWebinar, learn proven strategies for teaching technology to digital natives. Your students might have grown up with tablets, TVs, and cell phones, but do they know how to be responsible digital citizens? We share strategies for digital skill building that will boost students’ confidence in their abilities, and that can be adapted to suit your classroom’s needs.
Viewers will learn why they should include pre-keyboarding activities prior to expecting children to use both hands on a keyboard as well as the importance of lessons on digital citizenship and social-emotional learning. Find out how to set your students up for digital success!
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of the PreK through elementary levels.
