Theresa's notes:

Thank you to the many Digiteen and Digitween teachers who attended today's meeting. If you weren't able to attend, please view the BlackboardCollaborate recording.

We have 11 classes of about 425 students in Digiteen.
There are 13 classes of about 385 students in Digitween.
Some teachers with over 100 students have been split into 1 or 3 classes.

Handshakes: Your students should be working on their handshakes. The timeline states it's from Sept. 30-Oct. 15. Try to stay within the timeline. Do what you can with the time you're allowed with your students. Handshakes should have an intro about themselves and something about Digital Citizenship or Digital Footprint, etc. Digiteen students can write a blog post, too. Some ideas for handshakes: glogs, Animoto video, short video, Voki, paragraph post, prezi.
Ideas for videos: Common Sense Media, Google Digital Citizenship, Edmodo Digital Citizenship, Digital Footprint, Cyberbullying, Netiquette, etc.

Link for avatars:

Students need to have school tag with first name (TheresaCSRN, Theresa_CSRN) so it shows up when they post and it's easily identifiable.

Digitween teachers will move students to small groups when Theresa has them created.
Sheryl will create categories in Digiteen Ning so students can discuss their topic. Small groups can also be created.

Vicki's 5 Steps to Internet Safety:

You will receive an email to place your students in the team grid. Please spread them out so they are working with students other than the ones in their school, if possible.

Digiteen/Digitween checklist:

  • Digitween goals
  • 1. Teachers will add students in team grids, spreading them out.
  • 2. Students will brainstorm in small groups in Edmodo about the topic in cross grid.
  • 3. Students will research/find media to go with their topic.
  • 4. Students decide what to create together in Edmodo for final project.
  • 5. Teachers assigned to grid in small groups - choose 3-4, depending, to oversee.
  • 6. Outcome/action project to be presented in own school. - add images/material personal to their own school.
  • 7. Appoint a student leader for each small group, most likely Gil's or Andy's students (VIMSIA), if extra spaces appoint leaders from your class.

  • Digiteen Goals
  • 1. Teachers add students in team grids, spreading out.
  • 2. Students will use Ning discuss ways to present their topic to their school.
  • 3. Students will use the wiki to add information to use for final project. Use discussion tabs to communicate what was added.
  • 4. Outcome/action project presented to school
  • 5. Student leader appointed to each small group.
  • 6. Teachers oversee 1-2 small groups.
  • 7. Have students use Diigo to bookmark sites for their topic. If interested, contact Theresa or Vicki.
