Hello everyone! It’s Nina and Hannah from your E block Technology Integration class! Last week, we had the opportunity to speak to other classrooms around the world during #digcitathon!
It helped both us and the other classrooms grow and learn together. We discussed everything from BYOD to your personal privacy when you are online. We talked about our use of technology and how we have incorporated it into our daily life in school in comparison to how they use technology. We provided each other with tech tips on how to better our technology usage. We had the opportunity to talk with multiple classrooms from places ranging from Canada to Georgia and everywhere in between.
We discussed at lengths with a class of seventh and eighth graders from Georgia about what it means to be digital citizens. The kids that spoke to us are very involved with technology in their school and are looking for any ideas to make it better, the two classes had a very unstructured conversation about our their personal ideas for improvement. Digital citizenship was a big topic of conversation. How can the student body best use technology? We discussed how we both can improve our digital citizenship in our schools and work to spread it to other schools as well.
It was privilege to have this opportunity to discuss our digital footprint with others of different backgrounds. The very unique opportunity was given to hear the Canadian National Anthem and the Texas Pledge of Allegiance, that just goes to show you the different cultures that took place in #digcitathon. It was great to reach out to these different classrooms from all these different states, countries, and time zones who all share the same love of technology that we do!
