Are you teaching students to be the same type of person online as you are in real life? Your online presence should reflect you.

Research as moved from safety/predators to more of the reputation online
Students need to participate as stakeholders and in a meaningful manner

Stories? Why is there this need?

Are they using the proper tools you want them using in class? Are they checking their Facebook? - Etiquette
There is a big disconnect between online and in person
Cyberbullying becoming more prevalent and bring digital citizenship to the forefront
Coaches dealing with players disrespecting other teams online; another set a curfew for not being on Facebook after 10
Parents are not aware - sharing with newsletters home - not an invasion of privacy (they already have 300+ friends)
One-to-one school - students violating AUP at home on school property
Cultures/environments are different, but need to take what we already have and apply to digital environment
Need to get point across that digital is just an extension under citizenship - would you say it to your face

Need to make overt analogies - would you stand in the middle of your town square displaying what you are showing, would you say that to your friend's face
Difference between CAN and SHOULD
Parents not always demonstrating proper behavior at home

39% of teens admitted to sending suggestive text
70% of bags have cell phones
47% can text with their eyes closed ---- one participant said students must keep hands on desk where they can be seen to prevent texting/cheating, other said phone must be seen on the desk to make sure it isn't being used

Side note - We are losing are communication skills. What will happen to our voices? Our thumbs?

Older students teaching elementary students. We can tell them, but the biggest way to create change is through their peers rather than teachers.
