Tool #11 Self-Assessing

Students are sometimes too trusting of technology so they need to be trained of how it can be an amazing tool to benefit their education but also a tool to be treated with proper respect.  Just as we would not set them down with a chainsaw and tell them to "experiment", we need to walk them through the beginning steps.  Teach them to detect the dangers, to know to how stay away from it or make the right choices when confronted with it when necessary.

I believe teaching about digital safety and citizenship is crucial so that our students don't fall into the hands of a cyberbully or anyone else with dangerous intentions. 

I believe that helping them learn how to stay safe if crucial so they learn to respect others as they use the internet and communicate across the globe or their classrooms.
