As educators, we strive to integrate technology into our instruction every day. But how often are we actually learning in an online setting? Now, we invite you to be a professional online learner and participate in SCCOE’s Professional Innovation Pathways. Each course and academy focuses on a unique digital theme, relevant research, and best practices of digital learning.
This course guides educators through the major issues surrounding digital citizenship and how to address them in schools. Each of the four pathways offers resources, videos and lessons to help educators at all levels, from administrators to teachers to coaches, use digital tools appropriately and lead students and parents toward becoming better digital citizens. You'll gain a comprehensive understanding of how to use the various national standards to develop, model and facilitate digital citizenship skills. Additionally, we have aligned many of our tasks to the Common Sense Education Digital Citizenship Certified Educator program.
