In collaboration with the internet safety group iKeepSafe, I’m pleased to announce a new initiative for introducing digital literacy, safety, security and privacy topics to students and your children.
Each week on behalf of iKeepSafe’s iKeepCurrent project, I pick a current news story and use it as the genesis of a short safety, security, privacy, citizenship, or other internet related lesson. By pulling from news of what’s happening today the lessons are extremely relevant and provide a natural way to pull events into perspective as teachable moments, and as drivers for learning new and positive online skills.
Every lesson includes a list of key concepts, vocabulary words, equipment needed, the full news articles, the lesson plan, optional activities, additional resources, plus learning development resources for teachers, and specific material just for parents.
To check out the lessons and see how you can leverage this material, click on one of the thumbnails (below) or go to http://ikeepcurrent.org/ and register to a weekly email.
I will begin posting these lessons every week as they appear.
