Curriculum Technology and Education Reform (CTER)
Since technology and computers have become an important part of our daily lives, it is equally important that technology be fused into the education process. Not only must educators exhibit ethical excellence in how technology is used in their profession, but educators must instill the same standards in their students.
I chose this site because of the ethics component for educators and students. One of the things educators struggle with in classrooms today is the use of technology along with traditional teacher talk instruction. Our curriculum is requiring that technology be a large part of what students are learning in the classrooms today. This site addresses the use of technology with students in the classroom and the importance of teacher and student ethics. I would use this site with adult students to address Acceptable Use Policy and how to improve education with the use of technology with lesson plans.
Digital citizenship can be defined as the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use. This website reaches out to educators, parents, users addressing the latest technology uses. The digital resources are linked to education and social media. I like the fact that the site has tons of resources for educators, students and parents from driver’s licenses activities to literacy website resources. I would use this site to assist parents and students at home with assignments and research projects. The safety and security resource Pointsmart.ClickSafe helps kids be smart and safe online. I would use the resource activities for trainers of adults to assist me with teaching online allows educators to discover new ideas for teach digital technology.
