Registration for teachers is required and gives access to teacher resources and a downloadable Moodle version of the site; Moodle is not required to use this site. To access certain external activities and tools, students may need to register with an e-mail. Each Thing contains a Teacher Lesson Guide, Student Checklist, Learning Objectives, and links to various web resources and apps. Things and Quests have roadmap documents for students to use for tracking progress. A Quest includes an introduction (frequently as a short animated video), vocabulary, directions, tutorials, standards, apps, and a student checklist. Extensive teacher resources and support are provided. Assessments are through multiple-choice quizzes at ProProf with a provided password.

Bring some technology into the presentations by challenging small groups of students to transform the PDF presentation into an interactive learning tool for younger students or their peers. Ask them to add questions, feedback, more images, etc. so the PDF becomes a student-created tutorial on an aspect of digital citizenship. Of course, students will be graded on the accuracy of their information as well as their creativity. Think of it as inverse teaching. Have students extract the information (with proper credit of course) and enhance their learning by creating their tutorial using ePubEditor, reviewed here, or redefine learning by having them use Zeetings, reviewed here. Prepare a rubric before you start or use our Rubrics to the Rescueto find one that shares your expectations for this project.

Before you begin work with any tool on the Internet, educate students with the most important lessons, keeping safe! Choose the age group and follow the lessons together as a group on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Continue discussions on your class blog. Add parents to your blog so they can reinforce lessons on Internet safety. Then it is time to introduce the Appropriate Use for Technology permission form, and this will now make sense to kids. Bookmark this site on classroom computers so students can refer to the information. Be sure to offer as a tool for parents to review and reinforce at home.
