This is related to my inquiry question around authentic student digital composing (not just in school) and how to value that kind of writing in the classroom. I taught an entire unit, for the first time, around digital citizenship with my sixth graders. We used the CommonSense site as our springboard, but also went off in a lot of different directions. The final project was a digital poster that I am still looking at. But I was impressed with what they learned, and the kinds of discussion we had, and I realized just how important it is for us to have those kinds of conversations in school (since they are clearly not going on much at home).
What I was trying to do was connect their digital lives outside of the school confines with skills we are teaching inside the school (around inquiry, and process, and informational writing, and digital composition). I still have improvements I need to do (more research-based lessons) for next year, but I found it to be an exciting unit.
Here is a link to some of the Digital Life posters (on Glogster).
Once I finish assessing and "reading" the posters, I will add some more reflections.
