- You are a human being not a human doing. We will continue doing,doing,doing but we need to remember that we are a human being first. We can not be defined by our tasks but rather our impact on humanity.
- When you burnout it is a tragedy. She invited us to take care of ourselves. I see teachers and administrators all the time not taking care of themselves. They go on full speed until exhaustion sets in. It is ok to take time for family, friends and self growth. Really. It is ok and is so important.
What comes from the head goes over the headWhat comes from the heart goes into the heartThe heart. Yes. It all comes back to relationships. Ashley also said ‘technology cannot take the place of relationships.’We as educators have the ability to touch our students’ lives. We need to listen to them and let them know we care about their whole being not just their brain.I went into tonight’s keynote with the utmost respect for Ashley Judd. I left knowing even more about her and yes respecting her even more. She is right, our dark past can become our biggest asset. Of course that is only if we choose to grow from our past and not allow it to define us or destroy us.I choose to let my past be an asset. I also choose to lead from the heart. What do you choose?

We are currently working on our K-12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum, and besides identifying key concepts for each grade we have also identified immediate needs at 5th and 8th grade, as well as high school. To address these immediate needs I created presentations for each level and have been teaching these focus lessons. I’ve embedded the prezis below. They are all saved as public and reusable so feel free to copy and adapt them for your own use as needed. (Just put link to original prezi somewhere on your modified version.)
Grade 5: What is Digital Citizenship?
The focus of this presentation is for students to think about what it means to be a good citizen, both online and off. It also includes a digital citizenship pledge from Commonsensemedia.org where students will take the pledge and add their own ideas to it.
Grade 8: Safety and Security in the Digital Age
The focus of this presentation is for students to think about what they share and who they share with. I ended the presentation by asking them ‘If I googled you, or your grandfather googled you today what do you want them to see about you?’
High School: Building a Positive Tattoo
The focus of this presentation is for students to understand what their digital tattoo is and how they can make sure they build a positive one.
I also created a parent presentation for our middle school orientation. This presentation is geared towards parents of 5th graders moving into 6th grade (10-11 year olds).
