Trying to figure out Cyber Safety EDLD 5316 Week 4 Journal Entry

Looking back on this week, I never thought about cyber-bullying as much as I have this week. Now, after the videos and material I have seen there are several things I never thought about before. How do we stop cyber-bullying? Can federal law be passed that will affect all the nation? Then comes the burden of proof. When is private, private? Is anything ever published online considered private? These questions point out the fact that we are really behind the internet and social media when it comes to proper etiquette and more important cyber safety.

Journal Entry Week 3 EDLD 5316

Copyright is something that I deal with daily. Working at the college level I am constantly searching for images to use for my students to study with and to test by.

I have noticed my digital footprint showing up more in the last few years. I always noticed it on websites that advertisements would show up with the subject being searches I had previously performed. I now notice that when I play a game app on my phone the advertisements that show up are recent searches I have performed. I always had an idea that everything was connected but it hit me when I saw it in a game on my phone. If net neutrality is enforced then the tracking couldn’t be used against you, but it your ISP’s can track your digital foot print, limit bandwidth, or charge you more for certain services then your digital footprint becomes a liability.

Week 1 Journal Post for Digital Citizenship

Placeholder Image

This week everything that I have read has been a new concept. I understand the concepts of what it means to be a Digital Citizenship, but that is as far as I had gone, defining and developing the concepts of how to teach students to be a responsible digital citizenship was never a second thought of mine. Truthfully I never heard the term before this class and I have been teaching online classes since 2008. The biggest point that I believe exist is making students aware that they are digital citizens and how that is different from being just a citizen.

Implementing Technology by Flipping the Classroom: An Article Review



The purpose of this plan is to implement technology by flipping the classroom. Classrooms are beginning to struggle with Generation Y’s need for constant stimulus in the classroom (Gillispie, 2016). The plan looks at why to implement technology, why should the classroom be flipped, does peer to peer learning work with today’s students. This review considers the technology that is already used in the classroom, what we need to make the plan work, and what could be done better with implementing new technology. Applying lessons learned from other schools that have been through the same type of implementation will be considered before this implementation takes place.
