Digital Citizenship, Literacy, Online Safety, and Cyberbullying is a hybrid professional learning group that provides both face-to-face and online content to support educational leadership as we educate our staff members and students in the appropriate, safe, ethical and legal use of technology. Digital Citizenship is constantly changing as new tools, apps and websites are developed and become available to both teacher and student. The purpose of this professional learning unit is to develop an implementation plan so that schools and LEA's have practical hands-on strategies for educating teachers, students and parents in digital citizenship, digital literacy and digital safety. School leaders will explore best practices and look at several successful digital citizenship initiatives in other states and school systems as they develop strategies for implementation of successful digital citizenship training in their school or LEA. Participants will discuss ideas and strategies with other leaders in the group and apply them to their own digital citizenship implementation plan.
Productivity for Technology Leaders is a hybrid professional learning group that provides both face-to-face and online content to support educational leadership in our students' technological world. There are many technological tools available in the marketplace that can help administrators in their tasks and help them succeed in their roles. Such tools make administrators more productive and efficient in their day-to-day tasks. For this professional learning group, school leaders will develop technology skills and strategies to better support their teachers and improve student achievement. Administrators will work together to better use technology to improve personal productivity and model the professional use of technology. Participants will discuss ideas and strategies with other leaders in the group and apply them to their own practice.
