ISTE Coaching Standard & Indicator 5b: Model and facilitate safe, healthy, legal and ethical uses of digital information and technologies.
As a Digital Learning Specialist, I ensure safety, security, and healthy use of digital information and technologies, but especially important, I educate staff and students on the same. The following examples show I am proficient in knowing ISTE coaching standard 5b:
I facilitate staff and student understanding and use of new student password reset tool developed by the district network manager and technicians ensuring students’ accounts are safe and they understand the need for a secure password.
As an assigned Google Administrator for the district, I manage Google services for staff and students within the district domain. I know legal issues and ensure the district is COPPA (children’s online privacy protection rule) compliant.
As a Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship certified educator, I speak to public and school librarians and teachers on quality curriculum and creative instruction to help staff and students become safe, effective, communicators and users of digital resources.
The following blog post shows how I help teachers to promote and model digital citizenship.
