Our class stories are only shared with our classmates and with parents. Students are also learning how to properly comment on each other's work. Underneath your child's story, you will notice comments and advice left by peers. We talked about making appropriate comments and being mindful of the type of digital footprints we leave behind when we post things online. This led to a meaningful classroom discussion about how saying mean things over the internet is considered a type of bullying, known as cyberbullying. With tech being integrated within our curriculum more and more, it is important to use every opportunity to teach students about digital citizenship. To learn more and get resources about this topic, www.commonsensemedia.org is a great website to visit.
Overall, the students really enjoyed creating their online book and love having another way to express their written creativity. Below is an example of one of the published books, created by Jack:
