Being a Good Digital Citizen


A good digital citizen is one who does not abuse the internet and the rights of others.  As a good digital citizen students should be aware of what we they are writing and who they are giving the credit.  As a teacher it is my job to teach my students how to be a good digital citizen.  Students should be taught proper netiquette on Social Media Sites.  As today’s students use technology more and more, they should be made aware of what is appropriate and what is not.  They must realize that there are people who could harm them and take advantage of them.  Students should know that being a good digital citizen shows respect for others and their rights. When writing a paper students should be aware of plagiarism and to avoid it.   A good digital citizen shows future teachers and employers they can be trusted and respected.  Learning these skills at a young age will equip them for the future.  For more information on digital citizenship follow this link.  Good Digital Citizenship

Three Types of Material Generators


Worksheet and Puzzle Generators

Worksheet generators are useful in assisting students in the classroom.  One form of worksheet generator is handwriting worksheets.  Handwriting worksheets (Kidzone) are useful for children who are beginning to write.  They are also useful for students you have trouble with fine motor skills.  Puzzle makers are another form of generators.  These are useful for creating spelling words and practicing math skills.  I have used both of these generators in the classroom.

Individualized Education Program (IEP) Generators

As a special education teacher I use Individualized Education Program (IEP) Generators to help write IEP for my students.  Individualized Education Program Generators keep records of students individualized plans and recording a students progress.  They alert you of up coming dates that need to be addressed.

Test Generators and Rubric Generators

Test generators and rubric generators are tools that would help me serve my students better. Creating tests and assessments can be time consuming for a teacher.  Using these tools would free up time I could use for helping students and working on other projects.  Easy Test Maker and General Rubric Makers are online tools that I plan on trying out.
