I learned many new things doing my walkabout on the web. My middle school has a Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) policy and students are allowed to access the Internet whenever a teacher has an assignment that requires Internet access. We also have Internet safe guards so that students cannot access improper material at school. If a student does not have a cell phone, or tablet, we have ipad minis and PCs in the classroom for student use. In addition we have 3 computer labs that teachers may reserve for class activities.
Students at my school are proficient in taking quizzes on-line using Google Form, Socrative, and Kahootit. My school has subscriptions to Studyisland.com and USATestprep,com which allows for our students to practice concepts in their grade and subject area. I supplement my instruction with Khan Academy, Learnzillion, Discovery, and Illuminations. All of these tools allow students to proceed through learning math concepts in an interactive environment.
As I proceeded through the walkabout I learned several new things about Internet Safety, I have posted them at https://delicious.com/scmorris/search/internet,safety. They include:
Raising Digital Citizens/ StaySafeOnline.org
A Web Quest for students:Internet Safety Webquest at google.com
Safe Browsing Tool/ WOT (Web of Trust) mywot.com
These three websites can teach students how to safely search on the Web and will help students to maximize their learning. I think the mywot.com app that can be added to Google Chrome will be a great tool for my students. Of course with the Web having so much inappropriate data, parents will need to monitor and/or put parental controls on Internet access to ensure that children do not post things on the Internet that could lead to trouble such as their home address, phones numbers, etc.
I also posted several of my bookmarks on the delicious.com which my students use to explore different learning styles.
