Participate Perspective Paragraph

I learned so much in the participate quest. I currently teach in a middle school that has a BYOT policy and our students are told at the beginning of the year the guidelines for using their technology in the classroom and the student and parent sign an AUL form. However, this quest emphasized the importance of being a responsible digital citizen. With all the technology our students have, it is crucial that we not only give them rules at the beginning of the year, but discuss Internet use throughout the year.
Some very important things to teach students and help them to understand is that anything and everything they put on the Internet can be viewed worldwide and the comments, posts, etc. will be hard to delete. Teaching students to think before they enter comments and stressing the importance of not putting their personal information on the Internet is a top priority.
