La inocencia de los niños se pierde cuando estan forcado en papeles de adultos y se pierde las cosas como la honestidad, el respeto, y la consideración. La explotación de niños pasa todos los días. Niños trabajadores o mal tratados y los que sufren porque no tienen la vide que merece TODOS los niños. Ningún niño merece dormir con el estómago vacío. Rezo todas las noches ellos y que ojala mantengan su inocencia y su…Continue

In the beginning
When I began teaching digital citizenship in 2010 it was an innocent time. We were only worried about the students believing all websites were real. I directed students to The Dog Island website, where you could pack up your dog in a crate and send him off for a week long romp on a beach. The site was very believable; pictures of the dogs, and even information about how to ship your dog. There’s other sites too; you can learn…Continue

I have parents coming into my classroom today asking how their child is doing in my class. They only have a 95, how can they get a higher grade?
This happens over and over again. I wonder why they're here. I don't think it's to make themselves feel better about how great their child is doing in school. I also don't think that they are very worried about the 95 not being a 98. I believe it's to show their child that they are fully invested in…

I just became a member of Classroom 2.0! My favorite thing about this site is connecting to such diverse group of people so easily! It's such a great way to continue building my network and having great conversations to help me along the way.

I am now a member of classroom 2.0. I joined the instructional technology group because it is similar to the class I am taking. I think it is very interesting to see other people who are doing things like I am. I am not a part of any other networking groups, but I think this will be a good start to it. I am interested to learn more about it in the future. I am also interested to find more connections through this website.

Yes, I am a member of classroom 2.0, but so far I have only reached out to others. I have yet to hear back from them to continue a conversation since I just became a member. The benefits of a global networking site are to get to know others and view their perspective on different topics. It is a way to connect with others that you wouldn't normally connect with otherwise.

You teach your kids how to create hyperlinks with just PowerPoint or Google Slides!
Here’s my plan.
Begin the lesson with having the students create the first slide, a “Table of Contents” sort of slide. Mine looks like this.…
