This week’s Tech Bytes focuses on US! We all know the powerful influence we can have over students by what we think, say, and do.

➡️ First up, here‘s a recommended article from MIT Technology Review with suggestions on how to talk to children about AI.


Educators as Responsible Digital Citizens


At AISB our work is guided by the ISTE Standards for Students and Educators. Educators Standard 2.3 Citizen states:

Educators inspire students to positively contribute to and responsibly participate in the digital world.

Students are watching us all the time. We are their trusted adults and role models in this media-rich world. As we are ALL teachers of technology, it is our responsibility to model digital citizenship, responsible use of technology, and, perhaps most importantly, respectful and ethical behaviour when using and sharing the work of others.

Grade 5 students have been learning how to carefully source and cite images they use in their work. Watch the video below and then take a moment to reflect on your own practice when adding images to the digital creations you share with students, colleagues, and parents.
