We will be using Nearpod to implement a series of Digital Citizenship lessons with the Gifted Resource class throughout this semester. The lessons are through the Common Sense Media curriculum on Nearpod, and because Nearpod is so wonderful and helpful to teachers, we are able to modify, add, and combine lessons as needed.
Lesson 1 is about finding Media Balance and asks students to examine both their online and offline activity, the emotions they feel when spending time on these activities and ways they can learn to balance their online and offline time.
Homework for students is to keep a Media Use log. We will use the results in a data dig next week.
