Please read the blog listed above about students using technology responsibly. Brad raises a great point and describes a very realistic scenario that could happen anywhere. As we start getting more individual technology pieces (ipods, cameras, laptops, ipads) and start placing them into the hands of students, we have to be ready for mistakes and misjudgments. We as teachers should model and teach responsible use. I love his form and think we should use the same at our Elementary and High Schools. It is a great reminder to the students each time of what is expected of them.
Think about our society and what goes for funny these days. Students are going to fall into the same trap and get themselves and their teachers into trouble. What is humiliation? What is teasing? When is it okay? When is it going too far? How have students used their cell phones at the high schools--videoing fights was the first thing and texting lists of bad things about people. It all comes back to bullying and whether it is old fashioned or technology driven, character education is a must!
