In this episode, author and EdTech Curriculum Instructional Specialist, Hedreich Nichols, joins to discuss how educators can help students be respectful in online spaces. You’ll hear about free media literacy and digital citizenship resources to use with students plus tips for modeling citizenship and empathy online.
This week’s episode is titled: “How to Help Students Be Respectful in Online Spaces with Hedreich Nichols” and it was so much fun chatting about this very important topic. I first connected with Hedreich on Twitter after reading her article for Edutopia on developing empathetic student citizens. Helping students navigate digital spaces is essential – it’s actually one of the ten essentials in my book EdTech Essentials that came out from ASCD last year. If you are wondering how to model and share strategies with students for being respectful in online spaces, well this episode is for you!
