About this session: What social media apps do you use? How secure are they? As the young, start to increasingly leave FaceBook, what social media apps are increasingly trending with our students? Why are many of these of high concern? What can be done to customize security and privacy settings to ensure that our students are kept as cybersafe as possible? What role should education take in all of this? Can we ever keep up? If not, what can be done? A recent talk by Greg Gebhart of Cybersmart has provided inspiration for this session.

Student Leadership and Digital Citizenship

When:- Tuesday 21st February, 4-5pm Melbourne, Australia time (gmt+11)
About the session:– We often think of student leaders as leading sports terms, or being representatives on Student Representative Councils, or organising fundraising etc.
In the 21st Century, students can be much more sophisticated leaders. They can be citizenship leaders and provide real authenticity to curriculum delivery. They often have a better understanding of the world they operate in than teachers do,. They can also create content that other students will be highly responsive too.
Mark Richardson will demonstrate how student leadership modules for CyberSafety and Digital Citizenship can be planned, delivered, assessed and evaluated. Such modules can be vital to the success of these programs in schools. He will draw on two successful programs conducted with Grade 5 students in the Hobson’s Bay Network of DEECD, Western Metropolitan Region. This module structure he will outline can easily be adapted for other year levels.
About our presenter: Mark Richardson has taught in primary schools for many years.He also has extensive experience planning and delivering professional learning to teachers in ICT / eLearning.
