Full course description

Outside of school, students live virtual lives that would astound their teachers and parents. They are active participants in social networking with “friends,” acquaintances and even strangers. Their online world is fraught with sexual predators and identity thieves. Many children are victimized by strangers or peers, and many victimize others. Some students are too trusting, and others don’t know where to draw the line in divulging personal information online. The perils of their lifestyles cannot be underestimated. Unfortunately, most of the adults in their lives are not nearly as tech-savvy as they are. This course goes beyond basic Internet safety and provides the teacher with a solid understanding of current use of technology by students, along with methods and resources for promoting safe and responsible use of technology. This offering is aligned to the ISBE Standards, the Illinois Social and Emotional Learning Standards and to the CPS Framework for Teaching Components 1b, 2a and 2d.
Several days prior to the start of the course, participants receive an email with instructions for accessing the course. A week’s material is posted at the start of each week. Participants are expected to read content and review various resources, write replies/answer questions, share experiences, and engage in discussions with the course facilitator and other participants. None of the assignments are completed in "real-time;" you can work at the times that best suit your own schedule.
