Capstone Project Title
This capstone project focuses on answering the question, what are the impacts on digital citizenship when creating the norms and procedures for integrating one-to-one iPads into an upper elementary classroom? It documents one educator’s experience and research that led them to gathering and adapting six mini lessons that teach digital footprints, healthy media choices, digital citizenship, credible sources, private vs personal information, and setting up expectations for home and school. This project resulted in four major findings. First, collaborating within your school and district is essential for providing the support needed for 1:1 implementation. Second, having a strong classroom and school community is incredibly beneficial at any grade level. Third, Digital Citizenship requires student involvement, not just explicit teaching. Fourth, while technology has many benefits, it does not have to be the main focus of everything you do in your classroom.
