I have attached a link to an article I have written recently for the the spring edition of the Saskatchewan School Library Association's publication The Medium. The article is titled Finding Our Voice.
It was through the mentioned inquiry projects I co-planned and taught this year that I was able to develop a basic understanding of student needs with regards to digital citizenship.At first I thought that my learning was a reaction to what my students needed. Now, having researched, discussed and blogged about digital citizenship and what it means in my context, I know that I was learning with my students. It was through this process that I now better understand my students' reality in the digital world. I know I have a lot to learn but it's a long, ever-changing journey. I feel better prepared for the next steps now.
With the reflection that is occurring at this point in the school year, I am wondering about next year. How can I do better next year? Will I be able to engage more staff members in this type of learning? How can I engage parents in these conversations about digital citizenship?
