Answer in a complete paragraph response: How has the Participate module prepared you to meet each standard listed above? Link to or provide specific examples from your work in Participate. What strategies will you take away from the Participate module and apply to your teaching? What lessons were most beneficial for you?
Blog posts that are related to each standard are linked above. I think the most important ideas that I will take from the Participate module is recognizing and cultivating a reputable digital footprint in my own transactions and communications with others. This is something I want to focus heavily on with my students. They are young and impulsive, so they don’t always think about the consequences of their actions. I believe using real-life scenarios to push this idea is the key to grabbing their attention. I believe the copyright and fair use lesson was the most powerful for me since it was a refresher on proper use of digital materials. As a teacher, I deal with digital materials and the use of them every day. I want to make sure that I am doing so in the correct and legal way.
