If you access the link to the recording it would be great if you could either tweet me (@JoHart) or leave a short comment on this post to let me know. I would really like to know if it is useful to people when I post the overviews & recording links
The purpose of this session was for all of us to share some of the resources we use to address issues of digital safety for students. We had a terrific session with excellent links shared for resources, websites and a digitally safe virtual space.
As usual the session was recorded and as we often do we began with our thoughts on what we would like to be able to take away from the session.
We moved on to discussion and resource sharing, talking about the different ways we raise and address issues of digital safety with our students.
Several different types of resources were shared and discussed using both Application Share and Web Touring. Discussion was very active with participants using both audio and text chat throughout, and certainly I gained some great insights into some different approaches to digital safety.
We finished up by collecting all the resource links onto a whiteboard, so that anyone accessing the recording can easily find them all in one place!
The sharing of resources is always one of the things I enjoy most about many of our webinars. I also love it when people talk about the resources that they use themsleves with their own students because this provides insights for me into the way others work with their students. So giving me ideas for improving how I work with my own students.
Our next session is an Edublogs “Serendipity” session on Thursday March 3rd at 23:00 GMT/UTC (6pm USA EST, Midnight BST) or Friday March 4th at 1am CEST, 7am West Aus, 10am NSW, depending on your timezone – in the usual Elluminate room. This is one of our fortnightly unconference sessions where we invite you to bring along your “hot topics” and “burning issues” for our poll on the topic of the day. If you want to propose a topic in advance then visit the Serendipity Wallwisher and add your topic.
In the Future
If you are a regular visitor to our webinars you will know that we alternate “Fine Focus” sessions on specific topics with “Serendipity” the unconference sessions where we choose a topic by poll at the start of the session. Sometimes the very fact of being asked for “hot topics” or other ideas for discussion or learning tends to make our minds blank. This has prompted me to start a Serendipity Wallwisher for topic suggestions. Please visit the wall and add your ideas for Serendipity topics so that we have more choices to consider. Some of these ideas might also form the basis for future “Fine Focus” sessions.
