Digital Ethics: A Threshold Forum
[And, if you'll be at NECC this year, be sure to join us and our cable industry partners at numerous presentations and exhibits.]
In this podcast [MP3, 53MB], Dr. Ann Flynn, director of education technology for the National School Boards Association (and member of CIC's National Education Advisory Board), with the assistance of Threshold's Ellen Ullman, moderates a panel that explores the challenges of guiding student behavior in a world of web-based interaction. Panel participants include:
- Jay Bansbach, program specialist in school library media for the Maryland State Department of Education and immediate past president of the Maryland Association of School Librarians;
- danah boyd, a doctoral candidate in the School of Information at the University of California-Berkeley (who joined the conversation late);
- Terry Clark, assistant superintendent of instruction and technology in Bethpage Public Schools in New York (and a 2005 Cable's Leaders in Learning award-winning educator); and
- Tim Lauer, principal of Meriwether Lewis Elementary School in Portland.
For those interested in learning more about digital ethics, internet safety, and media literacy, Cable in the Classroom offers a slew of additional resources. Educators, in particular, may be interested in recent past editions of Cable in the Classroom Magazine, as well as the "Media Smart for Teachers" section of our website. Parents would benefit from content in the current issue of Cable in the Classroom Magazine, published specifically with the summer needs of parents in mind, and the "Media Smart for Parents" section of our website.
While there are many great resources available online related to this topic, be sure to take a look at the recently launched parent resource developed by the cable industry: Point Smart. Click Safe. We'll be working with a wide array of content and distribution partners over the coming years to bring these resources to communities nationwide, including with PTA, PLA, AASL, Common Sense Media, iKeepSafe, NetSmartz Workshop, and SETDA.
