      Relates back to article discussing the "pen pals" and includes ways of digitally collaborating.

    2. Furthermore, they fail to understand that who we are online should be who we are in person.

      An important statement for student to learn early on. This is important because it is a way of introducing social media to students in the correct way so they know how to interact with it in the future.

    1. Sometimes participants slip into a social-network mode of communicat-ing. They may use textspeak or even inappropriate language, or they might upload pictures that are not acceptable in all global classrooms. This is where teachers must monitor in an engaged manner.

      Elsie and I think that when moments like these arise, educators must teach students about being responsible digital citizens.

    2. “flatten,” or lower, the classroom walls so that instead of each class working alone, two or more classes join virtually to become one large classroom.

      Here is where the authors actually define what it means to "flatten" a classroom. Basically, it's creating a connection between two distinct classrooms and merging them into one. Later on in the text, the authors state that the two classrooms share a curricular perspective...what exactly does that entail?

    3. Will encouraging students to engage in global collabora-tive environments land teachers in hot water?

      What sorts of environments would be problematic?

    4. They need to develop their own personal learning networks and have some understanding of what con-nected learning looks like and how to harness its power

      We have to create our digital environment to take part and think you take part in technologies

    5. This allows them to custom-ize and personalize digital tools and set up individualized learning environ-ments on their mobile computers. When students graduate from high school, they should have a positive digital footprint with academic mate-rial included
    6. avoid the fear factor that can easily paralyze you

      I think there are rational concerns over PEOPLE (not just kids, although Louis CK focuses on kids here) interacting away from face to face interactions.

    7. Navigate

      What experiences do you have with formal digital citizenship curriculum? Informal? A long time ago, one of my roommates wrote me a long, angry, distressing email. This was before people (or I) checked email multiple times a day (2000). I went home, hung out, returned to work, and went home and hung out and returned to work before I read the email. To this day, I remember the feeling I had reading that email at work, knowing my roommate had been around me with full knowledge that the email was out circulating in cyberspace. To this day, I remember thinking emails of that sort were for cowards and people fearful of face to face social interactions. I'm not sure if this is the same today, but I believe the concerns over how people treat each other on the Internet and the importance of keeping the PERSON you are communicating with in mind remain. I'm not sure my roommate/friend was thinking much about me while drafting that email, even though it was sent to me and would have lasting ramifications on my life and our friendship.

    8. How can we teach proper online social interactions when the students are outside our classroom and thus outside our control?

      This seems to be the case with any curricular concept.

    1. we will stop making excuses and dangerous assumptions about what they do and don't know about using technology.

      As educators we should not be making excuses and assumptions to begin with. Changing a label isn't going to educate students, that's the teacher's job. We should all help our native students learn to be citizens regardless.

    2. The minute that we place a device in the hands of a child, it does not make them a digital native.

      We think that digital native refers to someone who is intuitive with technology and we disagree that it is a negative stereotype. We understand the importance of being a digital citizen and also agree that everyone should be a citizen, but being a native is simply a part of being born in a technological era.

    3. It is dangerous for us to assume that there is such a thing as a "digital native.

      Elizabeth and I discussed the difference between being a native and being a citizen and we disagreed that it is dangerous to assume that younger people are natives. This just means that someone is comfortable with technology and is used to working with it on a regular basis. If we start to label everyone as a citizen instead of a native, we are only changing the title because there will still be those that don't understand what being a citizen is. On the other hand, if we have both terms, we can teach the natives that it is important to also be a citizen.

    4. Being a digital citizen is complex

      There is a lot of rules, laws and appropriate behaviors have to be respected, it's not cause you have hugely access to information you can do what you want.

    5. There are many people I come in contact with on a regular basis who assume that any child under the age of 18, were they given a computer, would automatically know how to use it

      To know how to use it you have to be teaching by someone else or seeing someone else use it.

    6. digital native

      We tend to confuse terms. Be able to use a computer doesn't mean we are experts. We all have different abilities with technologies just like students have special needs.

    7. represented by the stereotype

      It may influence the way of being with students in classroom only if we camp on those stereotypes

    8. dangerous stereotypes

      Stereotypes are usually based a "general cases" but it is not for everyone. Also, it doesn't concerns everyone.

    9. Digital Native vs Digital Citizen? Examining a Dangerous Stereotype

      this picture evokes a lot of emotion and prompts me to think of the digital divide, access, and a globalizing world. I'm wondering if the author wants me to feel sorry for this little kid. I'm wondering if this little kid is a wiz. I wonder if we'll learn anything about this kid beyond this image. If we don't, this feels a bit manipulative to me. Reading on.

    10. Are they both dangerous? I'm curious and wondering about the constraints of defining citizenship. I've already thought a good deal about the problems with the notion of "digital natives." I'm reminded of generation like] and the ways youth are portrayed as natives, but as a result, positioned as un-savvy, duped by the media, slaves to corporate marketing and social network likes.

    1. Digital Health & Wellness:

      Elizabeth and I discussed what we thought is digital citizenship, and we covered many of the topics listed here, but we both agreed that Health & Wellness didn't cross our minds. This is an interesting incite that gives us a new dimension of digital citizenship.

    2. A renewed focus must be made on what technologies must be taught as well as how it should be used.

      This is something that educators need to take account when using technology in the classroom. It's important to know what is right to use and what you can leave out.

    11. Legitimate and legal exchanges are occurring, but the buyer or seller needs to be aware of the issues associated with it.
    12. Technology users need to be aware that not everyone has the same opportunities when it comes to technology. 
    1. I think Sarigianides, Petrone, Lewis and ultimately Nancy Lesko's work on the constructedness of youth and all the adult investments in maintaining particular positions for youth deepen the conversation about WHY this happens and continues to happen throughout history.
