07:43 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Marialice is modeling best digital online behavior for her son.

07:54 - Peggy George
hard to believe he's just a 4th grader and he's been doing this since at least first grade--maybe earlier :-)

08:36 - Peggy George
we have most of those links in our Livebinder today :-)

08:45 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Curran has an impressive online resume at 10.

08:53 - Peggy George
I need to find that guest blog post for Angela Maiers and add it to the Livebinder!!

09:43 - Peggy George (The DigCitKids FlipGrid)

09:48 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Has Curran had to work with his school to get some sites he uses unblocked?

09:57 - Peggy George
Please join that Flipgrid and add something!

10:24 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Welcome Laura.

10:24 - Peggy George
Welcome Laura! Great to see you!

10:36 - @bcdtech Maureen
I have 4th grade teachers using Flipgrid for a global project IYLH... so they are familiar with it. I'll show them the digcit flipgrid to see if I can get them involved... altho they are moving in testing stops...

10:44 - Laura Antichi
Hi, Peggy!

10:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Virginia. Welcome to the webinar.

10:52 - Peggy George
Tiziana, I love that you can join us so often!! Welcome!

10:57 - Peggy George
Hi Virginia!

11:13 - Peggy George
unbelievable!! connected learner since first grade!!!!

11:35 - Peggy George
I get tears in my eyes when I hear his story!

11:53 - Peggy George (Follow @digcictkids on Twitter) (Follow #digcitkids on Twitter) (Follow @CurranCentral on Twitter)

11:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I have goosebumps just listening to him.

12:19 - @plnaugle (Paula)
The traditional animal packet!

12:41 - Peggy George
what an awesome story!!!

13:13 - Peggy George (Mother and Son Team: A Tech Expert at 10)

13:33 - Peggy George

13:46 - James Rush
That is authentically awesome.

13:46 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Authenic learning = online connectedness

14:47 - Peggy George
I loved this Periscope by Curran and Marialice! (PasstheScopeEDU presentation0

15:23 - Peggy George
(Mother and son team up to promote positive digital citizenship)

15:28 - "kg"
Will Richardson has reported similar stories with his children, as they have grown up over the years. Yikes...little change!

15:54 - @bcdtech Maureen
How can we build bridges to the islands or in my case silos... of the classroom?

15:56 - Peggy George
I love that the focus is to take charge of your own learning!! No matter what your age!

16:52 - Peggy George
so true kg!! I have heard Will Richardson talk about that many times! Sad thing is that many parents don't know how to advocate for these changes in their own child's school!

17:29 - Peggy George (DigCitKids Pledge)

18:02 - Peggy George
How would you answer that question?

18:16 - Peggy George
How could you use this pledge in your classroom?

18:25 - Michael Drezek
I would ask the students how they could use technology to help solve a problem that exists in their life or the world.

18:28 - @bcdtech Maureen
I use tech to help teachers reach out to other classrooms. We don't actually use it for problem-solving in our community.

18:32 - James Rush
In my Global Events English class to reach out to other University Students with 'sister' schools and see what they are doing/using.

18:43 - Peggy George
the key is not just using technology but using it to make a difference in your community!

18:45 - "kg"
Mike Soskil is an elementary teacher who uses Skype to connect with other classrooms, then the students identify the “o what” next step. On Twitter @msoskil

19:17 - James Rush
Seeing what the "unofficial" poll for the South Korea election.....for my hometown in Flint, Michigan - Water, Water, Water!!

19:28 - "kg"
@MIke: Woohoo! yes. Do you know Mike Soskil @msoskil

19:30 - Peggy George
Skype is such a great way to connect with other classes to share a common passion and ways they are working to address it!

19:40 - Gail Coughlan
we are creating iBooks about place & we could connect with a similar community elsewhere in the world

19:50 - Peggy George (Digital Citizenship Summit Heads To Twitter HQ In October 2016)

19:59 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I followed that story on

20:07 - Peggy George
Thanks Mike!

20:19 - @bcdtech Maureen
At my former school we worked with a school in El Savlador to understand the UN Millennial goals and come up with ways we could help.

20:45 - Peggy George
If any of you have links you would like to share related to digital citizenship please add them to the chat and I'll add them to the Livebinder!

21:05 - Peggy George
Do you have any blog posts about things you have done in your classroom/school for digital citizenship?

21:21 - Michael Drezek
Our Middle School did it in the cafeteria.

21:22 - Peggy George
I saw the Mannequin Challenge but didn't participate.

21:45 - Michael Drezek
I like the idea of the empathy challenge WAY better!!

21:49 - "kg"
@Mike D: cool. Can you share with TIF?

22:03 - Peggy George

22:23 - Michael Drezek
@kg - Hey kg! I will share with TIF :)

22:41 - Peggy George
that's really fun! Did it with grandparents :-)

23:15 - James Rush
Cyber seniors were just raising awareness with the Postal Service!

23:48 - Peggy George
Several of you mentioned that you are using CommonSense digital citizenship resources. They are excellent!

24:14 - @wfryer and @sfryer
We are thinking about doing a parent panel in June at school to talk about screen time limits in the summer

24:34 - "kg"
@MikeD: GREAT :)

24:43 - Casper Pieters #2
Great role modeling!

25:00 - @wfryer and @sfryer
thanks for sharing that link about the DS Summit

25:06 - Peggy George
On April 22nd our guest presenter will be Steve Garton from CommonSense Media for digital citizenship/raising digital kids. I hope you'll all come back to join us for that!

25:16 - Peggy George
haha James!!

25:29 - Peggy George
I'm a Cyber Senior :-) Love that title!

25:38 - Peggy George (Monthly DigCitKids Challenges)

25:41 - "kg"
@Peggy: Me, too :)

26:10 - Peggy George
How can we resist that challenge??? :-)

26:16 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Would love to see schools connect with Seniors in their communities.

26:48 - Peggy George

26:49 - Gail Coughlan
like that generational/community connection idea!

27:13 - Peggy George
should we use both the hashtag and the Twitter ID? @digcitkids?

27:32 - Peggy George (Follow @CurranCentral on Twitter)

27:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Adopt a Senior and help them become a digital citizen during April.

27:55 - Peggy George
If you don't have a classroom you can always do a shoutout to a child, grandchild :-)

28:21 - "kg"
Super use of flipgrid.

28:23 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Unfortunately I tried to have my students respond on Curran's flipgrid but it is blocked at school. :(

28:31 - Peggy George
Didn't know that FlipGrid had a large ASL community! Fantastic!

28:50 - Michael Drezek
This Flipgrid WILL grow. Some Lake Shore students will be on there before the end of our school year!

29:04 - Peggy George
I used to be a principal in a private school for the deaf in MA. Many years ago!

29:10 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I really wanted my Spanish speaking students to see the responses on his Flipgrid. I am encouraging my students to respond at home.

29:13 - @bcdtech Maureen
Like that it goes across platforms!

29:14 - @wfryer and @sfryer
Paula you need a modern day 'web-whacker" solution that can make offline copies of websites, which can either be available when your wifi is cut for testing, or when the site is blocked...

29:37 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, I do Wes.

29:38 - @wfryer and @sfryer
what's the link to that Flipgrid?

29:39 - Peggy George
Lorie will do that

29:48 - @CurranCentral

29:55 - @wfryer and @sfryer
@Paula I will look for something like that for you....

29:57 - @wfryer and @sfryer
thanks for the link!

30:09 - @CurranCentral

30:09 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Thank you, Wes.

30:17 - James Rush
how has the concept of "play" come into this journey...with a lot of research happening - but that would seem to probably be "physical" play.

31:11 - Peggy George

31:14 - Casper Pieters #2

31:21 - @wfryer and @sfryer
You might offer to help do some short digital stories with teachers at Curran's school

31:27 - Virginia McGregor
Maybe administrators will get the message from this webinar.

31:29 - Cari
how can I 'adopt' one of the digcit kids?

31:43 - Peggy George
Wes I know you have some digital citizenship links you could share :-)

32:00 - Peggy George
what a great idea!!! mystery reader!

32:32 - Peggy George (Digcitkids blog)

32:42 - Peggy George (DigCitKids website)

32:49 - Michael Drezek
Have you ever thought about doing a #DigCitKid of the month? It would be neat if students around the globe could apply to be showcased on the site on how they are being that KIND of kid.

33:03 - Virginia McGregor
If teachers keep contact with their projects and the school board that would help the districts change.

33:10 - Peggy George
that is so true!!! wish all students could have teachers that saw value in connected learning!!

33:17 - Peggy George
I agree Virginia!

33:33 - Peggy George
I love that idea Michael!!

34:11 - Peggy George
so frustrating that schools block so many of the tools that would support this kind of connecting and sharing!

34:14 - @wfryer and @sfryer
These short "B side" videos can be recorded, edited and published readily on iPads and can be a great way to open doors for using iPads as content creation tools. There are several on this YouTube channel from my previous school:

34:16 - Virginia McGregor
Go to every school board meeting and present an activity at every meeting.

34:22 - Peggy George
Thank you so much for sharing your experience, Paula!

34:34 - James Rush
I have the is a "code no longer active and cannot be found"

35:15 - @wfryer and @sfryer
@Peggy I need to collect the digital citizenship resources that we've been gathering.... I'll drop some links now tho!

35:19 - James Rush
I remember attending a school board meeting as part of assignments in high school Civics class....whoa! nowadays if that could be done?!

35:20 - Virginia McGregor
You have a 3min. presentation speaker time at most school board meetings

35:27 - Gail Coughlan
this webinar could be used for a powerful educational opportunity for colleagues & school board members

35:37 - @wfryer and @sfryer
I definitely agree being a "connected learner" is an essential part of digital citizenship for both young students and adults!

35:40 - @bcdtech Maureen
@James this is working for me

35:46 - Virginia McGregor
Invite the school board to your school to see what you are doing.

35:54 - Peggy George
Great Wes!! Thanks a lot!

36:20 - @wfryer and @sfryer
This framework for digital citizenship by Providence Day School in North Carolina is fantastic and 1 of the best resources we've found... it's CC licensed too:

36:20 - Peggy George
Yes Maureen! That link works! Thanks!

36:49 - Peggy George
what a positive message!! from stress to success!!!

37:02 - @wfryer and @sfryer
you are never a prophet in your own land

37:14 - @wfryer and @sfryer
this is the reality of the world...

37:37 - James Rush
@bcdtech Maureed - Thanks!

37:40 - @wfryer and @sfryer
Matt Scully is 1 of the main authors of the PDS digital citizenship framework, gr8 #digcit thought leader to follow:

37:46 - Peggy George
Please share any links that are helpful for teaching digital citizenship here in the chat and I'll add them to the Livebinder!

38:00 - Peggy George
Thanks a lot Wes! Great links!

38:16 - @wfryer and @sfryer
I'm excited to be attending the ATLIS conference in LA in a couple of weeks, where @mattscully is doing a half day #DigCit session

38:45 - Peggy George
lucky you Wes!!! Tweet and share resources from the conference :-)

38:51 - Virginia McGregor
I have seen a school district change its support for at least 5 different educational benefits for kids through bombarding of information and educating the school board and administration.

39:15 - Peggy George
the teacher is sooooo important!

39:27 - @wfryer and @sfryer
Using technology to amplify innovation in schools is 1 of the most positive, disruptive ways to advocate locally

39:34 - Casper Pieters #2 Team Savv-i The 10 Secrets of Cyberspace

39:41 - Peggy George
what a great point! he loves to learn even if he doesn't like school!

39:47 - Peggy George
Thanks Casper!

40:12 - James Rush
Thank you for the answer. I was maybe going towards...."gamification" play and how the games are vetted, etc....What do the kids say are happening with "online play". Is there a difference to engagement?

40:15 - Peggy George
Casper, would you like to get on the mic to share your book? Tell us about it :-)

40:23 - @wfryer and @sfryer
Has Curran plugged into any EdCamps in your local area? Maybe you all should help organize a local PLAYDATE meetup? More info on Playdates is on

40:31 - @bcdtech Maureen
or you could flip it around and have the digcitkid be the ambassador

40:37 - Virginia McGregor
make a video clip of 1 min and send to school board and administration...

41:04 - @bcdtech Maureen
Bring Curran to #edcampCT this summer!

41:21 - Peggy George
Marialice, please share the link for the UK digcit day. :-)

41:25 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Could a #digcitkid do a webinar once a month on a platform like BBC and other classrooms could connect or watch archive if they can't at the time of the actual webinar?

41:28 - @wfryer and @sfryer
I think bringing in parent guest speakers to the classroom via Facetime is a gr8 idea for helping promote more constructive digital tech use... local digital connections. Newspaper would probably cover that positively!

41:28 - Casper Pieters #2
Only if there is time

41:51 - Virginia McGregor
have a business lunch at your school, invite the administration and school board with a panel of your students and present...

42:08 - Peggy George
talk about Minecraft Curran!!!!

42:13 - James Rush

42:29 - @wfryer and @sfryer
Yes Minecraft and MinecraftEDU is awesome! We use it at our school and have teachers doing great projects

42:32 - Casper Pieters #2
Minecraft EDU is brilliant

42:34 - James Rush
*(even the zombies)

42:53 - Casper Pieters #2
I've used it to teach math

43:14 - @wfryer and @sfryer
Our 7th grade Spanish teachers are now labeling their Minecraft built world with labels and signs.

43:17 - @bcdtech Maureen
Love breakout!

43:21 - Michael Drezek
We use Minecraft Edu for this. Great way for kidsto create their own "world" rules. Especially with griefing. They are empowered to create!

43:30 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My students love BreakoutEDU.

43:45 - Casper Pieters #2
There were some kids that mapped the entire Tolkien bookscape in Mindcraft

43:48 - @wfryer and @sfryer
Last summer we had students design a breakout challenge in Minecraft!

43:48 - Peggy George
DigCit Summit:

43:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Can we have that link, Mike?

44:10 - @bcdtech Maureen
I think Jody Meacher did a dig cit breakout... if I remember correctly

44:34 - Michael Drezek
Yes! Points in Belouga are making change for good around the world.

44:35 - Cari
How can I become certified as a Digital Citizenship Learning educator? Is there such a program?

44:36 - Peggy George
love that idea Wes! Can you take the mic to share about your Breakout? We have Adam Bellow coming on next week to share all about BreakoutEDU! :-)

44:53 - Peggy George
keep those questions coming!! they are fantastic!

45:03 - @wfryer and @sfryer
we've had students make 3D designs of Roman buildings and structures, using TinkerCAD, and then brought those into Minecraft to explore and discuss via a screencast

45:17 - Michael Drezek
Belouga has some awesome student empowering updates coming!

45:19 - Casper Pieters #2
Cari - CommonSense Media provides certification

45:29 - Peggy George
if you'd like to take the mic to share a comment or ask a question please raise your hand. :-) 3rd icon that looks like a hand.

45:32 - @wfryer and @sfryer

47:27 - Peggy George

47:30 - Michael Drezek
This was a MinecraftEDU project we did globally with a school in Italy, Australia, Japan, Canada and US.

47:50 - Peggy George
Hooray Casper! You're next!
