that's funny! phone but never makes phone calls on it!

09:23 - Peggy George
those statistics are really interesting (and surprising)!

This article is REALLY interesting! You'll want to read it! https://www.commonsensemedia.org/research/technology-addiction-concern-controversy-and-finding-balance (Technology Addiction: Concern, Controversy, and Finding Balance)

11:50 - Peggy George
please post any questions you have for Steve as we go along and Lorie will ask them on the mic at the end of his presentation

12:45 - Peggy George
it's so hard to ignore your phone if it's right in front of you and I don't think parents realize how their behavior is affecting their kids.

13:02 - Susie @shighley
In one of my Voxer groups this week mentioned the idea of kids being smarter and happier, and I told him I had learned that from you.

13:20 - Peggy George
that's really interesting Susie!

13:49 - Susie @shighley
Is the information about kids being smarter, happier, etc part of the research on the common sense site?

14:18 - Peg Volak
Kids are amazed that we can 'talk' to others globally. They often won't make it across the Atlantic anytime soon.

14:39 - Peggy George
I love this statistic!! Video games aren't necessarily bad! Many positive outcomes!

14:51 - Peggy George
so true Peg!

16:10 - Peggy George
Since sharing is so spontaneous what are the best ways to teach kids how to make that instantaneous decision so they use it every time?

16:19 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
I could imagine a really smart phone that filters your screenshots before it sends them off...

16:32 - Susie @shighley
Sometimes I send things that I later regret...

16:39 - Peggy George
I don't think teens are really thinking about their digital footprint.

16:55 - Peggy George
I love that slide!

17:17 - Susie @shighley
And in middle school, they are really looking for peer approval

17:46 - Peg Volak
I state their digital footprint is like their footprint in concrete....forever!

17:48 - Susie @shighley
Great idea. Sometimes I ask kids what they are doing on their phones while I am on car rider duty.

17:58 - Peggy George
those are great questions!

18:09 - Susie @shighley
More of them were group texting than I realized

18:56 - Peggy George
Susie, do they set up different groups for their group texting or do they just use the same group for everything they share?

19:38 - Susie @shighley
I think they have different groups

19:48 - Susie @shighley
I didn't know that about online games

19:51 - Peggy George
wow! that's an eye-opener! I didn't think about how that online communication doesn't apply to the rating!

20:11 - Peggy George
it makes sense if you listen to a teen playing an online game!

20:55 - Peggy George
that's definitely an easy out for teens to be able to blame it on their parents so they can save face with their peers.

21:29 - Peggy George
What's a reasonable amount of time for kids to spend gaming each day?

22:21 - Peggy George
I don't usually change my location services settings but I think I need to pay more attention to it based on each app.

23:00 - Eileen
Just had an issue with 4th grade students changing other student's passwords on a study website used at our school.

23:11 - Susie @shighley
So much useful information!

23:15 - Peggy George
7 hours straight with solitaire!! wow!

23:35 - Peg Volak
The more my son would play, the shorter his frustration level with me asking him to do chores, etc! He became a different person!

23:36 - Susie @shighley
Peggy, have you ever spent 7 hours straight in webinars?

23:44 - Peg Volak
Good one, Susie!

23:46 - Eileen
They will play Minecraft for 7 hrs.

24:25 - Peggy George
if you turn on privacy for photos on Instagram doesn't that eliminate all of your sharing there because it's all based on images?

24:53 - Peggy George
hahaha Susie! Not 7 hours straight in webinars but definitely in virtual conferences. :-) good point!!

25:08 - Peggy George
Hi Laura Antichi! So glad you could join us!

25:39 - Peggy George
you really have to pay attention on those sites!! so easy to be tricked!!

26:30 - Peggy George
impossible to read all of that fine print! and also very difficult to interpret and understand!

27:32 - Peggy George
Steve, is there an article on the Common Sense site about the stoplight points re the photos and what can be posted?

27:53 - Peggy George
This media contract is excellent and they have a version for each age group.

28:10 - Peg Volak

28:13 - Peggy George
I hear that question a lot!!

28:35 - Peggy George
how you spy definitely makes a difference

28:50 - Peggy George
trusting relationships are so important!

29:28 - Peg Volak
When my son moved out, I spied just to see what he was up to....he wasn't happy with me!

30:09 - Peggy George
edWeb has an awesome community for regular webinars from Common Sense--all free! You should join so you get notifications about upcoming webinars. http://www.edweb.net/commonsense (edWeb CommonSense community)

30:52 - Peggy George
oh dear Peg. Were you able to get him to understand why you were doing that?

31:47 - Peg Volak
He blocked me from Snapchat, but I still peek on Instagram! I just don't 'like' anything!

32:08 - Peggy George
This was an outstanding webinar on edWeb re media literacy and fake news by Kelly Mendoza from Common Sense. Watch the recording! http://home.edweb.net/webinar/news-media-literacy-building-critical-consumers/ (edWeb webinar recording for presentation by Kelly Mendoza: News and Media Literacy: Building Critical Consumers and Creators)

33:06 - Susie @shighley
My husband is on his phone too much when we go out to dinner! He needs some self-regulation

33:14 - Peggy George
People think they are using their time well when they are doing multiple things at the same time (like watching something on TV and texting/reading messages on FB).

33:25 - Susie @shighley
Good point, Peggy

33:26 - Peggy George
haha Susie! Good luck with that :-)

34:05 - Peggy George
These movie reviews are really helpful, even to me as an adult!

34:21 - Peggy George
they give you enough information so you can make the decision yourself

34:41 - Susie @shighley
I agree!

35:34 - Peggy George
it's kind of "buyer beware" information. You learn pros/cons and then you can make an informed decision!

35:39 - Susie @shighley
I'd like to ask Steve at the end if he saw the 60 Minutes on Brain Hacking, about methods used to hook people on their phones.

36:12 - Peg Volak
I need to watch that 60 Min., I heard a lot about it!

36:25 - Susie @shighley
I also like the way Common Sense does not really "judge" things. They give some suggested age ranges and tell you exactly what features might be sensitive

36:27 - Peggy George

36:43 - Peggy George
I saw that 60 Minutes show and it was fascinating!!

37:23 - Peggy George

38:34 - Doug Henry (San Leandro CA)
Great curriculum - I use in my 3rd-8th technology classes

38:55 - Peggy George
This overview is really helpful!!

39:01 - Peg Volak
That's a fun lesson!

39:38 - Peggy George
their resources are incredible!!

40:22 - Peggy George
You can find all of those resources through this link: https://www.commonsense.org/education/digital-citizenship (Common Sense: Digital Citizenship resources)

41:23 - Peggy George
If a HS student decides they don't like what their digital footprint shows when applying for college or jobs what can they do to change it (both prior posts and future posts)?

41:33 - Peg Volak
Can't hear?

41:59 - Peggy George
I've heard so many good things about Digital Passport and Digital Compass!

42:12 - Lorie Moffat
@Peg - you had lag.

42:13 - Peggy George
Can you hear now Peg?

42:18 - Peg Volak
Yep, now!

42:21 - Peggy George

42:38 - Susie @shighley
I shared that with my students. I told them I went through one and was told I needed to re-think some of my decisions

42:55 - Peggy George
HS students love cartoons :-)

45:41 - Peggy George
That was fantastic Steve! So valuable to get this overview about all of these resources!!

45:46 - Anthippi Harou
Thank you! Fantastic presentation!

46:32 - Tiziana Angiolini ( ITALY)
Thanks a lot. I love the website he has been talking about. Lots of great resources.... worth sharing with educators.(y)

47:00 - Anthippi Harou
Hi, Tiziana!

oh yes! SAMR creator! Ruben Puentadura! https://www.commonsensemedia.org/videos/ruben-puentedura-on-applying-the-samr-model

48:41 - Peggy George
can someone in your group share it with someone else (on Instagram)?

49:06 - Susie @shighley
My students do lots of screenshots

49:37 - Peggy George
I'll try to find that article about the stoplight info for photos

50:29 - Peggy George
haha! start singing your bank numbers :-)

51:27 - Peggy George
what a great point! what you have posted may not be the biggest problem but where else it has been shared!

52:01 - Peggy George
that's really interesting info when you search yourself!!

52:55 - Anthippi Harou
Is there a service/app which gives a teacher access to the sts' laptop screens in a classroom while they are working?

53:06 - Peggy George
this is all such great food for thought (and action!!)

53:48 - Peggy George
a lot of this goes right back to his point about "pause and think" before you click on send

54:45 - Peggy George
just because they are on their devices during a class doesn't mean they are doing something inappropriate. sometimes they're taking notes :-)

55:26 - Anthippi Harou

55:27 - Peggy George
would any of you like to take the mic to ask a question or share something?

55:31 - Peggy George

55:41 - Eileen
Thank you.

56:00 - Susie @shighley
I would, but I see we are past time already.

56:01 - Steve Garton 2
Thank you. This was great.

56:16 - Peg Volak
Thanks so much! Need to revisit the website again. We love the pause and think online video in 2nd grade. We begin class with that song....hopefully they'll stick!

56:32 - Susie @shighley
I thought about what I learned from you quite a bit when I taught things related to digital citizenship this year

57:20 - Tiziana Angiolini ( ITALY)
Thanks a lot. Looking forward to next week's webinar! Have a nice weekend!:)
