In today's show, Alice and I talk about 5 things every digital citizen should know including:
- Three basic internet safety issues
- The need for students to have a positive online identity
- Helping students interact online using the language of success – academic language. (Editor's Note: In my opinion, the way Alice teaches IM speech versus academic speech is powerful.)
- Authentic audience and blogging
