Want to issue a special invitation for this event. It is so exciting that K12 online encouraged live, simultaneous events along with the presentations that were submitted. The presentation (a compilation of various thoughts on Digital Citizenship from the Digiteens) went live yesterday. You can view the full presentation on the k12 online blog and the video presentation is posted below.
Here is the invitation to see these amazing students present, also cross posted over at the K12 online conference:
As part of the k12 online conference 2009 and as a conclusion to the Digiteen Project #3 of 2009, students from Westwood Schools will be presenting their top socially connected sites for kids aged 8-12 (and some that they DO NOT recommend.) As part of Digiteen 2009, these students felt that many sites that are marketed to kids aged 8-12 are not appropriate nor safe and set out to review and test the best. They have been blogging and have a twitter account (@socialsafety) and will be presenting live in Elluminate on Wednesday, December 16, 2010 from 12:15 pm-12:45 pm and answer your questions about their testing experiences.
At the conclusion of the student presentation, from 12:45pm – 1:15 pm leading social internet safety expert, Anne Collier will reflect and talk with students about their findings. Backchannel questions will be included in the conversation.
This is just one of the many action projects of the Digiteen project: A Flat Classroom project. This project will be moderated by Vicki Davis, and led by student project manager, Erin B from Westwood Schools.
