Teaching students 10 tips for proper online etiquette

It is important for teachers to teach students how to interact appropriate whilst online and use proper online etiquette.  On the right of this blog page you will find a few ICT checklist skills that relate to this area and supporting activities for teaching it.
Here is another good list of online etiquette or netiquette skills to teach students. Why not set up a padlet for the class to discuss a topic relating to your course (see a previous blog post on how to set up a padlet easily for your class to use) and then get them to show their understanding around netiquette by following the skills shown here:
http://elearningindustry.com/10-netiquette-tips-online-discussions . By doing this you can assess quite a few of the checklist skills in a lesson.

Nearpod.com : The perfect 1:1 Student response tool

With so much emphasis being placed on formative assessment in our BYOT classrooms these days there is a necessity for teachers to use 1:1 student response websites with their students and their own devices. Www.nearpod.com is the perfect tool. Teachers can sign up for a free account and these produce interactive presentations for all students in the class to participate in. Students go to nearpod.com and enter a pin and their first name. The teacher then release each slide to all the students devices simultaneously. The Teacher can then see all their students answers on the same webpage. It is great. I could write a book about it. Have a play with it and find out why you cant teach without it. It is similar to www.kahoot.it but it has more functionality as teachers can place diagrams and worksheets on it for all students to write and draw on. If you liked kahoot website you will love Nearpod. Students do not need to sign up to use it. There are thousands available for use straight away or make your own presentation. Commonsensemedia organisation even has nearpod presentations you can use.
