Parenting in a Digital World: A Course for Parents

In response to requests from parents for resources to assist them in parenting in today's day and age, we have created an online course titled, "Parenting in a Digital World." 

This course contains links to resources from a variety of Websites, which hopefully will provide parents options based on their parenting style and their families needs. We have also added a section on managing devices in the home, which we hope will be beneficial for our eLearning2 parents and guardians.
Attempts have been made to find resources for parents of primary, intermediate, middle and high school age students. Parents and guardians should not feel obligated to look at every resource, but can pick ones that look appealing.
At the end of each unit, there is a reflection opportunity, to write down key concepts to remember, and questions to spark dialog with your child. 

To access the course, go to or use the QR code.

I would appreciate your feedback in how we can make the course better. Take a look, and give us your in the course evaluation at the bottom of the page.

#TIES18 Monday Keynote: Jaime Casap-The Problem Solving Generation

Jaime Casap, Education Evangelist with Google was the Monday Keynote at the 2018 TIES Conference
Jaime helped launch Google Apps, Chromebooks and helped found the Phoenix Coding Academy. He also teaches Communication to 10th graders. 
He authored the book, "On Our Street," a children's book about poverty. He grew up in Hell's Kitchen in the 70's, so he knows a little about the topic.
Education disrupts poverty! All of the milestones he has achieved were based on Education. He was invited to speak at the White House to help launch Michelle Obama's Reach Higher initiative. What we sometimes forget is that the impact we have on students goes on for generations! Since he went to college, her daughter just assumed that she would go on to college. The life his children have comes from the educators that impacted Jaime.
The State of EducationCasap doesn't think education is broken, because it worked for everyone in this room. AND it has changed in the last 100 yea…

Sometimes I Have to be the Fun Police...

Yesterday, I had two instances where I had to be the "Fun Police," in my role as Digital Learning Specialist. It is not a role that I rellish, as philosophically, I want our staff and students to have an authentic experience as possible and utilize tools that may be of benefit to their learning. However there are times, when for safety or due to missuse of a tool, I have to put on the hat and shades...
Case #1
The first instance was when I got a request for a group of 5th grade students to use Prezi as a presentation tool. Now Prezi may not be as popular as it was a few years ago, and some folks wish they had kept their "Classic" tools and format, but it still offers a nice way to make non-linear presentations.
However, for elementary educators, there is another component that makes Prezi problematic: their Terms of Service. Given this restriction, unless the student has been held back 3 years, odds are the 5th graders will not be able to use Prezi for their presentat…
