We decided to use edmodo, a closed social network for schools. We created accounts and discussed how we would interact on this network. We agreed we would use it purely for educational purposes and came up with a Digital Citizenship Agreement. Among other things we agreed we would
- not post pictures of our friends without permission
- report any nasty comment to the teacher and not respond to it
- check our spellings before pressing reply or post
- give out as little information about ourselves as possible when ever online
After creating accounts we edited our account settings. We had some fun changing profile pictures and told the class about our choices. See below a snap shot from our edmodo group.
