Students working on a project

Mrs. Reindl has been going into the 5th grade classrooms teaching about digital citizenship.  This week's lesson is about our digital footprint.  Mrs. Reindl read the book "The Technology Tail" by Julia Cook where students learn that everything they post online becomes a part of their digital tail.  Students then designed their tails.  Placed stickers for everything good they have posted, bandaids for anything they posted that might have made someone feel bad (even if that was not what the post was meant to do) and cut holes in their tails for sharing personal information.  Students then learned to put on their THINK gloves before posting.  So, they drew hands and wrote the word think - T=TRUE H=Helpful I=Inspiring N=Necessary K=Kind.
