If you are interested in booking me (Wesley Fryer) for a presentation or workshop (either face-to-face or over video) please visit my Speaking page on www.speedofcreativity.org/speaking.


Update 25 August 2010:

In 2010 I am transitioning to the website wiki.wesfryer.com for my handout and presentation/workshop links. I'm not taking content here on PBworks offline, but I have added this "update header" to all my pages as well as adding direct links to more updated versions of these pages as I mirror them / create them on wiki.wesfryer.com. There are 146 pages here on teachdigital.pbworks.com. - You can browse these in page view in addition to using the four category links provided on the homepage. Note this wiki was previously mapped to "handouts.wesfryer.com" but that domain mapping is no longer available.


Stay updated on my latest posts by following me on Twitter, my blog ("Moving at the Speed of Creativity") and Facebook.

Digital Citizenship for Digital Natives


A lack of fear to use digital devices does not necessarily correspond to an ability to appropriately and ethically use those digital devices for communication, collaboration and publication. We live in the "publish at will" era, when anyone with a cell phone or a computer can become a citizen journalist for an international audience. Simply banning cell phones and network access to MySpace is an insufficient response on the part of school leaders to these challenges. In this session we'll highlight the technologies and issues which make conversations about digital citizenship essential in every school and home, as well as ways classroom teachers, administrators, and parents are helping students PRACTICE as well as develop digital citizenship skills. Like a person learning to swim, it's essential we be willing to "get wet" with our personal use of social networking and digital publication technologies if we are to understand these tools and environments.
