How I Use It
I used Digital Passport to discuss digital citizenship with my 6th grade students. I created a digital worksheet to keep students on track and to document their learning. We worked through discussing strong passwords, what information to share online, distracting technologies, cyber-bullying, and key word searching. The students liked the animated platform of the program and the games at the end of the lessons.
My overall opinion is I still liked using this, even with 6th grade students because I think they really relate to the animated/game format of the lessons. I like that the program allows for the students to self-pace and everyone does not have to be at the same point/lesson. Some students became frustrated in privacy mission with the jumping game. As they reached higher levels it was trickier to reach the space pads. Some students spent ALOT of time trying to beat and get to the end of the level. It would have been nice to bypass after so many tries or have another way to keep on going.
