ISTE Standard 3: Citizen

Educators inspire students to positively contribute to and responsibly participate in the digital world. 



3a. Educators create experiences for learners to make positive, socially responsible contributions and exhibit empathetic behavior online that build relationships and community.

The following screencast demonstrates the community and engagement built through the introduction thread in my online Introduction to Curriculum and Assessment course. Students were asked to share their hobbies, their intended career, and their favorite video that was less than thirty seconds. This short video built relationships as several students inadvertently shared the same video, as students shared videos of their families, and as they shared giggles over viral videos. 

3d. Educators model and promote management of personal data and digital identity and protect student data privacy.

As an academic advisor at Western Oregon University, I maintain notes on each and every meeting I hold with students via Evernote. This practice models appropriate management and protection of student data privacy as the notes are password protected at all times and allow for secure sharing between users. 


In the student note below you can see that this student is in my "advisees" notebook as opposed to my "transferred to faculty" notebook. She has a tag indicating her intended student teaching start term and an objective list below her (blacked out) name. Below that are various meeting notes. Should a student forget what we discussed during our meeting or lose their own meeting notes, I will often either share the page with them via email or take a quick screenshot. Evernote is a wonderful student management tool, providing one quick and secure location for all my advising meeting notes.
