Tonight's #UTedChat is going to be a little different than usual. We are so excited to have Dr. Marialice Curran (@mbfxc) the founder of Digital Citizenship Institute and co-founder of the Digital Citizenship Summit leading a discussion about Digital Citizenship. This is quickly becoming one of the most important topics for educators to keep in mind as we move to more and more digital technologies in the classroom and pushing for more of an online presence. If you haven't already followed Marialice via Twitter (@mbfxc) you should probably do so because it will help you to better follow the chat. 

Instead of listing out the actual questions for tonight's chat, here's how it's going to be a little different. Marialice decided she wanted to use a great newish app called Flipgrid that allows you to record short answers to questions and make discussions a little more interactive. But, even with using Flipgrid tonight, we will still have some questions via Twitter like normal. And as always, please be sure to include #UTedChat in your responses so everyone participating can see your thoughts and ideas.

Be sure to visit the Digital Citizenship Flipgrid questions that Marialice set up and have your answers ready. This is the best way to prepare for #UTedChat tonight. But don't worry if you can't leave your videos before tonight because the #DigCit Flipgrid will stay active and open for much longer than even tonight. 


Dr. Marialice Curran is the founder of Digital Citizenship Institute and co-founder of the Digital Citizenship Summit

J. Derek Larson taught 4th and 5th grades at Little Valley Elementary in Washington County School District for 8 years, absolutely loving every minute, before becoming the Educational Technology Director for the Southwest Educational Development Center (SEDC) in Southern Utah. Having completed his M.Ed. with an emphasis in technology, he feels technology is one of the most crucial aspects of teaching because of the way students are excited by and look forward to using it. If educators can find ways to effectively harness technology into their teaching, they will be better able to reach their students and help them catch the excitement of learning. This is one of Derek's new goals as he works with teachers in rural districts across Southwestern Utah. Derek currently serves as a member of the UCET Board and the SUECON Committee.
