District Administration August 2017 - 40

Digital citizens grow up
Susan Bearden, author of Digital Citizenship: A Community Based Approach,
a book for school district leaders. "The
most important filter for kids is the one
between their ears," she says.
Digital job skills
The philosophy at Tolles Career & Technical Center-a specialized public high
school for juniors and seniors in Ohio-
reflects Ribble's perspective. With 22 programs-including agriculture, communications, health sciences, construction and
education-students earn high school
diplomas, industry certification and college credits simultaneously.
Every student receives an iPad at the
beginning of the year and has access to
Netflix, Twitter and Facebook, among
other apps and websites. The only service
that is blocked is Snapchat, says Shane
Haggerty, director of marketing and technology at the Tolles center.
Those sites aren't part of the curriculum. Students learn that, in the real
world, no one will block their access-
they need to manage time spent online

and prioritize work before entertainment.
Spending all day on Facebook or posting
a rant on Twitter during work or school
hours has consequences, such as losing a
job or scholarship, says Haggerty. "For us,
it's workforce preparation, employability
and soft skills," says Haggerty.
Tolles' weeklong digital citizenship
program also has an eye on career prep. It
covers everything from intellectual property rights to managing online trolls and
bullies. Students are also shown how to
curate their social media accounts to better position themselves for college and job
searches. "The aha! moments come when
they realize that if they post and delete
something, it's still going to be out there
for an employer to see," says Haggerty.
During a 2016-17 pilot program, 215
seniors built their own websites using
public platforms such as Wix or Squarespace. They showcased résumés, original
written content, photography and selfproduced YouTube videos. The goal was
for students to present a comprehensive
portfolio for future employers, featuring
a professional online identity that illus-

Teens and social media use
The Associated Press-NORC Center for
Public Affairs survey looked into the top reasons
teenagers ages 13 to 17 use social media and reasons
they take breaks:

Social media makes me feel:
Connected to friends: ............................................. 78%
More informed: ....................................................... 49%
Connected to family: .............................................. 42%
Supported: ............................................................... 19%

Like I always need to show
the best version of myself: .................................... 15%
Overloaded with information: ................................ 10%
Like I am missing out: ................................................ 9%
Overwhelmed: ........................................................... 9%
Alone: .......................................................................... 4%

trates their individual talents and skill
sets, says Haggerty.
On the flip side, Tolles also provides
students an opportunity to disconnect
completely during Tech-free Tuesday
twice a month in the library. Students
play Jenga and Connect Four, and will
soon be able to practice yoga. What
started with 40 to 50 students grew to
well over 80, says Haggerty.
An Associated Press-NORC Center
for Public Affairs Research poll found that
teens who voluntarily take breaks from
social media appreciate their time away,
feel connected to people and relieved to
be offline, even if just for a week. Those
forced to unplug tend to feel anxious that
they're missing out and are eager to get
back online, the study reports.
Day-to-day citizenship
Educators at Katy ISD in the Houston
suburbs encourage students to use mobile
devices in classrooms for lessons and
assignments, and to communicate with
teachers, says Jay Sonnenberg, the digital
learning manager.

65% took a voluntary break from social
media. Because:

Got in the way of school
or other activities: ................................................... 38%
Tired of conflict and drama: .................................. 24%
Tired of keeping up with every post: .................... 20%
Wanted to get away from a former friend,
or ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend: .............................. 5%
I was tired of it, it's stupid or got bored: ................. 4%
Was getting bullied or harassed: ............................. 3%

49%

took an involuntary break from social
media. Because:
Parents took phone: ............................................... 38%
Phone broken, lost or stolen: ................................ 17%
Loss of connectivity due to camp or vacation: ...... 4%
