Crowdsourcing a Draft of Internet Awareness and Safety for Educators

I’ve been hard at work on a rough draft of Internet Awareness and Safety for Educators. As I shared before, I am producing this for the Laguna Beach Unified School District and the Orange County Department of Education, but the final product will be shared under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 license, so anyone else will be able to use it (if they can make sense of my bullet points).

I will be receiving feedback on this draft from the district IT director after he shares it with his board next week. In the meantime, I thought I should share it here because many readers of this blog are experts in this area… or would be the potential audience for this presentation.

Eventually there will be some brief and easy to read handouts to accompany the presentation. There will also be a version for parents. I also know I’ll need to clean up these slides (and probably cut quite a bit) in the end.

I’m hoping some of you will let me know what else I’ve left out, what I should change, and what you’d like to see from a presentation like this. After all, we’ll all be able to use it once I’m done – and everyone’s students will benefit from a job well done. :)

At any rate, I’m hoping some of you are feeling generous enough – or curious enough – to check it out.

Incidentally, I tried to cite my souces and give credit where credit is due whenever possible in the presentation, but I relied heavily on the work of Will Richardson, David Warlick, and Danah Boyd in particular… so I also want to recognize my debt to them here.

Ok, now the link (11.1 MB):

I’m looking forward to your comments.

UPDATE: Thank you for the feedback I’ve received so far… and sorry to any Windows users who couldn’t see all the images. I’ve posted a more PC friendly version now. This goes to the LBUSD board tonight and then I’ll be making more changes and incorporating your feedback. Don’t hesitate to still pipe in!
