United Classrooms HAVE “TRAINING WHEELS” FOR TECHNOLOGY
Scenario: My school has computers and most of my students have access to them them at home or at their local library. Technology is infiltrating professional and leisure settings and is now trending in education. My students will eventually have access to social networking tools and many of them already have unsupervised participation on the internet. The safety and integrity of my students’ interaction with the tools of their future would be improved by the provision of “training wheels” that support how they access information and communicate online. The educational and visionary potential that connecting with the world through the internet possesses could be opened more effectively to my students with the guidance of parents and teachers.
How UClass Helps: UClass makes it convenient and possible for teachers and parents to support elementary-aged students in learning safe practices for technology use. It allows guiding adults and students to develop an awareness of the world-changing collaboration that is possible when social networking is used intentionally and educationally.
