Hi Valerie,

I am active on social media sites, but am interested to see how this course is going to be run. I'm hoping to learn things I can share with my  4th graders and their parents. I believe learning the in and outs of crafting a positive digital footprint is becoming more important with every passing day.

Hi Paula! I'm so glad that youa re going to join us. It will be a journey for everyone - we are all going to learn together! I'm sure that you will learn lots of new ideas...All of the weekly "lead detectives" are amazing and if you have any specific questions for your class - or parents - please make sure you ask and connect!

Hi everyone

I'll follow through recorded sessions. GMT+2 here. 

That will give me the advantage of having the whole internet, quiet and calm for my detective investigations!

Happy digifooting :)

The good news is that some sessions may be at different times.....the "guest detectives" are from all over mostly Canada...and some United States....

Please check the main page for official dates and times each week. It will be the same Blackboard link every week.....

I am really looking forward to this and hoping that I will be able to keep up as I do not use any social media sites/tools at all, unless I can include the numerous discussion boards I have commented on as part of constantly taking online classes!  However, I LOVE technology, and I love to learn new things, so I am hopeful that this will be an easy way for me to learn how to get started!

Hello from Australia. Interesting subject and one which I have been promoting for many years in both the education and business environments. Look forward to following and contributing where possible.

Hello all from the great state of Vermont! It will be interesting to see what we uncover. I tell my 11th and 12th graders to be careful about what they post online. Now I'll have some tools to back up this warning in demonstration.
