Questions from #UTedChat on October 28th - #DigCit Doesn't Have to be Scary

I have long been a fan of Twitter chats and most especially #UTedChat which happens every Wednesday @ 9pm Mountain Time during the school year and occasionally during the summer as well. While I haven't been as active a participant with my #UTedChat crew, I was lucky enough to moderate on Wednesday, October 28th on the topic of #DigCit Doesn't Have to be Scary. Now, I chose this topic for many reasons, but a couple included the fact that the chat happened right in the middle of Media Literacy Week and the week before was Digital Citizenship Week, so it made perfect sense to play into those ideas. There is another large reason I chose this particular topic because I have always felt very strongly about its importance for students (and adults) to better understand and practice. And as this year has been so wild and crazy, I felt it was a great topic since so many schools around the state of Utah, the USA, and even the world over was relying so much more on technology it just made sense. 

I am always amazed by the responses that come from the #UTedChat participants and this week's chat was even better. I walked away from the chat feeling that I had been through a multi-hour clinic on the importance of Digital Citizenship as well as gathering some excellent firsthand tips for better integrating it into my lessons and daily teaching life. You can read through the full Wakelet archive, thanks to Jared Covili (@Covili) for putting it together. But I wanted to include the full list of questions I used in the hope they can inspire you to take a few minutes to think about how you can more fully integrate Digital Citizenship ideas into your teaching life. 

I also wanted to include the full list of questions here so I could link to it for Episode 167 of the House of #EdTech podcast. I have been the substitute host for the show since Episode 164 when the host, creator, and friend, Chris Nesi needed to step away in an effort to help find some balance in his life with all of the new constrains the COVID-19 pandemic has placed upon the world and his family in particular. You can learn more about that specifically by watching his scope from the #PassTheScopeEDU event on Thursday, October 15th. While I haven't posted anything about this incredible opportunity here on the site yet (let's be honest, I haven't posted ANYTHING for a LONG TIME) I do plan to write up a bit more shortly. 

Enough of the backstory, on to the questions from the chat!
