At Crestomere School, we believe that our students need to understand that online choices have offline consequences. As teachers and parents, we need to develop a deeper understanding of the digitally connected world and what it means to be good digital citizens. To meet that goal the staff of Crestomere have been participating in a variety of professional development activities that have focused on increasing our awareness and understanding of digital citizenship.
Educational technology is the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using and managing appropriate technological processes and resources. Technology of education is most simply and comfortably defined as an array of tools that might prove helpful in advancing student learning. Those who employ educational technologies to explore ideas and communicate meaning are learners or teachers.
