5 Ways To Foster Good Tech Habits at School and at Home Using Sonia's Digital World....My New ISTE Article!

One of my favorite ways to engage with students is by supporting and celebrating all the amazing ways we’re connected in the digital world. That’s why at Van Meter Community Schools in Iowa, we teach even our youngest learners to use various technology and research tools, and when we do, we always include important conversations about digital citizenship and media literacy. 
This passion for connection led me to write a book for young learners called Sonia’s Digital World, a joint project I did in conjunction with ISTE and Capstone. As the district teacher librarian at Van Meter schools, I like to create books and resources for our children, teachers and families to support them in the digital world. 
Using the ISTE Student Standards as a guide, Sonia’s Digital World shares all the ways our young students learn and interact with the digital world while at home, school and within their community. As teachers and librarians, we need books and resources that not only help us teach and support our students, but that also spark conversations, amazing projects and cool learning opportunities. 
You can read the entire article, 5 Ways To Foster Good Tech Habits at School and at Home, on the ISTE site here.
