Approved Proposal:

Digital leaders model lifelong learning as a networked digital citizen.

Digital leaders stay informed and involved so they can pro-actively advocate for the safe, productive and ethical use of technology in Digital Learning Environments (DLEs).

These self-directed learning modules aim to support teachers who are seeking to become leaders for digital citizenship in DLEs by sharing current research and inspiration from various digital leaders; along with practical tips, suggestions and hands-on activities to increase understanding of and develop confidence in leveraging “...the open values, ideology and potential of technologies born of peer-to-peer networking and wiki ways of working” (Weller, 2011) in current and future learning environments.

There are 4 modules to support commitment to digital leadership:

Module 1: Digital Leaders Make Connections

Module 2: Digital Leaders Model Positive Digital Footprints

Module 3: Digital Leaders Practise Digital Fluency Using a Technology Toolbox

Module 4: Digital Leaders Encourage and Practise Ethical Digital Citizenship

Colour coded directions have been used throughout the learning modules to guide individual or groups of teachers through the visible thinking routine of stop&think-wonder-act, to stimulate curiosity and guide inquiry and reflection.

You are encouraged to personalise your learning by choosing your own pathway through these modules. However, if you have not yet set up a Twitter account, you will need to work through Module 1: Digital Leaders Make Connections first.

Once you have completed the four learning modules, you can download and personalise a certificate of achievement that may be recognised as evidence of your ongoing learning in your professional context.

The team members below collaborated in various digital spaces to create these learning modules:

  • A shared google folder was created to contain early brainstorming ideas, shared documents that were used to design the modules, and doc versions of the pages to allow each team member to give specific feedback on the design and content of each of the modules
  • A Facebook Messenger group was established and used regularly for group phone calls and text messages, that were both personal and professional in nature
  • The ETL523 Wikispace Discussion feature was used to question, clarify and share ideas
