Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Is Technology Impeding Education?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Dr. Jekyll:Riding the wave of technology, more schools than ever are adopting 1:1 programs. Devices like Chromebooks and iPads give students access to social media and educational websites, which are de-facto requirements for the 21st century classroom.

Mr. Hyde:But in the thousands of 1:1 schools across the country (and the world), are these devices actually being used in the way they were intended? Are they contributing to the growing threat of cyberbullying and compromising the online safety of our students? And if so, what can we do about it?

Teachers and Administrators, Join Securly as we discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly sides of technology in education, along with best practices to achieve a safe online environment and optimize the 1:1 experience for your students.
