Digital Law

With their many hand-held devices, students are mobile, wireless and on-the-go. How do you support productive uses of student communication when it is outside of our local area networks? Situations have arisen ranging from cyberbullying to sexting to cheating in schools. Where does your school district stand on the issue of mobile technology use? How can you balance the benefits of mobile technology in learning with the controls needed to provide a safe environment? A legal expert will address these questions and provide guidance on the latest updates to California education code.

Guest presenter was attorney Jan Tomsky, the managing partner of Fagen, Friedman and Fulfrost's Oakland office. She has an extensive practice with particular emphasis in special education and student matters, particularly those that involve complex or sensitive issues.

This webinar series covered topics such as:

What do Your Students Need to Know in Order to be Safe Ethical Internet Users?

Our students are growing up in a digital world of social networking and texting. That does not necessarily mean they understand appropriate behavior, digital citizenship and consequences of poor choices. What do students need to know? Learn about great lessons and resources to use with students. Consider ideas to implement a campus-wide campaign on these issues. Come away with many resources as well as a survey to find out your students perceptions of these issues.

Guest presenter was Adrienne DeWolfe, Technology Specialist, CTAP Region 4 and CCCOE
