SIG1to1DC Creators

The two responsible for getting this SIG started.

Doug Frankish
Doug is a 4th Grade teacher, digital teacher, and team leader at the American School Foundation of Monterrey, in Mexico. He has an interest in using technology in educational settings to help enhance the learning process. While leading his students through multiple online projects, including uploading content to the internet, Doug has found a need for an increased awareness and practice of digital citizenship. After witnessing cyber bullying and copyright material being used with his own students, he found it was time to take action- especially as next year his students will be 1:1 with laptops. The SIG1to1DC will provide a platform for research and resources. He is looking forward to the collaborative process of promoting digital citizenship in the 21st Century.

Marcie Lewis
Marcie is a Grade 4 teacher at Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ontario. She is passionate about the meaningful use of technology in classrooms, and enjoys participating in online professional learning networks on Twitter, blogging, and keeping connected. Through teaching in a technology-rich environment, Marcie's interest in digital citizenship has grown through examining issues of privacy, cyber bullying, and online safety. She believes that age appropriate discussion about digital citizenship need to happen from the time students are introduced to technology. Over the next year, Marcie is going to begin to examine the use of 1 to 1 iPad's in her classroom and recognizes the importance of integrating digital citizenship skills throughout the curriculum.
