Dear 6th Grade Students:
Special note to 6th graders: Mr. Fryer has already started answering some of our questions. He wrote a blog post on Saturday called, "Digital Citizenship Q/A Video Responses," round 1. He posted two YouTube clips at his site for you to watch. After watching the YouTube vides, feel free to leave Mr. Fryer a kind comment at his blog. I know he would like to hear from you!
Please click the the Comment link below and write your two questions that you have for Mr. Fryer about digital citizenship, online safety, or any other related technology topics. Mr. Fryer is an expert in the area of technology and schools and is looking forward to answering your questions in a live video broadcast in early February. Please read questions that other students are asking prior to leaving your questions. Doing this will help you think of questions. When you post your questions you'll see the option to post using a Nickname. Please use Nickname as an option and write your Protecht username as your nickname.
We will take 5-10 of your questions and make 3-4 short videos to share with Mr. Fryer prior to our video broadcast in early February. Mr. Fryer will be watching your videos prior to the live broadcast. He will then answer the questions when we meet live with him, which we'll try to watch together in Mellowes Hall. Many of the other participating classes will be doing this very same activity. Check the Questions for Wes Fryer page on the Protecht wiki to see questions that other schools will be asking in their videos for Mr. Fryer.
Mr. Fryer has a really neat Blog called Moving at the Speed of Creativity. Surf around his blog to learn more about Mr. Fryer and what he does.
Below you'll find sample questions so you have an idea of what your post should look like:
I have two questions for you about this topic of online digital citizenship:
1. Is it OK for me to IM with another student that I met while participating in this project?
2. What are some of your favorite online communication tools that you are using right now?
