>1. Is your school/district/SU presently using iSafe curriculum or do
>plan on using it in the near future? Using Now, Near Future? Please give
>the name of school, district or SU
Enosburg has just started with iSafe. We have had two parent nights, and
will be implementing the curriculum in a limited way starting this spring
within the computer classes. The hope is to train other teachers next
fall so the rest of the curriculum can be implemented in other classes
starting next year.
>2. What grade level(s) is it being used at (or will it be used at)?
6-12 definately, because that is the group that I get to play with, but
hopefully the Elementary School will also start using it. Again, we are
hoping for a roll out next year.
>3. Who is (will be) teaching it? Classroom teacher, Librarian,
I will be teaching it in a limited way this spring, but it is designed to
ideally be implemented within the context of other classes. For instance,
the plagiarism lesson should/could be done in English classes, and the
Cyber Community lesson in History classes, the Cyber Predator Lesson by a
DARE officer or Resource Officer... This is what I am hoping for, but it
takes a lot of training. Each teacher who implements it needs to be
trained. Peter Drescher had at one point mentioned the possibility of
doing the training over the ILN...
>4. How much time is it (will it be) taking?
It is designed to be 5 45minute lessons. THere are supplementary lessons
>5. Have you or do you plan to have parental involvement other than
>notification? Brief explanation.
We had a technology Night where kids got to show off their stuff, local
computer gurus came to answer questions, and iSafe sent Kent Gates to do
the parent night persentation. It was successful for a first try...
The presenations are easy, well done, and very powerful. It is a nice
"canned" program that the kids respond to. It is good information that
most parents/kids are not aware of.
