Innovative Learners Series: Model


Welcome to PyxisEdu’s Innovative Learners Series. We believe that every time you walk into your classroom you’re not delivering content, you’re providing opportunities. Every activity you work so hard to plan, every lesson you deliver is an opportunity for learning. This series will explore one of these Awesome 8 Learning Opportunities. Feel free to use individual resources, but to get a more in-depth understanding of this opportunity, we have organized the resources into a logical order.

Collection Description:  

In this collection you will learn about how to model and encourage students to model positive online behaviors. This encompasses a variety of issues including information literacy, digital footprints, and internet safety. While most teachers talk about these issues, is it enough? Learning about any culture often means submersion, and teaching children manners takes ALL adults, not just one adult. This collection will examine how we can bring these concepts to teaching students how to navigate the culture of online learning culture through modeling.

Guiding Questions That You Will Answer:

  • What opportunities can we provide for students to model digital leadership?
  • How can teachers model how to use technology in a responsible way?


By the end of this collection, you will be able to:

  • Know and understand the term "model" and its role in a learner-centered classroom
  • Understand multiple strategies that allow students to be leaders, while modeling good digital citizenship.
  • Explore a scope and sequence for multiple grade-level digital citizenship implementation
  • Examine and reflect on the importance of good digital citizenship and think about ways our teaching practice can act as an example for students
