Reflection: Shared Expectations Myth Madness: Using Technology to Share Favorite Myths (Day 4) - Section 2: Experience Learning


Today, while teaching my students about responding to comments or making comments using the "Comments" button within Google Drive, I whipped out the old phrase:

"If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all."

I ask the kids if their parents have ever used this phrase with them at home, and many right away started nodding and saying things such as, "Oh yeah!  My mom says that all the time!"  I tell the students that my mom used to say that to me all the time too, but really, it's a very good piece of advice!  Whether we're actually talking to someone, or, in this case, working in Google Drive and making comments, it's important that we are kind and respectful at all times.  I explain to the students that their work here, even though it may seem easy to delete or erase, is easily found by myself or our principal, and we look forward to seeing all of the great work they do!  But, just a reminder, we expect that the school-wide expectations we follow each day will carry with us, even into our work in applications such as Google Drive, and therefore, it's important to keep this motto in mind!  With that, I think all students are clear on what I'm expecting and what they can expect of me, and now I'm ready to let students start commenting!
