When Kim Landrum at Hastings Elementary was looking for a way to reach her second graders to teach them the safe way to use their new iPads, she knew who to contact: Instructional Technology Coordinator, Deborah Trujillo.
“I wanted her to come in because she’s somebody different for them to hear it from,” Landrum said.
The district’s set of rules for using technology and the internet is called the ‘Acceptable Use Policy’. Those words are not easily digestible for seven year olds, so Trujillo created a cartoon video just for them.
“They were excited about it,” Trujillo said. “I presented it to the kids and we stopped after each section and discussed what it meant.”
