Are you a good Digital Citizen? #AEE100 Engages with the Penn State Teach Ag! Technologist
On Thursday October 16th, Penn State had the privilege
of meeting some awesome agriculture education students from Penn Manor FFA
chapter who came along with their teacher Ms. Diane Glock-Cornman (@DGCornman) for a day of education and fun!
Ms.Diane Glock-Cornman is our PSU Teach Ag! Technologist and
specializes in teaching us new methods of social media and computer uses. Along
with bringing five of her own students, she came and taught a class for AEE 100
on “Good Digital Citizenship”. She stressed the importance of noticing in your
schools the digital divide and how much access your students have to a computer
at home and at school. During her presentation, she also showed the video below
about statistics and facts about how social media interacts with our society
Avengers back row, Penn Manor students front row.
While Ms. Cornman was teaching, her five students were able
to go out and have fun with the Teach Ag! Avengers! They were able to tour
campus, try out Creamery ice cream, get a picture at the lion shrine, and so
much more! All five students came up with a goal of seeing if agriculture education
was right for them and had a better idea when they left campus.
Overall it was a successful day and everyone had a blast! If you have any questions about social media interactions or would like to talk to Ms. Cornman, you can tweet at her (@DGCornman).
