Let me begin with a huge disclaimer.. These posters are not intended to substitute for true, open and honest discussions with kids, nor are they meant to replace the daily modeling that should be taking place in showing kids how to be a great digital citizen through our own actions. I’ve always been open with students. These statements on these posters are a result of discussions that happened within our classroom and most importantly, they are not just some ‘rules’ that I posted at the start of the year and expected kids to understand and follow. Being a great digital citizen is a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. But, in too many classrooms, schools, and homes, it’s not happening at all. Kids are growing up in a digital world, that is a given. But, being responsible with technology use? That’s an option that we can be a part of each and every day. Not just by hanging a poster, but by living it.

Hi, I'm Krissy Venosdale. This website is my little corner of the internet where I share my passion for teaching and learning. Named because I'm inspired by the people I connect with and the kids I've learned from, Venosdale + Inspired = Venspired. I've taught gifted education for 11 years where I developed my love of technology integration, STEAM, PBL, and authentic learning. The world is an awesome place, and we just need to connect kids to it with enthusiasm. I'm a forever learning, connected collaborating, Sharpie collecting, poster making, eternal optimist. I still wish on stars and consider creativity one of life's basic needs... just like breathing.
