I looked forward to taking this course to build my understanding of Professional Ethics and possible legal implications...This upcoming year Act 49 will require the integration of professional ethics and couldn't have found this course more relevant for the time."
"I also shared many of the resources with my administrative team and held a modified PLC with them. They found it beneficial to review the PA Code of Conduct and quite honestly, some were not aware of the MCEE."."
These lessons are essential to all grade-level students since the digital world is where we interact and leave our footprints.
The weakness is that many of my students need more time to discuss these issues since they live in this world 24/7. As a Social Education teacher, I can build upon this type of lesson and look forward to working it into next year’s curriculum.
I found members of the PLC to find our discussions to be beneficial for all staff, especially the newer staff. Furthermore, the members shared that the discussions that we had..., were eye opening and as a result, the members suggested that we as a team should present and discuss the PA Code of Conduct and the MCEE at the Teacher In Service Meetings at the start of the school year.
The PLC was an effective method to explain our professional responsibilities in MCEE and the PA Code of Conduct because it allowed us to learn together and share a sense of professional responsibility."
"Instead of being told right and wrong, we were able to read the standards and give examples of appropriate professional practice from our experiences."
