NEW Interactive Safety Resource!!!

The Wisconsin Department of Justice's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Department of Public Instruction is teaming up to keep families safe online.

The departments have launched a program called "Interact!" that will give parents resources to have conversations with their children about internet safety.

Interact is an online, interactive e-course created for parents and guardians to complete with their children with the goal of sparking basic online safety discussions in the home. This 30-minute module provides parents with the opportunity to review their own tech use to set a good example; interactive activities to complete alongside their children, and follow-up resources and activities to keep the discussions going.

This e-course gives parents the opportunity to set themselves up as the trusted adult in their child’s life. If the child sees something online they don’t understand or that makes them uncomfortable, they know they have someone to reach out to. The e-course even provides some ideas on how to start and continue these discussions, along with some bonus tips to help break the ice on awkward topics!
Be your child’s trusted adult. Interact, and stay safe!

Another great Global Math Collaboration with our Czech Republic classmates. We taught each other methods we use to create linear equations. My students loved learning how to use the system of equations to create linear equations. We also shared with each other fall and winter celebrations. We are looking forward to more collaborations in the new year. Thank you Hana Ulíková!

WTI Top Takeaway -- I've already ordered the Pip device that I first heard about at the session on Universal Design by Cassie Frost! I have a Donors Choose project up and running to try to get another one for my students so they can learn to manage their stress and become more-self aware of their triggers and how to calm down once they hit! I have lots of other great ideas swimming around in my head too, but that one is the one I'm most excited for!
