Ethics in the Information Age: “How Cognitive Surplus Can Elevate the Classroom”

Paint Brushes

As part of Ethics in the Information Age course, Technology Integration graduate students develop school policy or curriculum materials to improve the integration of ethics into student’s digital use practices. Maia Skarphol  and Megan Johnson recently published a webpage page titled “How Cognitive Surplus Can Elevate the Classroom“. They shared it with their district art supervisor who responded by asking them to do a presentation to the middle school and high school art teachers during their Professional Learning Community endeavors. Skarphol & Johnson also discussed a mural project that will involve all of Fargo Public Schools’ art teachers.

Additionally, they will help work on a collaborative project at Madison Elementary School with their MSUM Art Ed professor. This project is a civic collaboration project that involves Madison’s students, parents, community members, local artists, and the Legacy Children’s Foundation.

Congrats to these two scholars for all their achievements! Check out the following links to learn more about their work!
