We want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the Alludo community. We're grateful to all of the teachers, TOSAs, and administrators who take part in their districts' professional development games, and give us great feedback and tips on how we can keep improving.

We're happy to announce that we've just released the first level of our next Alludo-authored PD game: Digital Citizenship for Teachers. This game covers digital ethics, safety, communication, participation, self-identity and literacy, and what this means for teachers and their students. Missions include activities like:

  • Netiquette
  • Exploring the digital divide
  • Creating content
  • Being a digital role model
  • Media messages & biases

This level is designed to give educators an overview of each topic, while Level 2 (coming soon!) will challenge them to implement these lessons in the classroom. We've pulled information from reputable organizations like Common Sense Media, and will be sharing some digcit content from Alisal Union School District, who released their own Digital Citizenship mission for teachers. Stay tuned for Alisal's district spotlight next week!

If you haven't had a chance yet, check out our G Suite game -- we've added new levels, including Google Forms, Sites, YouTube and Chrome. Completion of this game will equip players with skills for Level 1 Google Certification. Most importantly, enjoy your holiday and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
