McNamara avatars

Third-, fourth-, and fifth-graders at McNamara Elementary recently learned about the Baldwinsville Central School District's acceptable use policy for the Internet, safety guidelines for using the Internet, and the importance of protecting personal information while online. After a unit on maintaining privacy, library media specialist Justin Ashworth and teaching assistant Kris McArdell guided students in creating avatars, icons they can post on personal profile pages to identify themselves, rather than using photographs. (From left) Ava Shore, Maren Roy and Ryan Micho stand in front of the bulletin board Ashworth and McArdell created to showcase student avatars.
