Creating Good Digital Citizens

With all of the technology we've placed in students hands, it's important to continue to teach them how to be good digital citizens. What does good digital citizenship look like? It comes in a variety of forms, and it can be difficult to figure out just how to approach it with students. If you're looking for some resources to help reach students in regards to, not only the technology we provide but also the technology they use in their personal lives.

  • Google Digital Citizenship and Safety Course - This course is geared toward educating the educator so that they may, in turn, educate the students. That's a lot of educating!!
  • Common Sense Education/Digital Citizenship - Common Sense Education has several free lessons separated by age. These can be great units to use with students as they grow.
  • 21 For Students - This site offers several different digital citizenship activities. There are 21 activities geared toward teaching MS students how to be smart, safe digital citizens.

This is a small sample of resources available for teaching digital citizenship to our students. If you can't find something here, let us know. We can help you locate the resources you need!
