Digital Citizenship Workshop

Wednesday 3-6-2019

Workshop for FCS and RHS Digital Citizenship Requirements


Who: Students, Parents, Staff


What: Digital Citizenship Updates @ Workshop


When: Wednesday, 3-6-2019

12:00 Noon - - 2:00 PM


Where: RHS Media Tech Center


Why: Digital Citizenship Requirements for FCS and RHS



We learned recently that workshops must be held by every school as they relate to the requirements for FCS and RHS Digital Citizenship. The first workshop will be held Wednesday, March 6, 2019 from 12 noon until 2 PM. Parents, please park in the front Visitors' Lot, go to the front entrance of RHS and push the entry buzzer, register at the Main Office and then come to the RHS Media Tech Center. If you cannot attend the workshop, please know that we will publish the PowerPoint presentations on the RHS web site and Nest Team web site.


Also, we will be sharing some valuable resources, including required videos and PowerPoint presentations and discussions with many resources provided by the Online Common Sense Media organization. Several student assistants and the Media Tech Center staff will make the presentations. These presentations are to provide more information to assist students, parents and staff as they work together to utilize the Internet for positive, productive and responsible reasons as digitally literate consumers. The students need to know how to select valid and professional web sites to use for their research skills in high school, in college and in their personal/professional lives. This is valuable information to assist our students to become college and career ready. Also, the ethical uses of Online information will be discussed with examples.


The previous school year was the first year for the RHS students and staff to have access to the Surface 3 tablets and an introductory workshop was held the evening before the students and staff received their devices. This year we plan to have two 90-minute workshops that will include time devoted to updates from student assistants, PowerPoint presentations and videos featured by the student assistants and METI along with further discussions.


If you cannot attend the Digital Citizenship Workshop, please feel free to explore many valuable resources, including videos at the Common Sense Media web site.

Some of the topics for discussion and required by FCS and RHS are:


A. Digital Footprints


B. Internet Safety


C. Cyberbullying and Digital Drama


D. Online Relationships


E. Privacy and Security


F. Self-image and Identity



Now that the students and staff have been using the Surface 3 tablets and accessories for more than 1.5 years, we are hopeful that the updates by the student assistants and Media Tech Center staff will be valuable suggestions for the responsible use of Online resources and to help our great RHS students to become college and career ready.
