Digital Citizenship Week at SEES!

October 19 - 23rd, 2015

A Message from Mrs. Kalicki

Digital Citizenship Week is here and we at SEES are excited to partner with you in supporting our students' growth in this area. As educators it is our responsibility and passion to educate the whole child to be their best self everyday, working toward contributing to improve our global society. The world our students live in is full of digital resource information and regular access to digital devices. Our students use technology to access and share information, play, communicate, and create products which convey understanding and have educational purpose. With this world of information and access comes great responsibility for our students be safe, legal, and responsible through the digital life. Below are several resources that provide information about being a responsible digital citizen. At the end of the day, our students need to THINK before posting something online by asking the following questions:

Is it True?

Is it Helpful?

Is it Inspiring?

Is it Necessary?

Is it Kind?

It's Time to have the Talk!

"Grown-ups dread it. Kids need it. It's time to have The Talk.

You don't want kids learning about the birds and the bees on the playground. And when it comes to navigating social media, online games, smartphones, and the Internet, it's best for kids to get their info from a trusted source. With 92 percent of teens going online daily and nearly three-quarters of kids age 0–8 using apps, having The Talk is an essential rite of passage.

As parents and educators, we want to raise kids to be safe, responsible, and ethical in the digital world. Giving kids a solid understanding of how we expect them to behave -- both online and off -- starts everyone off on the right foot. Plus, it's actually a lot easier than that other talk.
