Digital Citizenship Week

Digital Citizenship Week is upon us once again! Below are the plans for my district as we recognize the skills and dispositions that lead to good digital citizens.

Digital citizenship can be defined as the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use. When discussing digital citizenship we often focus on one of the 9 Themes: access, commerce, communication, literacy, etiquette, law, rights and responsibilities, health and wellness, and security. This week will focus on Digital Citizenship as a whole:

Teachers

Elementary Students
  • Video on the school site: Super Digital Citizen.
  • Grades K-2 will practice being a good neighbor in the computer lab.
  • Grades 3-5 will discuss how to share our opinions respectfully (anytime, but especially online), how we feel when someone disagrees, identify appropriate ways to respond, and decide when to involve our trusted adult.

Middle School Students
  • Video on the school site: 458 minutes
  • During advisory, middle school students will determine the rights and responsibilities of digital life and consider appropriate responses to real-world scenarios.
