What does a model digital citizenship school look like? In this webinar, presenters shared the comprehensive K-8 digital citizenship curriculum and parent program implemented at The Meadowbrook School of Weston, which has been Digital Citizenship Certified by Common Sense Education.
How do we guide kids to think critically, have moral sensitivity, and make ethical decisions in digital spaces? How do we help them think not only of themselves, but also about the impact of their actions in the digital world on others? Principles of character education intersect strongly with digital citizenship education.
We live during a time of unfathomable, roller-coaster innovation with no braking system. While the ride is exciting, it moves so quickly that we typically don’t have time to think about the possible unintended consequences that might accompany it. The result is that we find ourselves unable to effectively respond to hot-button issues like cyberbullying and sexting because they seem to come out of nowhere.
