Empowering Students to be Digital Citizens


Screen shot 2013-10-24 at 12.35.54 PMAs schools increasingly integrate technology, they face challenges with behavioral issues that arise from students, such as cyberbullying, inappropriate sharing, and plagiarism. Digital citizenship is an essential 21st century skill in which students are safe, responsible, and respectful participants in a digital world. In the first webinar for edWeb.net’s Digital Citizenship community, presenters from Common Sense Media share some free CCSS-aligned curricular resources for both low and high-tech classrooms to teach digital citizenship, and how to implement digital citizenship in your school. Kelly Mendoza, Senior Manager of Professional Development, and Louisa Sullivan, Education Program Manager, shared resources for parents on topics such as K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum. The presenters also demonstrated how to use Digital Passport, an interactive learning game for students in grades 3-5 that teaches and tests the basics of digital safety, etiquette, and citizenship. The game is vailable online (free) and in Google Play and the Apple App Store.  In addition to these tools, our presenters shared best practices from schools nationwide on implementing digital citizenship.
