Implementing Digital Citizenship District-wide


Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 5.49.54 PMHow can a school district educate each and every student to be a safe, responsible, respectful digital citizen? In the Digital Citizenship community’s last webinar, attendees learned how Kent School District in Kent, Washington is teaching 28,000 students digital citizenship skills every year. Greg Whiteman and Laurie Kirkland shared how Kent created and implemented its own digital citizenship scope and sequence for grades 1-12, training teachers at all grade levels and having them teach digital citizenship across content areas. Greg and Laurie also shared how Kent has educated and engaged parents, including details about their yearly tech expo. They discussed the entire journey of this program, from its launch in 2011 right through 2014 when Kent was the first district to be certified in digital citizenship by Common Sense for their large-scale work on integrating digital citizenship. View the webinar to learn how to help your district integrate digital citizenship and create a positive school climate around media and technology.
