Tool #10

Digital Citizenship

1. Discuss at least three things you would want to make sure your students understand about being good digital citizens. 1) The internet is a lot like TV. It has a lot of things on that are useful and a lot of things that are inappropriate. 2) When we are working in the classroom, our time is limited and the internet must have permitters to keep us focused. 3) Blocked sites are blocked from a reason. Either the information is inaccurate or there is something inappropriate.
2. Share at least one of the resources mentioned above or on the Ed Tech website that you plan to use instructionally. There is a good Brainpop video on digital citizenship that is appropriate for 1st graders to understand and discuss.
3. Explain briefly how you would "teach" the idea of digital citizenship to your students. I would bring the language in the Acceptable Use Policy down to a first grade level and discuss what we can do online. An anchor chart will probably be involved at some point. :)
4. Explain briefly how you plan to share the idea of digital citizenship with your parents. I would let parents know that just as they monitor what their kids look at on the internet at home, we are being just as vigilant at school.
