Teaching our students digital citizenship skills and how to behave in a digital world is part of becoming 21st century students.
Being a good digital citizen means that you know how to think critically, behave safely and participate responsibly and legally with technology and online.
It starts with the Responsible Use Policy for Technology and Computer Use. Our students and parents read and sign a “RUP” that clarifies the school expectations for using technology and use of the internet.
At home it can be helpful to have a Family Media Agreement to create balanced use of media. Click here for a copy of a family agreementhttps://www.commonsensemedia.org/family-media-agreement.
Next, we incorporate Common Sense Media’s Digital Citizenship lessons which are geared toward each grade level.
- Send parent emails with digital citizenship information
- Offer a parents night
- Promote contests to bring awareness (ie. device free dinner night) invite speakers to the school
- Promote with lessons around specific projects/units in all grade levels.
