Tool #10 - Underneath it All - Digital Citizenship

1. Discuss at least three things you would want to make sure your students understand about being good digital citizens.
First of all, I would talk about being " Web Librarians" and visiting sites and show the students how to read the address to a website after using key words to search a topic. So many people search topics and click on the first site they may see and it may not even be about the topic they may be researching.
Second, I would talk to my students about having integrity when independently searching the web as well as writing and putting presentations on the world wide web for all to see. I would show then the Brain Pop Video that talks about Digital Citizenship. We could then fishbowl out our findings from watching the video.
Last, I would talk about problem solving and deciding what on the web is fiction/ nonfiction. Not everything on the Web is true or credible.
2. Share at least one of the resources mentioned above or on the Ed Tech website that you plan to use instructionally.

3. Explain briefly how you would "teach" the idea of digital citizenship to your students.

I will have a class discussion about netiquette. I do want any students to be trolls and start flaming. Each child will sign the SBISD sheet with the oath on it stating they will use the Internet with the appropriate etiquette (netiquette).

4. Explain briefly how you plan to share the idea of digital citizenship with your parents.
Every year, my students' parents sign a sheet showing they understand the appropriate ways in which their student will work on the Web. This will also be covered at Curriculum Night.
