Are You and Your Students Responsible Digital Citizens?


As educators, we are expected to promote and model digital citizenship and responsibility.  In this session, we will explore excellent informational websites for all ages, lesson plans, videos, and games that raise awareness of what it means to be a citizen on the continuing digital journey.

What is Digital Citizenship?

It is using technology appropriately.

Law and Ethics 

There are Federal Laws that say we must teach our students to be safe users of techology and protect their privacy.  There are also laws that require schools to have an Internet safety policy, ways to monitor online activities of minors, and a system to block offensive material.


There  are also ethical issues in the use of technology.  Not only do we have to take into consideration how we use technology, but we also have to consider how what we do affects others.



The Internet can be extremely useful, but it can also be harmful to its users.  Keeping yourself and your students safe should always be a high priority. Here you will find resources for understanding how and why it can be harmful and ways to teach Internet safety.



With information being so easily available, it is important to know the legal issues of using that information. This section offers resources  for understanding copyright and how it affects educators and students, as well as ways to teach students about copyright.
