Tool 11: Digital Citizenship

I think that Digital Citizenship is VERY important and I feel that it is something that is often overlooked.  We make the mistake of assuming that since our students know about and handle so much technology that they understand how to be safe and courteous on the internet. Just like the expectations for behavior that we have to set in our classrooms we must also set those for what they put out in the digital world. We must also teach them how to protect themselves and what information they should never post on the web. I would like my students to know how to explore the internet, how to determine the quality of what they find, and how to ensure their safety.

Eleven down, zero to go!
