Digital Citizenship

Understanding how we act and are perceived in the online world helps us understand who we are as humans in the twenty-first century. Citizenship has always an area of emphasis for me as a teacher, and constructing our digital presence helps us reflect on important choices.
I have been fortunate in receiving great professional development in this area. I am taking CoETAIL classes, attended the ASB-Unplugged Conference, and check in regularly with TED talks and researches like Larry Rosen.
When our middle school implemented its 1:1 iPad program, the leadership team created a Digital Citizenship camp with four strands: Learn, Protect, Respect and Balance. I helped author the curriculum for the Learn strand. Overall, I felt this experience helped our staff define a common language to engage students in navigating these challenges.
