This past week I’ve been working with all of the year 7 students on digital citizenship and literacy. Here are the resources I compiled, with thanks to many of my PLN including Jenny Luca.
A couple of interesting things occurred during the classes.
- Only about four students out of eight classes had heard of the term digital citizenship;
- the vast majority of students (aged 11 and 12) had Facebook accounts and
- more than half of the students admitted to using the internet when they were meant to be asleep.
The feedback was good from students and teachers and a few teachers were going to use the resources with their own children. Hopefully this will help students manage their own digital footprint now and into the future.
