Digital citizenship and literacy

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.

Think before you post

A couple of interesting things occurred during the classes.

  1. Only about four students out of eight classes had heard of the term digital citizenship;
  2. the vast majority of students (aged 11 and 12) had Facebook accounts and
  3. 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.
