Tool #11 Digital Citizenship

I think the three aspects of digital citizenship that stood out to me the most were:

Internet Safety - passwords and private information
Copyright Laws
Digital Etiquette/CyberBullying

All three of these concepts are important for children to understand as they navigate the web and technology.

I think that I would use the videos and activities from BrainPop to introduce each concept. There are also extra activities that can be printed out for follow-up on each subject. Students could use think-pair-share groups to discuss each topic and then share with the class any questions or comments they had on what they saw.

For music purposes, I would stress the importance of making sure they had permission to use music or music videos before they used them for a project.

  1. Kristi, the music content area is an excellent point for a discussion about digital citizenship with regards to music, music downloads, and music uploads to 2.0 projects.

    As a campus, we'll need to discuss BrainPop so that we don't overuse it with the kids. Isn't it a great resource?

    Way to go on completing your 11 Tools! Welcome to Meadow Wood. I am here to help you, so please ask. Looking forward to "Learning on the Wild Side" with you in 2010-2011!
