1. Discuss at least three things you would want to make sure your students understand about being good digital citizens. That you can be held liable for what you say and put in writing on the internet (facebook, twitter etc..). Parents should have rules and be aware of what their children are doing everyday and on the internet. Also, to be a good digital citizen your communication should be the same on the internet as when speaking with someone in public.
2. Share at least one of the resources mentioned above or on the Ed Tech website that you plan to use instructionally. Some resources that may be used are: Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship Presentations and links from Texas School Safety Center.
3. Explain briefly how you would "teach" the idea of digital citizenship to your students. I would explain and teach the idea of digital citizenship through a variety of resources. I will use SBISD provided resources as well as resources and information from the internet. Paramount to this discussion is the need for common courtesy, respect, and self-restraint. Next, the concepts of privacy, bullying and the permanency of the Internet shall be addressed. Finally, digital citizenship needs to encompass concepts of appropriate behavior and communication.
