Digital Citizenship: Home

Digital Citizenship

Our students spend a significant amount of time in the online environment for both personal and academic reasons, and it is the responsibility of our schools to ensure that students are prepared to participate effectively and ethically. We want our students to navigate safely and skillfully in the digital world to prepare them for job opportunities and success in the global economy.  Having a digital presence is a must-have tool for 21st century career success as much as a resume or cover letter.

School librarians are most attuned to the need for students to receive formal instruction in the ethical and responsible use of information and social networking tools; the addition of the following lesson plans and resources will build on what we already do to deliver robust instruction and assessment in digital citizenship to students.  

Below you will find our revised lessons for 2016!
