If you’re like me, you understand that one of your most important roles as an educator is helping your students become good citizens.
No matter where we live in the world, we want kids coming through our school systems to come out and be safe, responsible, ethical members of society.
Well, now things have changed. We don’t only want students to be good citizens of their physical spaces and geographic regions, but now we’re all global citizens, connecting with people all over the world through digital means.

- What is it that learners need to know when it comes to online citizenship?
During this course, we’ll be exploring digital citizenship in the classroom, helping students understand the impacts of technology, and looking at examples of ethical, responsible, and safe technology usage.
Everyone — teachers, administrators, students — need to understand and practice good Digital Citizenship. I hope you’ll join me in this important learning.
