Self-Paced Course, Instant Access
Because of the digital world we live in, we need to be thinking:
- What does citizenship look like when we take it online?
- How should we interact as educators, administrators, and educational leaders to model responsible Digital Citizenship to our students?
- 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.
Here’s what participants will learn in this course:
Welcome to Digital Citizenship
Meet your instructor & learn what to expect in this course.
Understanding Digital Citizenship
In this lesson we’ll learn about Mike Ribble’s Nine Elements framework and look at ISTE’s NETS Standards, which lay out benchmarks for students, teachers and administrators around becoming a good digital citizen.
Digital Citizenship in the Classroom
In this module, you’ll learn about the most effective ways to nurture good digital citizens.
Helping Students Understand Technology’s Impacts
Technology’s impact on lives today spans a multitude of areas. Understanding these impacts is important to developing good digital citizenship.
Ethical, Responsible and Safe Technology Usage
Understanding how to locate, access, and evaluate content for accuracy is an important skill for digital literate citizens. We will deepen understanding in digital literacy in this lesson.
What they’re saying
The self-paced nature lent itself to being flexible with a teaching life. There are many resources that I have bookmarked and are already helpful in future discussions with other educators. I've started to reframe my thinking around digital citizenship being everyone's responsibility, not just a particular content area teacher's domain.
The course is rich with resources that could be studied and applied into many situations.
