Digital Citizenship in The Classroom

Technology use in our classrooms continues to increase at a fast pace. As educators, we sometimes struggle to find the best way to address our digital citizenship concerns with our students. Creating responsible digital citizens requires more than one lesson. This course will act as a guide for you to develop a positive and healthy classroom environment where digital citizenship is embedded in all aspects of learning. In return, students will be prepared to use technology in responsible and meaningful ways and will understand the power of technology for good and for evil. Help your students become engaged, thoughtful, caring digital citizens.

Why Should Educators Take this Course?

  • Using technology in the classroom is scary. We are worried about what the students might find, see or say online.
  • One digital citizenship lesson is not the solution. Digital citizenship needs to be embedded into all components of learning.
  • We need to create responsible, engaged students who know how to use technology safely and effectively.
  • We already teach students to be kind, caring, compassionate, and empathetic towards others. We need to also teach them how to transfer those traits to a digital world.
  • Partnering with parents is essential for this work to be successful.
  • This course will help you develop a comprehensive plan for implementing digital citizenships into all aspects, crevices and areas of the learning at school.
