Even when there are exciting ways that students are using tech in your district or school, it’s a difficult to shape how students interact with the internet, their devices, and other people when separated by screens. Cyberbullying is ongoing, students are glued to their phones, and often feel lost without a compass in a noisy online world.
As an educator, you know that your job involves more than providing quality academic instruction. It’s also about helping students stay safe, be good community members, and become confident leaders. Digital citizenship is a key ingredient for your students’ success.
Digital citizenship doesn’t just reduce the harm that technology can have in students’ lives. It guides them in developing the lens and ability to do great things with technology. Digital citizenship can benefit students' mental health, academic achievement, community ties, and even future career prospects. Impactful education around digital citizenship is two-fold— sharing expert knowledge with teachers, then incorporating proven lesson plans and activities into classrooms.
