This Thursday and Friday, July 17 & 18, join us for Digital Citizenship: It’s Common Sense. Do you know what type of digital footprint you are creating? We teach our children how to be safe within the physical community, but what about norms for appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use? This class is based on the material in Digital Citizenship in Schools, an ISTE 2011 bestseller. We’ll explore the nine elements of Digital Citizenship: Access, Commerce, Communication, Literacy, Etiquette, Law, Rights & Responsibilities, Health & Wellness, and Security. Seats are still open, register at www.edplus.org today, and we will see you later this week! Cost: $279 members; $349 non-members; two graduate credits available.
