Digital Citizenship: It’s Common Sense

The CharacterPlus National Conference has added another full day pre-conference workshop on Tuesday, July 26!

P05: Digital Citizenship: It’s Common Sense

Full Day Workshop, 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

Presented by Tami Bopp, Director of CharacterPlus Programs and Stephanie Madlinger, Director of Educational Innovation/METC, EducationPlus

Workshop Grade Level: K-12

Do you know what type of digital footprint you are creating? Are your students aware of how their online actions affect themselves and others? We teach our children how to be good citizens and safe within the physical community, but what about norms for appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use? As educators, we must prepare students to live in a world without physical boundaries and help them learn how to work collaboratively with others, virtually or otherwise. During this full day workshop, we will explore the nine elements of Digital Citizenship: Access, Commerce, Communication, Literacy, Etiquette, Law, Rights & Responsibilities, Health & Wellness and Security, based on Mike Ribble’s book, Digital Citizenship in Schools. Come with your laptops and mobile devices, so we can practice safe, ethical behaviors together. Leave with ideas for Respecting, Educating, and Protecting yourself and others.

The resources will include Digital Citizenship in Schools, 3rd Ed. (each registrant receives a copy), Common Sense Media activities and lessons based on the ISTE standards.
