The Digital Citizenship Student Summit is a hands-on event for teams of students. In this fourth year, our comprehensive approach demonstrates how actions can impact the behaviors of self and others. Students will collaboratively create artifacts that support modeling of good digital citizenship. Privacy and legal guidelines, as well as combating cyberbullying and digital addiction will be the focus. Methods and practices for both personal actions and school wide culture will be addressed by practicing digital wellness and modeling positive online behaviors.
Privacy, Protection and Professionalism are key to the success of our digitally connected students today. We have aligned this event to the ISTE Standards for Educators and Students, and the latest research in digital citizenship. Student leadership teams should include one sponsor (administrator, counselor, student council advisor) and a team of 5-7 student leaders so personal and building action plans can be created. Digital Citizenship resources and books will be shared with each school team.
We are offering summits for high school, middle school and elementary students this year. Click the links below to learn more, and register your student leaders today!

Do you know what type of digital footprint you are creating? Anyone using the web or a mobile device leaves a digital footprint. 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? Because of AUPs and guidelines for Best Practices, school leaders are faced with creating policies that students can follow and teachers can support. As educators, we must prepare students to live in a world without physical boundaries and help them learn how to work with others, virtually or otherwise.
Each year, Digital Citizenship – It’s Common Sense is a popular selection amongst our offerings. In this workshop today and tomorrow, lead by Linda Dougherty, participants will explore the nine elements of Digital Citizenship: Access, Commerce, Communication, Literacy, Etiquette, Law, Rights & Responsibilities, Health & Wellness, and Security.
