Tool 10 - Digital Citizenship

For your Tool #10 assignment:
In YOUR blog post:
1. Discuss at least three things you would want to make sure your students understand about being good digital citizens.
Not stealing content, not sharing personal information, and learning email Netiquette.
2. Share at least one of the resources mentioned above or on the Ed Tech website that you plan to use instructionally. I would like to use some of the Atomic learning devices to help them learn about being good digital citizens.
3. Explain briefly how you would "teach" the idea of digital citizenship to your students. Students need examples. They need to recall when "bad" things have happened to them online.
4. Explain briefly how you plan to share the idea of digital citizenship with your parents. I love to communicate with parents. As we do projects that use technology that may be new to students or parents, it will be easy to send out an email to parents explaining what we are doing and why. It is also a good chance to review Netiquette with parents and encourage them to review it with their children.


  1. Senora Ellingson:

    I think you are a pioneer in the world wide web and great Netizen (it's a step above digital citizenship). Thanks for sharing your assignments and encouraging engagement between parents, students, and teachers. Awesome netiquette.

  2. There are some awesome videos on Digital Citizenship from the FTC. Some are even in spanish. Great job.
