Digital Citizenship Lessons
The Child Internet Protection Act (July 2012) mandates that districts have in place programs which educate students about “appropriate online behavior including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms, and regarding cyberbullying awareness and response.”(See EGUSD Digital Citizenship wiki/CIPA and E-Rate requirements) Districts must be teaching digital citizenship.
This Thursday, October 8th and Friday, October 9th, our students will be participating in Digital Citizenship lessons from Common Sense Media. Thursday’s Digital Citizenship theme is Cyberbullying while Friday’s lessons will focus on Digital Footprint. Seventh-grade and eighth-grade classes participate in different lessons. Common Sense Media provides informational sheets for parents so they can discuss these topics at home. The parent tip sheets for Thursday and Friday's lessons are attached to this news item.
