Tool 10 Reflection

It is important to cultivate proper digital citizenship in the classroom for success in my student's futures.

The three most important parts of digital citizenship in my opinion are the use of SBID email, and digital etiquette (formal typing rules and beware of internet bullies and bullying), learning fair use and accurate copyright rules. Be as congenial on the internet as you are in the classroom.

The post on Wes Fryer's blog, Moving at the Speed of Creativity, is an excellent resource for teaching students about proper use of the Internet. I could actually share this with my students as a teaching tool.

Teaching digital citizenship should be done by example. Showing examples and non-examples in class would really ingrain in them what proper internet behavior is.

Sharing the idea of digital citizenship would happen most effectively on a Parent Night. Likewise, I could share with them non-examples and examples.

Yay digital citizenship!!
