The Teacher's Guide To Digital Citizenship

Digital citizenship is important to understand for today's students, staff, and teachers. Microsoft has just unveiled a free curriculum that gives great tips and ideas on teaching digital citizenship and creative content.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

Curriculum units to help young people learn about ethical and responsible online behaviour.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, January 31, 2013 4:19 PM

"Four units comprise the curriculum resources. Each unit consists of standalone yet complementary lesson plans that play off a creative rights scenario presented through a case study.

Each unit has 4-6 of these project-oriented activities, one of which serves as the culminating lesson for the unit. Guiding questions help set the expectation for what students learn, and pre/post assessments establish baseline knowledge to gauge student learning. Modification and Extension suggestions recommend ways to abridge or expand the activities within the unit, and provide tips for engaging parents and peers outside of the classroom.

You’ll have to register to download the actual units (PDF format)."
