A Digital Citizenship Survival Kit

A Digital Citizenship Survival Kit | Learning | Scoop.it

"It’s a simple little prop I use when teaching Digital Citizenship to our pK-12 Aurora Huskies students, but I think it sends a powerful message. I love utilizing props to try to get my point across to students and thought that creating a kit full of props would be a great way to reinforce a very important topic in our schools."

Teaching digital citizenship is not an easy task. This post explores what happens when you create a toolkit of props and use them to help students make connections to online behavior. Below are a couple of examples (quoted from the post):

* Padlock. The padlock is to remind students to set strong passwords and to set up passcode locks on all of their digital devices.

* Tube of Toothpaste. Imagine the information that you are putting online is like the toothpaste coming out of the tube. Once it is out, it is almost impossible to get it all back in the tube!

As you read through the post  you will find many more suggestions and you may come up with some of your own ideas as to what should be in the kit. If you do make a comment and share them here.

There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

These are information literacy skills: how to find, access and use information.

Pamela Perry King's curator insight, October 21, 2013 9:09 AM

The Big Six taught me a lot on how we assume kids can skim and scan.  We need to take more time to show them how to search.

do your students know how to search, find and curate information?
