Thank you for sharing, Bonnie. This issue of digital literacy and citizenship is vital. Too often we make the mistake of believing that kids know how to use digital resources effectively because of their exposure t tech at a young age. I believe kids are digital naives, not natives. These resources help address the issue. Again, thank yo for sharing.

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, November 17, 11:55 AM

My interview last week with attorney Stephanie Tuttle about the possible legal ramifications for minors who “sext,” or forward sexts, or harass sexters, sent me searching for a factsheet to help educators and parents know how to talk to kids about staying safe online in a wider context. Here’s the best of what I’ve found. Hope it’s helpful.

Teens move quickly through various social media, so it is more important to help them be safe and responsible rather than try and keep up with them. A digital citizenship program in your school is essential.

15 Essential Netiquette Guidelines to Share with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Essential Netiquette Guidelines to Share with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Safety online | Scoop.it

"Netiquette ( net + etiquette) is the code of proper conduct applied to virtual online spaces. This code is dictated by common sense rules ( manners ) and social conventions. Teaching students about netiquette is just as important as teaching them to use technology in their learning. Crafting a netiquette memo for your class and informing your students about the importance of these rules will definitely help you create an engaging, respectful, and meaningful learning environment where collaboration and diversity of opinions are celebrated."
