Digital citizenship is not a one time discussion. It is an ongoing process that needs to be taught to all grade levels and to all stakeholders.
The first weeks of school are dedicated to teaching the basics. You show kids specifically how to act in the classroom. It's also the time to show them specifically how to be responsible digital citizens.
So important to address this first and foremost!

A heartfelt & moving story of how instruments made from recycled trash bring hope to children whose future is otherwise spiritless.
What a wonderful thing! This is a very heartwarming story
One mans' trash is another mans treasure. The typical stereotypes of slums are that they are dirty, poor and lifeless. However, the people in this slum have so much more to offer. Searching through the trash, they are able to piece together junk into recycled instruments that they use to liven the slums, their lives and the world. Music is a way to brighten their today and look forward to brighter tomorrows.
This video was very moving. I was surprised how the recycled instruments sounded exactly like the real things. I think this should make us think about how much of the trash we generate could be put to some use besides rotting in a landfill. It also shows the ingenuity of people to find a use for a resource even if that resource is trash. It just goes to show that the saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” is true.
