A Good Collection of 13 Digital Citizenship Resources

A Good Collection of 13 Digital Citizenship Resources | Web 2.0 and Social Media | Scoop.it

"Jen Deyenberg at Northern Gateway Public Schoolshas created a nice collection of digital citizenship resources for teachers and parents. The collection is organized into sections for elementary school, middle school, and high school. There is a separate tab for parent resources. One of the things that I like about the collection is that understanding copyright has been included as part of digital citizenship."

If you teach digital citizenship in any grade from preK to 12 the site that Richard Byrne discusses is worth checking out. The resources are organized by age (as in elementary, middle years, high school) and there are parent resources as well as resources on copyright and ones for teachers. Each resource is described and with a click you can arrive at the destination!

It is important for everyone to be aware of the impact Digital Citizenship is making globally.  What a great resource for that purpose!
