The Teacher’s Guide To Digital Citizenship - free curriculum

The Teacher’s Guide To Digital Citizenship - free curriculum | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

How you act online is important. Not just because everything is stored, backed up, and freely available to anyone with a keyboard. But because your online reputation is actually just your reputation. There’s really no difference between online and offline anymore.

 

In an effort to keep everyone behaving, Microsoft has just unveiled a new (free) curriculum that’s all about digital citizenship, intellectual property rights, and creative content. It offers cross-curricular classroom activities that align with the AASL and ISTE national academic standards. So far, more than 6,500 people have registered to use the curriculum. No matter how you feel about Microsoft, this free offering is worth checking out. You’ll have to register an account but after that it’s easy to find, select, download, and implement some of the objectives presented.

Five-Minute Film Festival: Teaching Digital Citizenship

Five-Minute Film Festival: Teaching Digital Citizenship | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

VideoAmy explores the topic of digital citizenship with this playlist of 14 short videos on the importance of online safety, manners, privacy, and responsibility.

 

"Digital citizenship" is an umbrella term that covers a whole host of important issues. Broadly, it's the guidelines for responsible, appropriate behavior when one is using technology. But specifically, it can cover anything from "netiquette" to cyberbullying; technology access and the digital divide; online safety and privacy; copyright, plagiarism, and digital law, and more. In fact, some programs that teach digital citizenship have outlined no less than nine elements that intersect to inform a well-equipped digital citizen. It's an overwhelming array of skills to be taught and topics to explore.
