Digital Citizenship: Making the Online World a Better Place Starts With You!

Posted by jglassman on

Your students were born into a digital world. They are digital natives who turn to technology to ask questions, solve problems, and conduct most aspects of their daily lives. Just as we teach children to be good citizens–following rules of society–we must also educate and model good digital citizenship.

Safe and responsible use of technology is a major component of a digital citizenship curriculum, as is understanding how technology can contribute to making the world a more positive place through collaboration, creation, and communication.

Recognizing the challenge of finding resources to meet these goals, BrainPOP is offering free access to our Digital Citizenship collection, including ready-made learning pathways that explore topics such as Information Privacy, Media Literacy, and Digital Etiquette. Using BrainPOP’s Make-a-Movie and Creative Coding tools, students seamlessly apply what they learn while enabling you to authentically assess their understanding.  

For support using the Digital Citizenship collection, be sure to explore our Teaching Resources. From a step guide and video overview to rubrics and lesson plans, you’ll find everything you need to get started.
