    Hello: This will be my 3rd school year teaching Digital Citizenship to 9th graders. I have been using the Common Sense Media curriculum for many of my lessons. This is our district's 4th year having 1:1 iPads and I feel it is extremely important for students to understand the appropriate and responsible way to use technology. I chose to become a Certified Digital Citizenship Instructor because I have a strong passion for directing students to appropriately manage their online reputation. The choices they make now will affect them for many years to come. It's important for them to hear this information from more than one source, and I enjoy being the driving force of it at my school.

    My students and I are psyched to delve into the curriculum further!
    I'm already seeing positive results in their computer lab use. I joined to increase my own understanding and comfort with online media to help families and students make more informed decisions online.

    Has anyone used "Cite This For Me" (https://www.citethisforme.com/)?
    • Mrs. Peterson - I have not. We use bibme.org or ezbib.com

    Digital Citizenship is crucial for students to be able to fully function in a digitally rich world. As my district has implemented a 1:1 initiative, making sure students are safely using devices has become a top priority. Through the use of digital citizenship lessons my students have become aware of things involving technology, their safety and how to properly use these wonderful tools they have been equipped with. I feel that it is important that I become a certified digital citizenship teacher so that I can lead my students well and help them avoid the pitfalls of navigating this new and exciting world of technology. Helping my students understand what is OK to share digitally, how to avoid cyberbulliying and who to report to if they are faced with such things, and helping them understand that they are now leaving a digital footprint of their lives from an extremely young age, are just some of the crucial things I feel will help my students be wise and effective users of 1:1 devices.

    I was inspired to become a Digital Citizen certified educator in part because my district has implemented a 1:1 ipad initiative. This puts a new, wide open world of possibilities available to my 6th grade students but also opens up a whole new world in which they need direction. I believe the Common Sense media Digital Citizenship lessons address the positive elements of this new technological world such as smart searching as well as some of the negatives such as cyber bullying.
    • Mrs. Blenis - I am looking into doing that as well! I think it is so important. It's on my "to do" list.

    My decision to become certified was prompted by my district's decision to go 1:1 with iPads. Cyberbullying was already a huge issue in our high school and bringing so much technology into the school at one time promised to increase that problem. So we are all becoming certified to implement digital citizenship. In the lesson we used, the choice of "Friday Night Lights" for clips about cyberbullying was excellent. The kids connected with what was being shown and we had quite an enthusiastic discussion about the situations depicted. this then led to them sharing situations which prompted even more discussion.

    I really liked the clips shown from "Friday Night Lights" as a tool to teach my advisory group about Cyberbullying. IT is really important to share this information as some students are so embarrassed by the harassment. They may not have felt it was actually bullying. It is also a great resource for us as educators to show students that what they post can come back later to haunt them or to help them!
