    It's been said: "Reputation is what people perceive you to be, and Character is who you really are". Although I am most interested in teaching students to have good character in their face to face interactions with others, it is increasingly important that we devote some time to our online reputation. Those who practice respect, responsibility, kindness, fairness face to face, will be more likely to do the same online. Digital Citizenship is a priority at Mike Davis Elementary School and specifically in our Technology classes. We have incorporated the Digital Passport training program as a way of enhancing our existing character development lessons.

    Technology is an ever changing and evolving thing in today's children's lives. Not only is it the parents responsibility to instill good values and morals in regards to using technology but as educators we too can help by informing, modeling, teaching, how to utilize technologies and to be safe while using these tools in their lives. It's vital they learn good foundational skills early in life so it will hopefully carry them through life making good decisions on their own once they mature and become adults. Becoming a Digital Citizenship Certified Instructor and having our school become a Digital Certified Citizenship School will help to do just that. It reinforces the modeling, the pride of doing what is RIGHT in a world where so much often isn't. Students can feel accomplished and good about their knowledge gained in using technology tools correctly in this world.

    We are in our 2nd year using Common Sense Media and this year the addition of their curriculum on Nearpod has been a wonderful new tool to use. Great to use to conduct class lessons and get immediate feedback while keeping students focused and on task. If you haven’t used it or other Common Sense Media I’d highly recommend you take a look at it. Parents, students, and educators all can benefit greatly by using it, implementing and reinforcing key points whether they be at school or home. Hopefully it will translate into a lifelong use ot technology and doing so in a responsible and safe manner.

    Do you have a Twitter, Instagram or Facebook account for your classroom? Who contributes to it: you or your students? This is an interesting read for why you may want to give some ownership to your students. What do you think?

    My school used technology on a daily basis and each student has their own chromebook. I felt that if we are going to give students these tools, then we must teach them how to use them responsibly. There are many traps out there that young people can fall into on the Internet and I believe, as teachers, that we can educate them on how to stay safe, act appropriately, and protect their private information from people who may be trying to take advantage of them. We can also teach our students how to obtain and use information correctly that they find on the Internet.

      there are a multitude of teacher-orientated blogging sites and communities for such things to be posted.

      This is a community of over 10,000 educators, with a focus on digital citizenship. I agree, not for random thoughts but, as you said, ideas or suggestions (in this case why it's important to integrate digital citizenship). I hope you continue your participation, Mr. Parkes and join the positive discussion.

      As long as it is not random thoughts, I will be fine, and enjoy it. The original post was a random thought, and it is being done by quite a few people.

    Understanding that students today are vastly different than students of even 5 year ago. They come to school with considerably greater skills in technology, and with even greater expectations of what school should be. They have discovered different ways in which they learn, that do not necessarily align with traditional teaching and learning practice, and we must adjust and grow along with our students.

    It is vital that students understand and become educated on how to use the internet safely and correctly. Common Sense's teacher friendly lessons made it easy for the teachers and staff to promote these core values as part of the Johnson School Culture.

    At St. Bernard we will continue to implement the Digital Citizenship curriculum throughout the school year to show our commitment to a safe, responsible, and respectful use of technology by our students. So far the response has been great by our students, teachers, and parents.

    I am a preservice teacher from the University of Alberta and I am in educational technologies class. Wanted to get some fellow teachers opinions on a topic we are discussing in class. This is a question we were asked, let me know what you think.
    Teachers are sometimes held accountable for the cyberbullying that goes on among their students. To what extent should teachers monitor digital communication between students both inside and outside school property, inside and outside of school hours, and using both school owned and student-owned devices that are on school property? For example, should teachers be monitoring their students' Facebook and Twitter accounts? Should schools be able to check student mobile devices just like they check lockers?

      Its a very dificult question and I have to point to a solution outside that box. One can debate, with little sucess, what immediate approch to solve that problem (and yes but just in presence of some evidence or complain for that fact of bulling). But the main thing to tackle is human respect in every form. That is not school responsability but school can make an impact in families and society engaging parents, public institutions and ngo in that fight against that form of violence. Because that is a form of primitivity we should fight it with education (not the one we are περισσότερα...

      I think it's important that the school have a strong Acceptable Use Policy and Respectful use policy. The students should be required to read and understand these policies. They should have classes in digital citizenship that include understanding of cyberbullying. Parents should also be responsible for knowing and understanding the AUP and RUP and helping their children.

      It is impossible for any teacher to monitor all the online activities of all his or her students. However, on campus the internet can be filtered. Also, teachers can monitor forums that

      I agree with you...We have to make sure that everyone is on the same page. We are very lucky that our district has made it district wide and has obligated everyone to have those difficult conversations with students, parents and teachers. At my school students have received a minimum of 3 classes varying from Cyber bullying, Safe Talk Online and Which Me Should I be. Parents and teachers have also attended training on the importance of digital citizenship because it is everyone's responsibility to ensure that students know right from wrong.

    I am so excited to be a part of the Digital Citizenship Educator Certification cohort offered through the San Diego County Office of Education! As a Curriculum Resource Teacher, I have been responsible for teaching Digital Citizenship to the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students at my school. I have learned so much in just the first week of this course. For example, I have learned the importance of including all members of my school community in teaching students to be responsible digital citizens. I look forward to working with my school's leadership team and PTA to create a vision for our school. I will also work with my district's Instructional Services department to create a vision for the district.

    Have you seen your students crafting the perfect social media persona to showcase online, even if it doesn't reflect their reality? Or comparing themselves to another students' posts and pictures?

    A recent article posted on The Next Web stated: "Buried deep inside social networks is a phenomenon social-psychologists call social comparison. It posits that we determine our own social and personal worth based on how we stack up against others. So we estimate how attractive we are, or clever or successful by placing our relative ideas of ourselves and ask others to approve or reject that estimation"

    What do you think? Are you seeing this ring true with your students? How are you addressing this in your digital citizenship lessons?
