This week the 3rd-5th graders will begin the Digital Citizenship Unit. The unit consists of an introduction and three lessons – digital contact, digital content, and digital conduct. The lessons have been placed in a Moodle course so those students who miss technology will have the opportunity to make up their work. I believe the next few weeks will be the most important lessons I teach. I want my students to realize the impact their “digital footprint” will have on their lives. They are growing up in a culture full of wonderful global opportunites and possibilities. They need to realize they also have an enormous responsibility to think about the results of what they choose to post to the internet. They need to be reminded daily by their parents and educators of the tremendous privilege and responsibility that having access to this global community entails.
