When I first started teaching a brand new Digital Communications class at a brand new school in a grade level that was brand new to me, I was like….PINTEREST!!! But what I found actually, was a lot of infographics and a lot of one-week units about internet safety, which is an important part of a digital citizenship curriculum. However, it’s not all of it. Not even kind of.
After a lot of searching and a lot of…meh, I realized that I didn’t even really know how to define the idea of digital citizenship. What is it? Why is it important? Yes, it’s many faceted, and yes it involves digital tools, but which ones? How many facets? Why should you care? Will somebody help me teach this??? AH!!
