Summary

In this assignment, students will work together to create a digital story on the importance of digital citizenship. 


Background for Teachers

Teachers need to understand that digital citizenship is a concept that relates to what students/children/technology users need to understand in order to use technology appropriately. Cyber bullying among school students is a common and growing problem, as is the prevalence of online predators and accessibility of pornography. Teachers need to be aware of these dangers and know how to help students use technology wisely and safely. 


Student Prior Knowledge

Students need to be aware of the inherent dangers that exist online as well as how their own words and behavior online have a positive or negative effect that is not benign. 


Intended Learning Outcomes

As a result of this lesson/activity, students will be able to:

  1. Identify the dangers of online predators and pornography, ways to avoid these dangers, and what to do if a student encounters them.
  2. Recognize how social media gives everyone a platform and a voice and how this can be used for good and ill. Students will demonstrate how their actions online affect others and the possible consequences of these actions.
  3. Students will give examples of appropriate technology use.


Instructional Procedures

  1. Working with another student, students will create a Google Slides or Powerpoint presentation about Digital Citizenship.
  2. Presentation must include at least 8 slides with pictures and information.
  3. The following areas must be addressed in the presentation:
    1. Cyber bullying- what it is, what it can look like, how to not take part in it.
