Tool 10, Digital citizenship

1.The three things I would like any student to understand as important parts to a good digital citizenship would be: To find a balance between the cyber world and the real world. They still need to get out and be physical the way other students were years ago! Safety is of course one of the other major important parts to this. They need to understand how to protect themselves online. I would also love for them to understand that not everything out there is true! They need to learn how to check for resources and understand how easy it is to post something online, and the fact that once it is out there, it will be out there forever!

2.There is a website under that is full of great interactive books and resources for students of all ages. I plan on using the more appropriate resources for my students in my drop box so it will be available for them to use!

3.Although this topic is a very hard one to be discussed with 3 and 4 year olds who have disabilities, I think we as teachers apply these skills in the classroom everyday! We make sure they have a balance between cyber world and real world all the time and we filter what they do online.

4.I think on our campus sharing the idea of digital citizenship will be shared differently with our parents. Their little ones with disability will not be researching online or sharing personal information with anyone. What I will definitely share with them is the fact that they should not be spending hour after hour on the Internet.
