2. I will use Brain Pop videos and the Cyber (smart) teens videos to help instruct my students about appropriate use of technology. I also found on the "Digital Citizenship-Using Technology Appropriately" site a family contract for digital citizenship. Included was a Kids' pledge and a Parents Pledge.
3. I will "teach" digital citizenship to my students by showing the videos mentioned above and using the kids' pledge. I think it is also important to lead by example. Like I mentioned before this is a learning process not only for the students but also for the teachers. I will be learning and modeling the correct digital behavior right along with the students.
4. Digital citizenship should be discussed at Back to School night. Information could be put in the SOMS newsletter and available on the SOMS website. Information could also be provided at Report Card Pick Up. I would also like to use the Parents Pledge that I mentioned earlier.
