This week is Digital Citizenship Week! Digital citizenship is about more than Internet safety. In my middle school computer classes, I teach a unit on digital citizenship to each of my 6th-8th grade classes. We cover topics such as our digital media lives, how we present ourselves on social media, copyright laws, and Internet research. Of course, we also cover typical topics associated with Internet safety, such as recognizing online predators and safe and securepasswords. Cyber bullying topics are also part of the curriculum.
What topics do you teach in your digital citizenship unit?
