Tool # 10 - Digital Citizenship

With the use of computers and digital devices comes new responsibilities and digital citizenship.  Students need to learn how to operate safely, friendly, and ethically in the digital world, just as we teach them to do so on terra firma.  Students need to respect copyright and intellectual property and use the appropriate documentation of sources.  They need to learn to identify predators and to recognize cyber bullying as well as refrain from participating in either.  I'm glad I work for a school and a district that takes these issues seriously.

I like the online resources from Texas State University:  It includes lessons for students and parents. It even includes a link to the Texas Attorney General's safety tips:
The sidebar on this pdf would be great to post and go over with students and email to parents.
