RTSD Digital Citizenship Curriculum
Digital Citizenship - How to be safe and responsible online
"Kids and teens today are using the immense power of digital media to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined. With this power, young people have extraordinary opportunities, and yet they face potential pitfalls, too. Meanwhile, schools are dealing with the associated ramifications — like cyber bullying, digital cheating, and safety and security concerns. These issues underscore the need for students to learn — and for teachers to teach — digital literacy and citizenship skills." - "Our K-12 Digital literacy and Citizenship Curriculum." Common Sense Media. 31 Oct. 2014. <https://www.commonsensemedia.org/sites/default/files/uploads/pdfs/curriculum-overview_0.pdf>.
