Our students are living their lives online. They can share everything and anything with the world with just a tap of a button. It seems like every day we are hearing about the latest popular app among teens and kids. And with it comes a new way to connect.
It’s nearly impossible to keep up. With technology changing constantly it can be difficult to know where to begin teaching digital citizenship.
Fortunately for us, there are many apps, tools, and resources available to educators to help our students navigate the digital world safely. But where do we find them?
In a recent #Ditchbook chat, fellow educators shared over 15 incredible resources to get you started teaching digital citizenship and take it farther than just a one-off lesson or unit.
- HyperDocs (just go to “file” then “make a copy” to use with your class!)
- book recommendations
- FREE online curriculum
- a Padlet FULL of even more resources
- …plus so much more
Check them out in the summary of this week’s chat below! Also, be sure to check out our Digital Citizenship Pinterest board filled with ideas from the #Ditchbook community!
PS: Preservice teacher Megan Snedeker wrote about her Twitter chat experience from this chat! Check out her reflections on Twitter chats and digital citizenship!
