Digital Citizenship Unit

This is an excellent unit that introduces the concept of digital citizenship. Perfect for classes that are just starting to use technology in the classroom or for classrooms using iPads extensively. This unit teaches students how to use technology in the classroom safely and responsibly. Topics covered:

Going places safely online
Sites I like

Searching safely online
Making safe blog posts

My preview gives one of these lessons away for free!

After each short 10-15 minute teaching portion, the students get to create something that reinforces the lesson about digital citizenship and safety.

This unit also provide letters after each safety session to send home to parents to prove that that students have been trained in using digital technology.
