Have you introduced the concept of digital citizenship to your students yet? Well, it's about time you do so. Technology is and will definitely be part and parcel of your teaching toolkit. Be it they use it in class under your supervision or at home alone, students need to understand the proper use of this technology and learn how to be good digital citizens.
From how to use pictures in their multimedia projects to how to comment on peers' posts in the classroom blog, the core precepts of digital citizenship should constantly be invoked. There is nothing better than to model this digital behaviour in front of them. As a teacher, you can dedicate a whole session to activities and tasks involving the use of different digital media and after each activity students are asked a set of question about the purpose and aims of the activity. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has a section where you can access a gamut of resources and materials on this topic, check it out HERE to learn more.

" From safety and privacy to literacy and online responsibility, these cards cover digital citizenship basics and have conversation starters to get you and your child thinking and talking."
