  1. This is a commendable initiative. The notion of Digital Citizenship is considerably broader, but the focus on social networking skills is increasingly important as students get older and closer to the workforce. Better to do it right than try to fix up errors.

    Have you come across real curriculum or support material to make it happen? Something concrete that can be shared?

  2. This is an important goal, Shelly — thanks for your thoughtful video and prompts. Discussing Digital Citizenship and e-safety with students and parents is vital!

    I’m happy to share some resources that we have used to conduct parent-to-parent workshops in the area of e-safety and digital citizenship. We called our workshops “Our Children Online” and have made all of the materials available on a wiki: http://ourchildrenonline.pbworks.com
    The wiki contains just 2 pages: one with ideas for Running a Workshop, and one with Links to Resources.

    Thanks again — and good luck to all parents and educators working in this area.
