Teaching Digital Citizenry
Yesterday Google in Education partnered with Common Sense Media for their second webinar in their Digital Citizenship series. This talk was called with Helping Kids Manage their Digital Footprints, and if you missed it you can still catch the webinar at this YouTube Video.
Here’s the synopsis: “Increasingly, kids are sharing information about themselves online, whether it’s uploading photos and videos, posting status updates, or telling their innermost secrets to a vast audience on YouTube. But what does this mean for their privacy and reputation, now and in the future? Join Common Sense Media, who will share resources from their Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum. The curriculum, which teaches kids to be safe and responsible online, is research-based, flexible, aligned with ELA Common Core standards.”
