• Digital Citizenship Program

    Grades K-5 will be participating in digital citizenship lessons that address timely topics and prepare students to take ownership of their digital lives (Digital Citizenship Curriculum). Each lesson falls under one of the following topics:

    • Media Balance & Well-Being: Students go beyond screen time to explore the impact their digital lives can have on their well-being and relationships while learning to balance media in their everyday lives. 
    • Privacy & Security: Students learn how to protect personal information and gain a deeper understanding of their data privacy rights so they can advocate for themselves and others. 
    • Digital Footprint & Identity: Students consider the benefits and risks of online sharing and explore how a digital persona can affect one's sense of self, reputation, and relationships. 
    • Relationships & Communication: Students reflect on how to build positive relationships, avoid risky online talk, and understand why some topics and conversations can best lend themselves to certain mediums. 
    • Cyberbullying: Students take on these tough topics and play the active role of upstander to build positive, supportive online communities and combat online cruelty. 
    • News & Media Literacy: Students identify credible and trustworthy information sources and reflect on their responsibilities as thoughtful media creators and consumers.
