We are currently working on our K-12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum, and besides identifying key concepts for each grade we have also identified immediate needs at 5th and 8th grade, as well as high school. To address these immediate needs I created presentations for each level and have been teaching these focus lessons. I’ve embedded the prezis below. They are all saved as public and reusable so feel free to copy and adapt them for your own use as needed. (Just put link to original prezi somewhere on your modified version.)
Grade 5: What is Digital Citizenship?
The focus of this presentation is for students to think about what it means to be a good citizen, both online and off. It also includes a digital citizenship pledge from Commonsensemedia.org where students will take the pledge and add their own ideas to it.
Grade 8: Safety and Security in the Digital Age
The focus of this presentation is for students to think about what they share and who they share with. I ended the presentation by asking them ‘If I googled you, or your grandfather googled you today what do you want them to see about you?’
High School: Building a Positive Tattoo
The focus of this presentation is for students to understand what their digital tattoo is and how they can make sure they build a positive one.
I also created a parent presentation for our middle school orientation. This presentation is geared towards parents of 5th graders moving into 6th grade (10-11 year olds).
