Course Description

CEU Course Description

We’re living through the Information Age. Your students are likely spending a lot of their time on social media. It can be tempting to think that their savviness with gifs and internet-related acronyms means that they know how to comport themselves respectfully on the internet. This is not necessarily the case. Digital Citizenship is a student standard that is being taught in a growing number of classrooms across the nation. If you prioritize teaching your students how to be good citizens of the online community, you’re handing your students the tools to respect, protect, and educate themselves and others in the ever-evolving online sphere for the rest of their lives. In this course, we’ll go into what Digital Citizenship specifically is, what you can do to incorporate it into your classroom structure, and how to help your students grow past citizenship straight into Digital Leadership. 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Detail the main elements of Digital Citizenship, as well as the ways in which being conscientious digital citizens is good for your students (and the online community as a whole).
  2. Analyze the ways with which teachers can help students grow to become good online citizens by following the rules of netiquette, learning to protect themselves and others, respecting internet property laws, information literacy, and more.
  3. Understand the difference between Digital Citizenship and Digital Leadership, and brainstorm ways to help students grow into digital leaders.
  4. Create a framework for teachers to help students mitigate and stop cyberbullying in its tracks by realizing when they need help and prioritizing internet security practices.
  5. Remember that teachers can, perhaps, best teach Digital Citizenship and Digital Leadership by modeling it for the students, and discuss ways in which teachers can most effectively do so for their students.
