  • 1. Digital Citizenship in Schools – Pike Co. School District Mike Ribble, Ed.D. District Director of Technology Manhattan-Ogden School District Manhattan, KS [email_address]
  • 2. “ May you live in Interesting Times”
    • When I first heard this quote in the 1994 Movie “Disclosure” it sounded more of a welcoming phrase than a curse.
    • The origin appears to be a Chinese curse: “May you experience much upheaval and trouble in your life” or "It is better to be a dog in a peaceful time than be a man in a chaotic period.“
    • Perhaps today it is both.
  • 3. What is Digital Citizenship?
    • We define as: The norms appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use.
    • The examples and statistics are showing us that violations in Digital Citizenship are reaching epidemic proportions. Digital Citizenship must become a high priority for educators in the 21st Century.
    • Where did we begin – where are we going.
  • 4. Current ISTE NETS-S Dealing with Appropriate Use (updated Summer 2007)
    • 5. Digital Citizenship
    • Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to technology and practice legal and ethical behavior. Students:
    • advocate and practice safe, legal, and responsible use of information and technology.
    • exhibit a positive attitude toward using technology that supports collaboration, learning, and productivity.
    • demonstrate personal responsibility for lifelong learning.
    • exhibit leadership for digital citizenship.
  • 5. Changes to NETS·T (updated June 2008)
    • 4. Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and Responsibility
    • Teachers understand local and global societal issues and responsibilities in an evolving digital culture and exhibit legal and ethical behavior in their professional practices. Teachers:
    • advocate, model, and teach safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology, including respect for copyright, intellectual property, and the appropriate documentation of sources
    • address the diverse needs of all learners by using learner-centered strategies and providing equitable access to appropriate digital tools and resources
    • promote and model digital etiquette and responsible social interactions related to the use of technology and information
    • develop and model cultural understanding and global awareness by engaging with colleagues and students of other cultures using digital-age communication and collaboration tools
  • 6. Why is Digital Citizenship Important?
    • Providing the tools without explaining how to use them.
    • Between two generations – one that has watched the growth of technology and one that has not known a world without digital opportunities. Marc Prensky – Digital Immigrants/Digital Natives
    • Setting a foundation for the future.
  • 7.
    • Key Questions for today:
    • What are the issues related to Digital Citizenship?

    • Once you have an idea of the issues then you can work on solving them.
    • This is the main reason for Digital Citizenship to provide this framework.
    • World-class students – because they have to be.
    To understand Digital Citizenship need to be able to see all the parts ( The Fifth Discipline, P.Senge, 1990 /The World Is Flat, T. Friedman, 2006 ).
