  7. 7. We consider Kids "Digital Natives" but are they?
  8. 8. Digital Natives? Children growing up with the technology available today lead to the label “digital natives”- coined by Mark Prensky Kids may know how to use tech but are they using it to create and innovate? Though we are labeled the "immigrants" we need to guide our children to use the tech responsibly – Digital Citizenship

  15. 15. A definition of digital footprint Whether we're comfortable with it or not, digital footprints—which Richardson defines as "online portfolios of who we are, what we do, and by association, what we know"—are an inevitable byproduct of life in a connected world. Instead of teaching students to be afraid of what others can learn about them online, let's teach them how digital footprints can quickly connect them to the individuals, ideas, and opportunities that they care most about. ~William Ferriter

  17. 17. Thinking Critically About Media At home……parents can play a big role in helping children become media literate. It doesn't require a degree or special classes, just a little time and attention. Talk to your kids. Ask them about what they see, what they understand, and how they are affected. Many helpful ideas for parents can be found online.
  18. 18. What Kids Can Trust and Believe Teach kids to ask the who, what, when, and how questions Balance research sources Is a person who they say they are? Point out all the ways marketers target them
