      • We can no longer rely on Acceptable Use Policies to be the sole “police” of what students are doing with technology.
      • Even if you are not using technology in your classroom, you need to be prepared to discuss digital citizenship.
      • Teaching students to be digital citizens, in and out of school, should be a top priority.
