What is Digital Citizenship?
How will we put this into
Brown Elementary School?
This is an action done by citizens online. It is a citizens
responsibility to act appropriately and choose safe
Our biggest issue as a private school is trying to keep up with the
public schools around us that have technology plans in place. Our goal
is to get more technical devices in our classrooms and set up safety
guidelines for online use.
In order for us to get more involved we need to educate teachers ,
students, and families on how to get safer access online and teach our
kids how to be responsible digital citizens. Our biggest problem is we
don’t have the funds or support to maintain safe technology. We need
to teach our kids what to look out for, how to act, and how to use
technical devices. We are hoping to get a committee on our school
board to set up a plan for the next 3 years.
• Get our classrooms prepared for more
technical devices such as smart boards and
• Have a discussion with our kids and
community about how to be responsible
• Get some funding for CIPA-Compliant in
order to have filters on all websites.
• Make digital citizenship a rule in all our
school and post it in our bylaws, hallways,
•Have consequences for not being
responsible digital citizens.
What kinds of resources will we use as teachers to promote
a safe online environment?
In order to provide a safe lesson for each student, teachers
will have an explained lesson plan layout for each student to
use while they are doing their assignment online. They will also
have discussions and activities to help build a safe online
community in their classroom.
There will be jobs for students to monitor and help other
students, for example, website monitor, verbal monitor, and
staying on task monitor. These jobs will keep them focused and
will teach them how to look out for each other online.
There will be whole group lessons where the teacher will be
able to tell each step of what to do on the computer by
modeling it on a smart board device. This way there can be
class discussions on how to use certain websites or programs
on the computer or technical device.
They will also communicate with the parents about what their
child will be doing online in the classroom throughout the year.
*The main focus of all of this is to keep our
children safe online. We need to work together in
order to accomplish this task.
EDUCATE- teach kids what is safe and not safe online and how to use
COMMUNICATE-have the community working together in order to
promote an online safe environment
RESEARCH-look into educating yourself and become lifelong learners
with the children on online devices
