Take a couple of minutes to think about this question. Jot down your thinking. Throughout this interactive presentation, keep thinking about this question. You may have some ideas now, and if you do, please take a couple of minutes to jot them down. Then as you progress through the presentation jot down your thinking as you experience new learning.
The Nine Elements of Digital Citizenship are listed on this slide. They are: Digital Access, Digital Commerce, Digital Communication, Digital Literacy, Digital Etiquette, Digital Law, Digital Rights and Responsibilities, Digital Health and Wellness, and Digital Security. If you would like you can Click on any of the nine icons on the right side of this slide to learn more about each of the nine elements of digital citizenship. Look for the HOME icon located in the top right corner to return to this slide.
This is a visual model of how the elements of digital citizenship relate and connect to one another as well as to the core goals of improving learning outcomes and preparing students to be college and career ready as well as upstanding citizens. Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with this model.
Think about this….Technology provides opportunities for large numbers of people to communicate and interact very quickly. However, not everyone has access to all the tools of this new digital society. Because of socioeconomic status, disabilities, and physical location (among other factors), these opportunities are not equally available to all students or teachers. Examples of Appropriate Digital Access: District administrators work toward providing technology opportunities for all students within their schools. Technology leaders provide technology to students who do not have access to technology.
Email provides a written record of the message. Consequences to this built in record keeping feature include the fact that once an email is sent there is a record. This means users need to think about what they say when using email. Too often, emails are sent without considering who might see them or how they might be interpreted. Some times speaking to someone face-to-face can solve a situation faster than multiple e-mails. ActivityRound 1: Think of a time when you experienced receiving an electronic exchange of information that left you feeling uncomfortable. You just didn’t think it was the best way to receive the information. Round 2: Think of a time when you experienced sending an electronic exchange of information that you later discovered probably wasn’t the best way to deliver the information.Round 3: Think of a time when you have try to support someone who received an electronic exchange of information and was upset by the information.
Are these today’s forms of communication good or bad? I would offer the communication tools themselves are valuable! It is only how an individual chooses to use of them that makes them good or bad!
Technology-infused teaching and learning is becoming more commonplace every year and it is my goal, it becomes as transparent as the chalkboard and pencil. However, teaching how to use technology appropriately has not kept pace. Learning with technology does not always include instruction on appropriate and inappropriate use.Meet the perfect example, Regan is an incredible kid who is totally digital literate. I love that at her age she already knows how browsers work, which search engines are the best to locate what topics, she is a texting queen yet is totally literate and professional when communicating through email. I love she has explored learning opportunities on the web and yet when she knows her own limitations and asks for assistance.Question:The buzz words coming from Arnie Duncan’s office right now for educators is they should be building their own personal learning networks. (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Pinterest) Do any of you have a PLN?
Problem: We have teachers who think digital literacy does not rank as high in importance as traditional literacies in reading, writing, and mathematics!There are kiddos who love to use technology and are pretty savvy at using it, but need to be nurtured and taught to grow and flourish and become digital literate and college/career ready!
As members of a digital society, we are asked to do what is best for the larger group. To do this, we must think about how our technology use affects others. Good digital citizens respect others and learn ways to use technology courteously and effectively.
Digital Rights and Responsibility IssuesTipsKET (Kentucky Educational Television) purchases Discovery media for all Kentucky Public schools. If you post their media on a website where others who have not paid for a subscription to their product are able to download or watch the media you are in violation of their contract. You purchase a license for Microsoft Office 2010. You have A LICENSE and should only install it on 1 computer.Take AUPs seriously! You should read, understand and follow the AUP!!Using online material ethically, including citing sources and requesting permissions.Using technology to cheat on tests and assignmentsReporting cyberbullies, threats and other inappropriate use.
More often than not, security faults occur not because of flaws in the equipment but because of the ways people use it. We give away our passwords without thinking of the consequences. We do not take the time to speak to our children about meeting people on the Internet. Young people often view strangers on the Internet as potential friends they have not yet met. Too often students correlate their social status in the digital world with the number of online “friends”, “followers”, etc….
Introduce the video:How many of you have….Created a profile on an Internet site?Filled out a form online?Chatted on IM or with any Chat tool? Sent and Email?Typed your name in Google? Were there any results about you? Explain that filling out a form, sending an email to a friend, posting a photo and pretty much everything one does online – even the simple act of visiting a website or using a search engine – leaves a trail. This trail is called a digital footprint, is made of bits and pieces of information on one’s computer and on other computers and servers around the world, which allow other people to learn about you. Play The Digital Footprint video – carefully watch the imagery in the video and think about what the images might convey about privacy.
What kinds of things are on the bulletin board or walls in a classroom? Imagine if everything in a classroom was pinned up on a bulletin board in the local grocery store. Would you be comfortable with all this information begin up for everyone who walks in the grocery store to see? There is certain information that might be fine to show anyone. But there is also personal and private information, such as individuals’ addresses, birth dates, and photos of their family vacations, which is not meant for most people’s eyes.
Activity:How many of you have been taught - don’t talk to strangers?Complete the graphic organizer on the following slide after viewing the video clip.
Yes its true a picture is worth a thousand words, but no I don’t believe any picture is worth your life. There is no story that brings meaning to these words of advice than that of the Bowling Green, KY tragedy of Jamie Stice.
The Jamie Stice tragedy all started with her choice to share a profile picture that would eventually cost her life.
Jamie posted this photo of her pregnant belly on Facebook making it available for all her “FB friends to see”.
There will always be people who do not follow the rules of society and who engage in activities that run counter to the ideals of society as a whole. In this regard, digital society is no different. As such, consequences are being established for those who act as bad digital citizens – users who steal others’ information, hack into servers, create and release viruses, and so on.
Students need to be aware of the physical dangers using digital technology. Carpel tunnel syndrome, eye strain, and poor posture. Importance of exercise – a life outside the digital world (typical tech folks)
Digital Commerce plays a large role in college/career readiness. Learning to become an intelligent consumer is an important aspect of good citizenship.Includes: Online buying through commercial sites, auction sites, and other Internet locationsOnline selling through auction sites and other Internet locationsMedia subscriptions and purchases made through media software such as iTunesBuying and selling “virtual merchandise” for online games
Reflection I want you to think about your reflection in 3 parts. So now that you have completed this presentation focused on the world of Digital Citizenship reflect upon a time during this learning experience you were perhaps hearing some of the content for the first time. WHAT happened to you as a member of the digital society we live in during this experience. Now reflect upon the learning from the experience. So What? Why do you think this experience has been powerful? And finally think about this….Now What? What are ways you might be considering to extend the learning to others. How might you spread the word?

Definition: Full electronic participation in society Does everyone in your school have equal opportunities as far as technology use is concerned? Do all students have the opportunity to be involved in a digital society?
Definition: The electronic exchange of information Cell phones, blogs, discussion boards, instant messaging, videoconferencing, and email have changed the way technology users communicate. Today‟s forms of communications have changed the way technology users communicate and created a new social structure governing who, how and when people interact
Do I use email, blogs, cell phone and instant messaging technologies appropriately when communicating with others? What rules, options and etiquette do students need to be aware of when using digital communication technologies? Do we need to be in contact with other people all of the time? Do we understand what is appropriate when communicating with other technology users?
Definition: The capability to use digital technology and knowing when and how to use it. Should technology be used to access information to learn new concepts?
Teachers & Students need to understand that certain technology skills are critical to reaching college/career readiness – just liking technology is NOT enough. We all need to understand how to use technology appropriately!
Definition: The standards of conduct expected by other digital technology users. Are students aware of others when they use technology? Do students realize how their use of technology affects others?
Definition: The privileges and freedoms extended to all digital technology users, and the behavioral expectations that come with them. What rights and responsibilities do students have in a digital society?
Definition: The precautions that all technology users must take to guarantee their personal safety and the security of their network. How do students protect their technology in a digital society? How can students be taught to protect themselves and their equipment from harm?
Atany given moment there are over 50,000 online sexual predators surfing social sites looking for victims. None of their intended targets are over 16 years of age.
When the victim was 14 years old, she wasstruggling, like many girls her age, with herparents, her self esteem and uncertainty aboutlife. She sat at her computer and decided to visita Christian chat room. Within minutes, shereceived an instant message from a man whowould devastate her life and the lives of herfamily members forever more.
The 39-year-old perpetrator was so skilled atmanipulation, that over a period of months, hesucceeded in gaining her trust, convincing herthat he was the only one who really loved her, andthat her parents were the enemy. After 9 monthsof grooming the victim through computer andphone conversations, the perpetrator moved toLexington to be with her. The relationship soonbecame sexual and continued for the next 8months, until police became involved.
The perpetrator was charged with multiplesex offenses and was sentenced to 11 yearsin prison. It‟s difficult to imagine the effecta crime like this has on a family. On thefollowing slides, are excerpts from theVictim‟s Impact Statements submitted to thecourt on behalf of this young victim?
“He spent nine months grooming her, sucking her into hislies, making her believe that nothing was as important asher, forging a bigger and bigger gap between her and herfamily.”“Our daughter told us that when she met him face to facefor the first time, that he was ugly, fat, and smelledbad, but he had so successfully brainwashed her bythen, that it didn‟t matter. He told her she was his „soulmate‟ and that they would get married when she waseighteen.”
“She went into a Christian chat room and came out a few hourslater with an internet pedophile. This man moved from Oregonto Lexington for the sole purpose of molesting a 14-year-oldgirl.”“The impact on our family is almost indescribable. Mydaughter, who was an honor student, is now in a therapeuticinstitution trying to recover from these events. Instead ofspending her second year of high school with her family, she isaway from home and will probably be there for a long time.”“For me personally, I cannot sleep at night and as hard as Ihave tried to protect my daughter, I was unable to protect her.”
“He lied to me, manipulated me, and used me forsexual acts. I constantly am thinking of how much Ireally want to go back and change things. I neverwould have accepted an instant message from him inthe first place. However, the fact of the matter is this:these things did happen, they can‟t be changed and I‟llhave to live with them forever.”“This person took away my innocence. He stole it fromme. I did feel pressured to perform and receive sexualthings. I‟ll never get that back. He told me he wasgoing to die very soon. That was so emotionallydraining. It‟s a lot of work to have my heart pulled in48 different directions all at once. “
“When a detective told me I couldn‟t talk to him, Iliterally thought that was the end of the world. Ithought he was the only person that cared aboutme or loved me, I decided to try to kill myself andoverdosed on pills.”“It‟s very difficult for me to forgive myself forbeing with him.”
People have hundreds of online friends without realizing that it is the same as giving them a key to their front door. Facebook – What not to post
Are you confident your friends have secure sites and protected passwords? Are you confident they won‟t walk away from a public computer without logging off their social site? Are you confident they don‟t share account information with other members of their family? Do you allow pictures of your family to be taken and uploaded to online sites by your friends?
A Picture is worth 1000 wordsBut is it worth your life?
Definition: The legal rights and restrictions governing technology use. Are students using technology the way it was intended? Are students infringing on others‟ rights by the way they use technology? Should students using digital technologies be accountable for how they use digital technologies?
