DEFINITION OF A DIGITAL CITIZEN
A person who develops the skills and knowledge to effectively use the Internet and other digital technology, especially in order to participate responsibly in social and civic activities.
TOPICS TO COVER WITH STUDENTS
Although there are many benefits associated with a one-to-one initiative, there are also potential dangers that must be addressed with students to keep them informed and safe as they navigate a digital world. We provide many lessons to students throughout the grade levels to support safe and responsible technology use and we encourage parents and guardians to discuss these topics at home as well.
