Digital Citizenship

Ken Taylor – Digital Citizenship Plan

This plan is one component of the CBE Digital Citizenship Process. Schools must complete this plan:
• to be compliant with Administrative Regulation 1062 Use of Electronic Resources
• to allow students to connect to the school’s wireless network with their own devices.

1) Long Term Goal

Digital Safety: Students can manage and protect digital identity and online presence.

Outcome

  • Logging in
  • Keeping passwords private
  • Choosing good passwords
  • Protecting personal information
  • Being aware of our digital presence/footprint

Strategies

  • Class discussions 
  • Hands on practice
  • Websites (Media Smarts, netsmartz, webonauts, PBS kids, learninglab)
  • Home discussions: Students showing parents websites and playing with family. School provides discussion
  • questions for family around digital safety

Measures

  • Students are able to log in independently
  • Students do not give out passwords and ask classmates not to reveal theirs
  • Students ask to reset passwords if someone learns it
  • Students question/double check if information reveals anything personal before they post it 
  • Students go to an adult if a page they go to is unsafe or questionable

Resources

2) Long Term Goal

Digital Learning: Evaluate and select information sources and digital tools based on the relevance to specific learning

Outcome

  • Recognize, identify, and articulate how technology tools are available and helpful to my learning environment
  • Practice strategies for validating digital information
  • Practice problem solving and troubleshooting strategies when I am engaging with a new tool, device and/or application
  • Share my knowledge and use of technology tools for learning with others in support of their growth and understanding

Strategies

  • Through integrated work, students will be asked to evaluate sites, information, and analyze the validity of sites.
  • Through integrated work, students will learn to problem solve and troubleshoot.
  • Students will have opportunities to share their new learning with peers when they have similar problems.

Measures

  • Students will find sources of information that are valid and effective for their learning
  • Students will ask for help from their peers more often

​Digital Citizenship at the CBE

Digital citizenship is about using technology and participating in digital environments. It is key to helping our students learn to use available technology responsibly in the classroom and beyond. Our school has a Digital Citizenship Plan that is updated annually, addressing how we work to build a community where we live and work together as digital citizens.

Visit the CBE website to learn more on how we support students develop online safety skills and learn to be good digital citizens.​​​
