October 24-28 is Digital Citizenship Week.
At Heathcote we talk about digital citizenship, and digital leadership, across all lessons and projects. We discuss such things as keeping passwords private, limiting identifiable information, making thoughtful decisions online, being purposeful about looking for the good (and not the garbage) and much more. We weave all these concepts into every lessons, at grade/age appropriate ways. This post is a list of resources to extend these concepts at home.
Common Sense Media has shared a number is great resources for parents to help extend the lessons of digital citizenship at home. Below are the Common Sense Media resources to assist with the conversation at home…
