This year we are focusing on learning what makes someone a digital citizen. A digital citizen is 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. (Definition from Dictionary.com) Students will be deepening their knowledge of the components of what makes a good digital citizen through lessons on Nearpod. Common Sense Media is another great website to help teach children the importance of digital citizenship.
This month's focus is about the REALITY OF DIGITAL DRAMA!
- Digital Drama often starts offline and transfers online. Kids can feel empowered to say things they wouldn’t normally say face to face.
- Online drama can be even more challenging because social media provides a wider audience to witness the drama.
- Drama online can have real life consequences.
- Internet Drama can lead to cyberbullying.
