 Digital Citizenship

Navigating the digital world, safely, responsibly, and ethically is more important now than ever before. Young people are immersed in technology in ways previous generations could not have imagined. Teaching our students to use technology safely, responsibly, critically, and pro-actively is the goal of Digital Citizenship activities.

Here are resources that you can share with your teachers, parents, and students to help keep them safe on the internet.

  • Children's Internet Protection Act - The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) is a federal law enacted by Congress to address concerns about access to offensive content over the Internet on school and library computers.

  • Digital Literacy - Digital Literacy Resources from the Georgia Department of Education.

  • ISTE National Educational Technology Standards. Click on the link to learn more about Digital Citizenship for students, teachers, and administrators.

  • Media and Digital Literacy: Resources for Parents - Edutopia

  • Netsmartz.org - NetSmartz offers free, multimedia Internet safety presentations tailored for specific audiences — parents and communities, tweens, teens, and younger children.
