Students at Franklin Elementary were given their first digital citizenship lesson of the year. Throughout the year, we will be talking about internet safety and how students can be responsible when connected to the “Digital World.”
1st and 2nd graders learned about Going Places Safely online. We discussed the three rules they should follow before going online:
1. Ask a parent or adult first.
2. Only talk to people you know in real life.
3. Go to websites that are just right for you
We vistited a website and discussed what they should look for to make sure the website is just right for them, but they should always still ask an adult if it is OK.
3rd-5th graders learned about The Rings of Responsibility. We explored what it means to take on responsibilities in both their offline and online communities as a way to learn how to be good digital citizens.
Info for Parents:
6th Graders learned about the Digital Life. Students are introduced to the 24/7, social nature of digital media and technologies, and gain basic vocabulary and knowledge for discussing the media landscape. We discussed how everyone’s digital life is different and that digital media affects us all differently as well.
