What is Digital Citizenship?
      "Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users for a society full of technology."

TESD Digital Citizenship Curriculum
       T/E implemented our Digital Citizenship curriculum in the fall of 2011. Students in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades engage in Digital Citizenship discussions with their Guidance Counselor, and Lisa Lukens, Teacher on Assignment for Technology (K-12), in three scheduled whole-group, grade-level meetings throughout the school year. Students in 5th - 8th grades engage in Digital Citizenship discussions with assigned teachers and peer groups in four scheduled grade-level meetings throughout the school year. All lessons have been adapted from the Common Sense Media (http://www.commonsense.org) curriculum. 

     In the charts below, you will find links to the framework for the lessons covered and additional parent resources for each lesson. Please feel free to review the content and objectives of each lesson in order to continue our Digital Citizenship dialogue at home.
