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 school librarian in grade-level lessons 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. Lisa Lukens, Technology Teacher on Special Assignment, K-12, works with K-8 school librarians to develop the lessons. All lessons have been adapted from the Common Sense Media (http://www.commonsense.org) curriculum. 
    Lesson topics covered are listed below.
    • Media Balance & Well-Being
    • Privacy & Security
    • Digital Footprint & Identity
    • Relationships & Community
