Digital Citizenship
Do our students understand the concept?
Why are you here?
What is Digital Citizenship?
How does it impact our classrooms?
Have they changed at all?
Questions to Ponder…
What are our desired outcomes for our students?
How have those outcomes changed in the last 100 years?
The vision must be clear enough to encourage continual risk taking and failing, OR ELSE the continual testing and stretching and enhancing—
—of everything will not occur, or not occur fast enough

-Tom Peters, Thriving on Chaos
The Core Paradox
Develop and model cultural understanding and global awareness by engaging with colleagues and students of other cultures using digital age communication and collaboration tools
ISTE NETS Standard #4
Advocate, model, and teach safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology, including respect for copyright, intellectual property, and the appropriate documentation of sources
Address the diverse needs of all learners by using learner-centered strategies providing equitable access to appropriate digital tools and resources
Promote and model digital etiquette and responsible social interactions related to the use of technology and information
Since the turn of the 20th Century, and lasting until today, generation after generation of young people and adults have come into conflict and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
“exerts a harmful influence…upon the public mind and morals, and particularly upon the minds of youth and children.”
and it has
“steeped the youth of our country in filth and degradation.”
Example #1: What is it??
Central Conference of American Rabbis, quoted in “Rabbis Denounce ‘Harmful’ Movies.” New York Times, June 19, 1934, p. 24.

Reverend Dr. S. Parkes Cadman, quoted in “Cadman at Drexel Denounces Movies.” New York Times, June 19, 1934, p. 15.
Movies (1930’s)
“may well be…an insidious force that causes children to be more aggressive, fearful, materialistic and callous, while at the same time makes them more passive, less robust and damages their educational potential.”
Example #2: What is it??
Richard Flaste, “Screening TV For Uncritical Young Eyes.” New York Times, March 11, 1977, p. 31.
Television (1970’s)
“a communicable disease” is “cannibalistic and tribalistic” and just “another form of adolescent rebellion.”
Example #3: What is it??
“Rock-and-Roll called ‘Communicable Disease’.” New York Times, March 28, 1956, p. 33.
Rock-n-roll (1950’s)
Adults feeling confused and left out…”Kids Today!!”
What do these examples have in common?
Overall, our struggles are not much different from previous generations’ struggles with US!!
What does this mean for educators?
Young people embracing new forms of technology/activity
New technologies/activities involving thematic content
Young people form “community” and speak a “language” that is theirs and theirs alone
We see students behaving in our classes in ways that we do not appreciate
We see students engaging with technology in ways that we consider inappropriate, or rude, or detrimental to both their maturation and education
Today, billions of people all over the planet interact using various technologies. This interaction has created a digital society that affords its members opportunities for education, employment, entertainment, and social interaction. As in any society, it is expected that digital citizens act in a certain way—according to accepted norms, rules, and laws. Most of today’s students are entirely comfortable with technology, but are they using it appropriately? Do they understand their roles and responsibilities in digital society? How can teachers help students become responsible digital citizens?
I wonder…
I didn’t know that…
I agree because…
I disagree because…
This is confusing to me because…

Doug Meyer
Thank you!!
Did this impact the knowledge of my students?
Did it address identified standards?
Did it differentiate for different student needs?
Were students actively engaged?
Did wraparound activities, learning strategies,
and the use of collaborative resources work?
How would I refine them?
