Transcript of The Avenues for Dig. Cit.

Freshman Leadership Course
Currently, the Freshman Leadership Course consists of 57 lessons & 11 units
With the addition of a Digital Citizenship Unit, the Freshman Leadership Course would consist of 63 lessons & 12 units
Lesson outlines would mimic those of the Teen Leadership Course Leader Guide to provide consistent direction & similar instructions for how to present each topic.
A possible lesson would include the following:
Opening Affirmations & Discussions
Journal Question
Role Play
Additional Activities
Quote of the day
The unit would be project based with the intent to create real world experiences & authentic situations, so that the students will understand the magnitude & importance of the material.
Example Project:
Students chose a topic that has been discussed in the course and created a Vine (6 second video clip that can be shared or embedded in social networking services such as Twitter ) skit that demonstrates and presents the key points of the chosen topic.

This project will be conducted at the beginning of the Digital Citizenship Unit. It will act as the attention grabber or hook. Bringing the students into one of their most familiar platforms,
A Second Avenue:
Social Media/Video Production

Positives of the Freshman Leadership Avenue:
-since students acquire their digital identity/footprint early, it is important to reach them early.
-there is no time to delay in teaching responsible digital habits.
-all freshmen will become competent digital citizens who will lead the digital path for students at St. John Vianney High School for years to come.
-within 4 years, every student will have been educated in Digital Citizenship
The social media/video production course will include different aspects of social media and how it is used in our society .
Different Aspects:
-Law & Ethics
-Social Media Writing Process
-Social Media Writing Structure
-Media Analysis
These aspects are truly relevant in this digital age. Students will learn skills that they will be able to apply in real life and future careers.
Example Project:
Students will tweet from an open account on a regular basis throughout the semester.
Minimum requirements for the semester:

• Tweet twice a day.

• One of those tweets must contain the tag #DigCit

• One of those tweets must be a RT, mention, or critique

• Reply to a classmate’s tweet once a day.

• Use the class tag # when relevant to class.

• Favorite (“star”) tweets in your feed that you think are worth being highlighted.

• Follow established etiquette.

Negatives of the Freshman Leadership Avenue: -maturity level may be a factor
-can 14/15 year old boys fully buy in & comprehend the importance of the material?
-maintenance of comprehension

Positives of the Social Media/Video Production Avenue:

-students will have an entire semester of practice using the principles of Digital Citizenship

-the student will gain an in-depth understanding of how to make themselves more marketable online & more specifically, through media analysis, guest speakers, and first-hand exposure to social media technologies they will become proficient digital citizens

Negatives of the Social Media/Video Production Avenue:

-only a small amount of the student population will be educated on the Digital Citizenship content
Possible Avenues For a
Digital Citizenship Curriculum @

A Third Avenue:
School Wide Curriculum
Regardless of the avenue, educating our students to become digitally literate should be a school wide initiative.
-Faculty members should be digitally literate. This means that they put in to practice everything from creative credit to not indulging in over-sharing.
-To become familiarized with Digital Citizenship, faculty members can view the Teacher's Guide to Digital Citizenship below:

Through this avenue, the entire student body will quickly be reached. The curriculum would include classroom Dig. Cit. workshops & Digital Citizenship Week to engage students, teachers, & even families in our community in thinking critically, behaving safely, and participating responsibly online.

Positives of the School Wide Curriculum Avenue:

-all of the students will receive a background knowledge of Digital Citizenship in the fall semester
-not only will the students receive the education, but so will the faculty & possibly families in the community
-students will also be subject to yearly maintenance of the Digital Citizenship material
-the class of 2018 will have 4 years of exposure to the content

Negatives of the School Wide Curriculum Avenue:

-student will experience sporadic coverage of the material
-lack in-depth/authentic experiences
3 Possible Avenues
1 Goal:
-Teach our students to conduct themselves as gentlemen on
and off the computer, as online presence is only a reflection of one’s true self.
