Building Successful Digital Citizenship
Digital Literacy
Is your digital interface "user friendly"? Do you have the knowledge to learn and teach a new technology? Digital literacy is the ability to interface, interpret and teach with the advancing software/hardware being produced for the classroom.
Do your students have access to digital technology in the classroom/home environment? Special needs access?
Access to computer technology is important for the future success of your students. What can we build to bidge the divide?
Teachers and administrators can advocate for greater student technology interacting opportunities and agendas.
Teachers should not overlook the needs of students that have difficulty accessing computer technology.
Here's a link that presents a study on digital differences and how it shapes our perceptions:
Digital Etiquette
Digital Rights and Responsibilities
Digital Security
Instruction directed at informed "shopping" practices and privacy can help your students make better and safer purchases from legitimate web sites. Inform students about potential hazards when using sensitive information given online, such as credit card and social security card.
Students may leave themselves vulnerable to identity theft if they are not informed of their privacy online.
Poor purchasing decisions online can affect future credit scores that are not completely understood or thought to be relevant to teens.
Potential usage of gambling and pornography sites without firewall setup.
Part of becoming a good digital citizen is learning to become an intelligent discerning online consumer.
It's always important to be able to effectively communicate ideas and information to your target audience. Technology can be an effective strategy, examples are; texting, blogging, email, skyping and video.
Using digital communication devices can be used to advance and coordinate classroom instruction amongst the teacher and students and/or parents. Can also be an effective teaching tool with real-time class participation.
Sometimes digital technology can become a distraction and lead to misuse in the classroom or at home. Instructors need to choose apps or software that can mitigate these hazards.
Follow this blog link to read about the hazards facing young shoppers online. http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/mediapolicyproject/2014/03/20/children-the-internet-and-ecommerce/
View this link to read about student teen use of technology to communicate and social impacts. http://www.pewinternet.org/2015/08/06/teens-technology-and-friendships/
As instructors we need time to seek out training and development on the latest technologies so that we can use them to the greatest impact. Lets learn about browsers, email and apps to facilitate engagement.
Enhancing computer literacy for your students can be achieved by exposing them to digital interactions in classroom assignment. Making on-line assignments and websites can bring the class to the student.
By limiting the exposure of digital content literacy, teachers may be stunting the development of their students' future employment opportunities. The more basic technology exposure the students get, the better.
Behaving well on the Internet or cell phones? What is considered appropriate or inappropriate behavior? What is the code of conduct applies to digital interfaces and people? How is technology affecting our interactions with others?
Learning courteous digital etiquette shows respect for others and promotes stronger collaboration and conversations. When you use technology you have to remember to be a responsible digital citizen in this global society.
Good etiquette starts in the classroom. Teachers can work with students to share how to behave online just as they would in the class. Be aware and don't let students engage with cyber bulling or inflammatory speech.
Poor etiquette can perpetuate witin a lassroom. Studnets need to be made aare that the use of phones ad computers are for school realted tasks, not for personal subjects. Theach rules of engafemtne for chat and blog sites, dont't leave studnets opent to bullying and hage speech online.
What are the digital laws that deal with the ethics of technology? What are the common ethics? Is downloading stealing? Is sending a picture unlawful? Ethical online behavior starts with abiding the laws of society. Users need to be made aware of the rules to follow in an ethical society.
Digital Law
Unethical behavior online includes; sexting, pirating, hacking information, downloading ellegal music/book/video, plagiarizing, creating viruses, sending spam, or stealing anyone's identity or property. Users need to understand that stealing or causing damage to other people's work, identity, or property online is a crime. These laws apply to anyone who work or plays online.
As teachers we need to make our students aware of the potential breaches of legal conduct when downloarding music/video/book or software files. Educate students that sexting is legally hazardous to their future. Discuss examples of unlawful and illegal technology behavior, which some of our students may have already been exposed to.
Poor Ethical patrolling of school use computers should not be ignored. Teachers need to pay attention to the use of technology by the students in their school and of those that me be potentially illegal. Any of he above mentioned should be engaged with and thwarted.
What protections and guarantees are expected when we cue digital technology? What responsibilities do you have to uphold as a digital citizen? Being a good digital citizen entitles you to the freedoms extended to everyone in the digital world, but with power comes "responsibility",
We all have certain responsibilities to our society; boundaries that establish rules of conduct and policies online. This sustains the freedoms experienced by the world digital stage. Once they are abused outside regulation can curtail those freedoms.
Basic acceptable use policies should be addressed by the teacher to the students and parents. Have students learn about and report cyber bullying. In class, instructors should emphasize when using online material created by others to cite the sources and seek permission where necessary.
If not vigilant, some of theses freedoms can be abused by studnets. Some examples include not citing source material online or situations such as to cyber bullying and cheating on tests/assignments.
Can using technology be bad for us? Digital health and wellness is about examining the physical and emotional stresses/strains when using computers, phones and video games.
When using computers we are not walking or standing but using only a small group of muscles for a prolonged period. Using computers has become physically demanding and the need for ergonomics have become more important as we progress into the digital age. Not as well defined are cyber addictions that can degrade a persons emotional well being.
As teachers we can discuss the ways to ergonomically structure the computer environment with the students to help minimize eye strain and poor posture. But more importantly, the teacher can discuss with their class the signs of online addictions and possible abuse. We can demonstrate digital safety and that being online can be enriching and not harmful.
Don't let your students down by ignoring uncomfortable tables/chairs for computer classed. Especially monitor for sighs of inappropriate interactions, abuse and possible addictive behavior.
Here's some information that can help expand your knowledge about digital literacy and ways to incorporate it into your curriculum. http://www.teachhub.com/technology-classroom-what-digital-literacy

Here's an interesting article describing the pitfalls of digital law and high school kids. http://www.edweek.org/ew/articles/2010/07/14/37kelly.h29.html
Wikipedia does a great job describing the process of digital rights as it stands today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_rights
View the following video highlighting the ways that technology can affect well being, happiness and health for our kids.
When protecting your person and data, do you feel secure transacting on the Internet? Designing cyber safety and protections; not only protects you but others from unwanted trollers, hacks and virus incursions.
With so many personal and commercial exchanges on the Internet there is a greater need to protect personal information form hackers and "no goods". Preemptively, computers need to be protected just like you car or house. Electronic precautions such as password protections, encryption and antivirus software should be addressed.
Teachers can discuss the dangers of using personal information on-line with their students. Kids need guidance from their adult community in identifying and getting protection from cyber strangers and trollers.
Failure to show how to protect private information can leave computers vulnerable to security breached that can harm our student's computers or esteem. Don't ignore updating current software patches that protect the computer from viruses and intrusions.
This article describes how to teach students about cyber security and how they can build their own defense. https://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/12/11/teaching-about-cybersecurity-taking-steps-to-improve-online-safety-and-prevent-data-breaches/?_r=0
