As schools and society become more intertwined with digital technology, there needs to be a structure that can teach students (and parents) how to act responsibly, appropriately and respectfully to this technology. Looking well beyond the standard Internet Use Policy (IUP) most students and parents sign, this course introduces conceptual elements and supporting activities that approach digital citizenship not as a set of concrete rules but as an organized principles-based path to turn individuals into productive and socially responsible lifetime digital citizens. This course requires purchase of the text, Digital Citizenship in Schools 3rd Edition ISBN 978-1564843647 by Mike Ribble, available online at Amazon, ISTE and other online outlets.
