Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship Task Force

Our Mission

The Digital Citizenship Task Force is passionate about connecting character education with the media-centric world our K-8 students are surrounded by. We are committed to keeping colleagues informed and exposed to current trends, and to building our own capacity as Information Age educators. Through this, we hope to achieve our ultimate goal - to provide students with opportunities to develop the skills and traits they will need to demonstrate safe and ethical behavior in the 21st Century.


Our Work

In our first year, 2012-13, we culled many resources and philosophies to develop a list of topics we plan to focus on in grades 2-8, which support our Character Counts! initiative. This list is still evolving but offers our district a strong foundation and starting point. The supporting lessons are from Common Sense Media and will be delivered in a variety of settings including classrooms, labs, and libraries. 


In 2013-14, our focus will be on building each teacher's capacity to facilitate discussions at age appropriate levels around these topics, ranging from safe searching, to online identity, privacy, and cyber bullying. These discussions and activities should be purposeful and connected to authentic, technology-rich, integrated curriculum. To do this, our Task Force will:
