Tool #10 - Underneath it All - Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship could be a difficult concept for my Pre-K children to comprehend;however, becoming a member at such a young age it is important to make sure children understand the responsibility of being a digital citizen.

Several items to communiate would be to "Be Kind" online, just as they have to be in person. Students must understand to remain "Safe" and know that they don't give out any personal information such as name, address, school name, phone #, etc. Finally, the students understand not to set up passwords or navigate to sites that have not been approved by the teacher while working at school.

NetSmartzKids is a site that I thought would make learning about internet safety more enjoyable for Pre-K children. I also thought BrainPop would be a valuable resource that will give the students good resources.

If we start digital citizenship in Prek/K...then our students will be ready...as the old books says...everything you need to know you learned in Kindergarten.
