District Digital Citizenship Program
Why teach Digital Citizenship?
In accordance with the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires schools to educate students about appropriate online behavior. This includes education on interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and on cyberbullying awareness and response.
Our district feels strongly that all students should be prepared to be good citizens in digital environments, just as they are expected to be good citizens in the physical world. Greenwood 50 students will receive instruction on the safe and proper way to use technology and on digital citizenship topics including: internet safety, privacy & security, relationships & communication, cyberbullying, digital footprint & reputation, self-image & identity, information literacy, and creative credit & copyright.
