Digital Citizenship

As more students in Jeffco receive personalized learning devices through our TechforEd 1:1 device program, we want to ensure that all students and families receive information about digital citizenship and digital wellness. 

In August all 5th graders learned about Expectations and Device CareWe established classroom rules and procedures which support a culture of responsible use and communicate clear guidelines.  We reinforce habits which identify devices as a learning tool.
Motto:  We are responsible learners with devices.Guiding question: How do I care for my device as a tool for learning?

During the month of  September, our fifth grade classrooms  engaged in digital citizenship learning related to creating and maintaining one’s Digital Footprint & Identity. Our digital footprint, or online presence, has long-lasting implications, and it is important for children and young adults to realize that digital footprints are often public and potentially accessible by anyone. This month, you can help your child(ren) learn how they can contribute to a positive digital reputation, both for themselves and for others, by using these resources:

Monthly Motto: We define who we are.

Discussion Question for School and Home: How can I cultivate my digital identity in ways that are responsible and empowering?
