Digital Citizenship Week: Teaching Tip Tuesday: Take The Pledge

No comments

It's Digital Citizenship Week! While we encourage and promote year-round digital citizenship, this week we will focus each day's blog post on tips and tools to help students use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully.Here are three simple steps teachers, parents, and students can do to celebrate this week. 



1. Take the Digital Citizenship for All Pledge.


Join over educators by simply adding your name to this online pledge. As a bonus for taking the pledge, you’ll also get our Digital Classroom Starter Kit for free!


Take the pledge


2. Ask your students to create their own pledges.


How can your students become super digital citizens? Have them write their own personal pledges about being good digital citizens in their everyday lives. A pledge could take the form of a motto or a slogan, a song, or a rap.


3. Challenge your families to have a #DeviceFreeDinner.


Digital citizenship doesn't end in the classroom. Home environments also shape kids' relationships with technology. While we promote technology use for learning, fun, and bringing people together, it's also important to balance media and tech use with undistracted face-to-face time.


Share the #DeviceFreeDinner challenge with your families to drive home the message of balance with device use. Copy and paste the following URL into your class website, newsletter, parent email, and/or social media posts to get your families to take the challenge:https://www.commonsensemedia.org/device-free-dinner
