We have all experienced times when a lack of care in online activities has brought unexpected and potentially negative results, for ourselves or our students. Perhaps we have shared inaccurate information, without being vigilant in checking our sources, and then had to spend time making corrections and apologies. Or maybe we have made a public comment that we later regretted in a forum or a social platform. This course stresses the importance of ensuring that students and teachers are aware of the morality and consequences of their online activities—i.e., what constitutes being a good “digital citizen”.
During this course, participants will raise their awareness of the complex personal and social issues involved in allowing students to work, learn and interact online, both for themselves and as representatives of their families and their school communities. The course will also stress the importance of teachers guiding their students in behavior that will keep them safe in online environments.
Participants will be provided with examples of a range of existing school-wide policies and processes designed to ensure that students (and teachers) are well informed about what being a responsible “digital citizen” looks and feels like.
By the end of the course, participants will be well prepared in a range of behaviours and practices to enhance digital citizenship and media literacy, including how to guide students in acquiring digital skills and competencies from an early age, how to promote digital literacy and fight disinformation, how to evaluate and filtere data, information and digital content, how to protect devices and people through careful sharing of personal details as well as the health, wellbeing and our environment.
