Teaching Digital Citizenship

3 Credits
Digital Citizenship is the new frontier in education. Growing numbers of educators and parents alike are realizing that students today exist in two worlds -- the digital world and the real world. For years, educators have provided instruction when it comes to navigating the real world. Something we do not address, however, is how to successfully navigate the digital world. We can no longer afford to be absent in our students' digital lives. This course is designed to help you teach your students how to become effective digital citizens.

NOTE: Required book must be acquired separately.

This course is applicable towards the Online Teaching Certificate.

I've been a middle school social studies teacher for 14 years. I can't imagine doing any other job. I love teaching students, and consider myself fortunate to be working in a career that I'm so passionate about. I'm also passionate about helping my fellow teachers do what they love to do better. Two years ago, my school asked me to become the Technology Integrator for classroom instruction (in addition to maintaining my full teaching responsibilities). I jumped at the opportunity. Even though it is often difficult doing both roles well, I'm glad to be in the classroom full time while also acting as a resource for my colleagues. My online courses are the result of my desire to help as many teachers as I can in any way possible.
