Digital Citizenship: It’s More Than a Poster!

Let me begin with a huge disclaimer.. These posters are not intended to substitute for true, open and honest discussions with kids, nor are they meant to replace the daily modeling that should be taking place in showing kids how to be a great digital citizen through our own actions. I’ve always been open with students. These statements on these posters are a result of discussions that happened within our classroom and most importantly, they are not just some ‘rules’ that I posted at the start of the year and expected kids to understand and follow. Being a great digital citizen is a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. But, in too many classrooms, schools, and homes, it’s not happening at all. Kids are growing up in a digital world, that is a given. But, being responsible with technology use? That’s an option that we can be a part of each and every day. Not just by hanging a poster, but by living it.

    Do teachers have permission to print your posters if they credit your website? Just checking. Love the idea of posters!! It builds the case for responsibility throughout the year and not just during Internet Safety Week!

    Thank you for sharing these posters/resources. I have used them in class with my Primary School children and displayed them in our ICT Suite for all to see, I have made reference to your site too! Thank you!!

  6. naturally like your website however you have
    to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with
    spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I will certainly come again again.

  7. Thank you for sharing. I appreciate your generosity.
