Digital Citizenship in Action

Digital citizenship is about more than online safety. It’s about creating thoughtful, empathetic digital citizens who can wrestle with the important ethical questions at the intersection of technology and humanity.

In Digital Citizenship in Action, you’ll learn how to teach and model digcit so you can help students be responsible and active in online communities. The course starts with the basics and moves outward to guide you in exploring various sets of learning standards, identifying frameworks for digcit education, integrating digcit across content areas, and even sharing how students can connect online to participate in social justice and sustainability projects.

This is a 15-hour, self-paced course with ongoing instructor support.
