Digital Citizenship in Schools, 2nd Edition
Updated to reflect the refreshed NETS•S, this bestselling ISTE book is a must
for all educators as they lead students through the digital environments that
are a part of their everyday lives.
Today, billions of people all over the planet interact using various
technologies. This interaction has created a digital society that affords its
members opportunities for education, employment, entertainment, and social
interaction. As in any society, it is expected that digital citizens act in a
certain way—according to accepted norms, rules, and laws. Most of today’s
students are entirely comfortable with technology, but are they using it
appropriately? Do they understand their roles and responsibilities in digital
society? How can teachers help students become responsible digital citizens?
Digital Citizenship in Schools, Second Edition is an essential
introduction to digital citizenship. Starting with a basic definition of the
concept and an explanation of its relevance and importance, author Mike Ribble
goes on to explore the nine elements of digital citizenship. He provides a
useful audit and professional development activities to help educators determine
how to go about integrating digital citizenship concepts into the classroom.
Activity ideas and lesson plans round out this timely book.
