Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Comprehend that teaching these skills is not something separate and should be emphasized daily across the curriculum.
Identify digital citizenship framework and the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regards to technology use.
Design instructional strategies that allow students to create and maintain a positive identity while engaging in positive social interactions in virtual spaces.
Design instructional strategies that allow students to respect and protect the copyrighted/intellectual property of others.
Design instructional strategies that allow students to use digital tools/technology to gather, evaluate, and/or use information for learning in order to conduct effective research and create original works.


Digital Citizenship and Digital Literacy has to move out of the computer lab/media center and into the classrooms. The presenters will walk through how to plan a lesson that uses digital literacy and digital citizenship skills. As a group we will model the process of taking any subject/content and work through the process of integrating the skills and language in a lesson as a teacher would.
