Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this session is to provide strategies on how to design complementary self-paced digital citizenship courses for students and teachers. To support L.A. Unified students and teachers in accessing digital citizenship resources, we designed a course within a learning management system to meet the needs of L.A. Unified stakeholders. We will demonstrate how to create a self-paced course that is both rigorous and relevant to those who take it and which results in building the DigCitCommit capacity of students and teachers.


Introduction: Presenters will introduce L.A. Unified's self-paced digital citizenship courses -- one for students and one for teachers. Both courses were designed to empower all learners to thrive in an increasingly digital environment.

Course Design: Presenters will provide an overview of the activities designed and implemented in the course to support learning of students and teachers. For example, the course offered opportunities to learn about with district policies that support digital citizenship; engage in promising practices that models digital citizenship principles; and identify actionable strategies to put their digital citizenship knowledge into practice.

Outcomes: Presenters will conclude the presentation by sharing outcomes of both self-paced digital citizenship courses, such as showing original work produced by learners who completed the course and evaluation feedback to help participants identify strategies to create their own self-paced district-wide course.
