Creative Digital Citizenship Activities
with BOOK CREATOR
What does it look like to promote digital citizenship in the classroom? Students can practice digital citizenship skills and show off what they’ve learned. In this book, I’ll take you through a handful of digital citizenship activities featuring Book Creator. We’ll look at resources to learn more about digital citizenship, spotlight classroom stories, and hopefully get your wheels spinning about ways to promote creativity as students learn about digital citizenship.
The team at Book Creator has been exploring this topic for some time. You might have even read Book Creator Ambassador, Dr. Beth Holland’s article 6Cs of education – Citizenship and Character education. It includes an overview of digital citizenship and references the work of Michael Fullen and the 6 Cs.
Digital Citizenship in Action
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) describes digital citizenship as:
Using technology to improve your community.
Engaging respectfully online with people who have different beliefs than you.
Using technology to make your voice heard by public leaders and to shape public policy.
Determining the validity of online sources of information.
In addition to the resources created by ISTE, the folks at Common Sense Education also have a fantastic curriculum on digital citizenship. Designed for K-12 students, this is the first place to stop if you want to learn more about this topic. We encourage you to check out their free teaching resources.
