Students will use the Common Sense Digital Citizenship Curriculum to learn how to be responsible and respectful digital citizens. Throughout this unit we will cover the following topics in relationship to digital citizenship: digital footprint and reputation, self-image and identity, relationships and communication, cyberbulling, information literacy, internet safety, privacy and security, and copyright. The Common Sense website has a plethora of resources to help parents in guiding their children to make responsible choices using digital media.
Please see their website here for additional information.
Google Apps for Education
Throughout the year we will learn how to use core Google Apps. Students will use Docs, Slides, Drawings, Sheets, Maps, and more. Google Classroom will also be used to deliver resources and assignments.
We will use the Code.org site as a platform for learning basic coding skills during technology class. Coding is important because it is a way to teach children to think logically and sequentially and develop problem-solving skills.
