Digital Citizenship

1-TLT-Digital citizen 05.mp4

In Klein ISD, EVERY student enters with a promise and exits with a purpose. One tremendous tool students have to help them explore, create, innovate and learn is their Klein device, which brings a wealth of connected learning opportunities to their fingertips.

Whether teachers use Google Classroom or Schoology, using a Klein device connects students to a world of learning like never before. Students have the opportunity to own their own learning! They can use their Klein device to access class materials, create assignments, and connect with their teachers and classmates in digital learning spaces. Students also have the ability to show their thinking and understanding in innovative ways using your device.

As with any technology, students must understand the responsibilities that come along with access to Internet. Klein librarians regularly teach digital citizenship lessons and provide resources to help students make good choices while on line.

  • Etiquette -- Treat others as you wish to be treated. Be kind. Be respectful.
  • Access -- Help ensure that all citizens have equal access to the Internet.
  • Law -- Use the Internet in an ethical and law-abiding manner.
  • Communication -- Make smart decisions, such as protecting your identity and being kind, when communicating.
  • Literacy -- Learn how to search for and process digital information. Discern reputable, trustworthy, accurate information.
  • Commerce -- Take precautions to keep financial information out of the hands of criminals while conducting online purchases.
  • Rights & Responsibilities -- Digital citizens have rights (privacy, free speech, etc.) and the responsibility to use the Internet in an appropriate manner.
  • Safety & Security -- Use precautions, such as virus protection, data backup, strong passwords, and smart browsing and communication habits.
  • Health & Welfare -- Don't spend too much time on the computer. Protect your physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
