I have put together a Collection by Destiny full of important resources, sites, research, articles and so much more.
You can get to the Digital Citizenship Collection here. Remember....you can make a Copy of this if you would like and add books, eBooks and eResources from your Destiny to a Collection to. This ties students and your school community directly to the catalog.
You can get to the Digital Citizenship Symbaloo here.
I am super excited to share my new book Staying Safe Online from Cantata Learning, with my friend Emily Arrow singing, to the Collection....
....Symbaloo too!here. You will love sharing this with your students as they sing, learn and practice skills for being safe online.
Since this Collection and Symbaloo would be overwhelming to share with kids, I created one just for them!
This one includes Google's Be Internet Awesome, the suite of digital citizenship games from Common Sense Media, PBS Webonauts and lots of games, eBooks and resources from NetSmarts, Kids.gov, BrainPOP, Professor Garfield and more!
If you see any that are not included, please let me know and I will add them right away. And this is public, so use it, share it and you can even turn off the sharing and use it as your own.
In this webinar, we explored the definitions and importance of digital literacy and citizenship. I also told my story of integrating digital literacy and citizenship into the library and school by creating a supportive and engaging curriculum, program and community.
I focused on various programs and resources that support digital literacy and citizenship.
One that I am very passionate about and that is perfect for learning the skills yourself is Project Connect. Follett created Project Connect to advocate and support librarians as leaders in Future Ready Librarianship skills, including digital literacy.
They have also developed an online microcredential course to help librarians and others develop a vision and plan to promote digital learning within their library. I recently took this course and loved sharing specifics during the webinar.
I know you will enjoy learning how you can sign up and get involved in Project Connect too. You can do that here.
It is important for all of us to understand how to best empower our students as they become responsible digital citizens and critical consumers of information. Please watch the webinar to find out more!
Be AWESOME today friends, as we empower and teach our digital citizens!
