You Can Do It!

The exciting news is that you do not need a complete curricular overhaul or extra time for stand-alone digital citizenship lessons. You can help your students become amazing digital community members by making small changes to the individual units, lessons, or projects that already exist in your curriculum. As members of a classroom community, you can explore life in digital communities in ways that are purposeful and authentic rather than forced or added-on. For instance:

• Identify opportunities in which your current content standards can be “hacked” to include aspects of digital citizenship.

• Ask students if they can make connections between class lessons and their experiences in digital communities.

• Share stories like Maya’s, and ask students how they may have responded in her situation.

• Encourage your students to contribute to, not just consume from, their digital communities.

• Celebrate students’ digital creations as you would their physical ones: In addition to hanging students’ artwork on a bulletin board, showcase a digital contribution, such as a student’s original SoundCloud track, on your classroom website.
