Web Etiquette

I know here in New York there are many ads about cyber bullying and the like. In the school I used to teach in we had a 5th grade teacher who used a closed in-system network with his class. He would teach them how to network and how to use etiquette so when they were out "in the wild" they would hopefully be better online citizens. His idea was that the technology wasn't going away so we'd better teach them how to use it properly. Kudos to you for starting them that young!

Digital Citizenship

I teach elementary enrichment classes and love to integrate technology. I felt that it was important to address digital citizenship with my students and began the school year focusing on this topic. My students are not allowed to have their own accounts on Web 2.0 sites, so cyberbullying was addressed, but not a focus. Another important part of digital citizenship involves plagiarism. Many students don't understand what plagiarism means and too often are culprits. We also addressed verifying information found on the internet before you accept it as fact.
