Digital Literacy Curriculum is designed to ensure that our students are following safe online practices. Twice a year schools will organize an assembly or class presentations followed by a discussion or writing assignment regarding appropriate online behavior. Site Leadership will determine the appropriate content and process to best serve the needs of the school site.
Assemblies and classroom presentations educate students to avoid dangerous and inappropriate behavior and to make smart decisions while becoming a digital citizen with a focus on the following topics:
Recognizing and reporting inappropriate online behavior
Understanding copyright laws
Teachers will use selected videos and lesson plans in an assembly or class discussion to initiate an age appropriate conversation on the above topics with their students in order to build their understanding on the dangers of the internet. Additionally, teachers should revisit the discussion with follow up questions and/or online resources to continue the conversation with their class after the assembly or classroom discussion.
