Working, learning, playing, and socializing in the digital world is a major part of our students' reality. Now, more than ever, educators must embrace their role in helping students safely and responsibly navigate these digital spaces as they engaged and interact with people and content online. Digital Citizenship education is vital to this process as we guide students in understanding digital literacy, digital responsibility, and digital health and wellness along with promoting online safety and the prevention of cyberbullying. Digital Citizenship Week is the perfect time to collectively focus on the essential skills that will be continuously reinforced throughout the school year!
