Digital Citizenship with Intent » Superintendent's Blog

Digital Citizenship with Intent » Superintendent's Blog:

 "A couple of weeks ago I wrote a column for our local paper, the Lethbridge Herald on Digital Citizenship. In many ways it was a tongue and cheek article that compared the teaching of archery and the teaching of digital citizenship. The premise was that while we would never allow children to pick up a bow and arrow without any instruction we often give our children technology without any formal training or boundaries. And while I received many re-tweets when I posted it on Twitter and a follow up editorial in the paper, one article will never be enough. Digital citizenship or more correctly defined as responsible citizenship in a digital age will never be achieved without intentional and ongoing teaching and learning at school but always beginning at home."
