Digital and Media Literacy
Keeping Our Students Safe & Healthy Online
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY 'DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP'?
“Digital citizenship is the responsible use of technology to learn, create, and participate” -Common Sense Media
According to the state of Washington, digital citizenship includes the “norms of appropriate, responsible, and healthy behavior related to current technology use, including digital and media literacy, ethics, etiquette, and security. The term also includes the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, develop, produce, and interpret media, as well as internet safety and cyberbullying prevention and response.”
In Highline, this is included as part of our strategic plan goals around Digital & Media Literacy.
In addition to students receiving instruction on digital and media literacy in the classroom, the following are some resources that families can use at home.
