Digital Citizenship: if you wouldn’t say/do it in person, don’t say/do it online either!

Next week is Digital Citizenship Week, and we’ll be learning the foundations of manners on the internet, as well as thinking carefully before posting, how to keep yourself from making a career-limiting move 15 years before you will be trying to make a career, and protecting yourself from being cyber-bullied or victimized by people with no netiquette!

Digital citizenship can be defined as the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use. And just as librarians lead our students on the shortest, richest path of wisdom through books, naturally we also impart our best practices for efficient information gathering online! It’s a big task, and I, for one, am grateful to be imparted with the privilege of leading children through such an exciting and innovative journey!
