Why Digital Citizenship Matters
Are your students using the internet safely? It only takes one misstep to cause serious damage to a person's identity, finances, or device. This unit teaches skills your students will use every single day.Sign Up, It's Free!
Digital Citizenship Vocabulary
The course introduces new terms and expands on those your students have probably heard but don't fully understand (what are “terms and conditions,” anyway?).
The included pre- and post-tests clearly demonstrate students' comprehension and growth, as well as areas that could benefit from further discussions.
