Parent Meeting on Digital Citizenship Education at Westwood HS

Mr. Richter began the library media center’s year of Digital Citizenship education by meeting with parents to discuss the goals of the program. Parents discussed a parent-child agreement that would facilitate conversations about these important internet issues. Teachers also began bringing their classes to the library for a series of lessons to enable students to explore the issues surrounding cyber safety and the ethical use of technology. The year-long program enables every student to discuss the issues appropriate for his or her grade level. The incoming 8th grade class for example, learned about their digital footprint, online reputation, and how to write effective student emails to their teachers. Seniors began the year discussing privacy issues concerning their personal information online. All students complete a”Digital Citizenship Advice” Google form at the end of each lesson where they can briefly articulate a tip they would share with others about that day’s online issue.
