How DO we develop Digital Citizenship

It is now week two of #DCMOOC.
I am so thankful to be part of this wonderful community and its collective body of knowledge. Our multi-level, multi disciplinary network provides a wealth of perspective and inspiration on how to assist students into developing into the best that they can be. This week I’ve chosen to practice collecting information and providing proper attribution by remixing a few inspirational thoughts from my PLN. Thank you to Terry Johanson and her blog post Just Like Nancy, for moving me into a DOing frame of mind. Please feel free to share or add any ideas or comments.

The above image reminds me that Alec Couros highlighted the reality of our digital society during his live session  Introduction to Digital Citizenship. Citizenship is something that we should strive to DO in all our daily environments.

 

DO give students opportunities to practice

 

DO offer practical explanations

 

DO make it DO able

By providing your students with  short and informative how to videos such as the one produced by fellow #DCMOOC member Jordan Epp

 

 

DO share resources.

What about you? What DO you DO?

  1. Your question “what do you do?” is such a powerful motivator for every one of your readers to take up the challenge to go from passive gatherers of knowledge to active contributors. Now I need to think about this and DO something about it.

    • Thanks Terry. I too want to be an active contributor. James Baldwin once said “Children have never been really good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them”. I hope our students and our children will have lots of positive habits to observe.
