How Gaggle Helps a District Teach Digital Citizenship

Digital citizenship is an area of focus for most schools across the country. The goal is to help bring a foundational knowledge and skill set to children so that they can effectively and responsibly use and interact with digital media and the internet. It also addresses the role of children being content creators who are active participants in these online community spaces. 

Each one of us leave a digital footprint in the realm of the internet. Each post that is made public, picture that is added, or tweet that is sent builds an overall profile of a person. Just like children need instruction on how to speak and interact with adults, peers, and friends, they also need guidance on the etiquette for digital interaction.

Students of all grade levels can benefit from learning about digital citizenship, from privacy and security to cyberbullying and appropriate communication. By working these topics into the curriculum, educators can help prepare students to take ownership of their digital footprint.
