Digital Citizenship Lessons for the Library. Today’s children are rarely satisfied with using only the library’s print materials and online databases.

Digital Citizenship Lessons for the Library

With the increasing sophistication of digital technologies, even young students can bypass the local librarian to search for resources, tools and information online through common search engines. Such freedom carries with it great responsibility. School librarians have always embraced the responsibility for teaching information literacy — critical skills for locating, evaluating and using information — but children also need to know the literacy of digital citizenship — how to conduct themselves safely and responsibly in the digital world. Because school librarians serve all schoolchildren, overseeing the progression of digital citizenship lessons across the grade levels seems a natural role for them. Librarians do not need to take sole responsibility for digital citizenship. Partnering With Parents Parent-targeted Resources Digital Citizenship Curricula Grades K–2 Videos Activities Books.

This is partially because I never teach anything the same way twice, but it's also because each year I learn something new. Sometimes I learn the hard way when things don't pan out the way I planned in the classroom, sometimes I learn because something I didn't plan arose and worked out well, and sometimes its due to my own self-education as I prepare to teach my annual research unit.
