For help integrating Cyber Civics™ into your classroom or curriculum: Centers in Blue Coming Soon! Four years ago, Journey School, a Waldorf-inspired public charter school in Aliso Viejo, California, let me begin teaching a three-year, middle school digital literacy program — called “Cyber Civics™.” The curriculum, which emphasizes critical thinking, ethical discussion and decision making through hands-on projects, problem solving, and role-play, is based on published, academic research.

Responding to Cyberbullying: Guidelines for Administrators

No Bully, Common Sense Media, and the California-based law firm Fagen Friedman & Fulfrost believe that promoting social and emotional learning, creating a school climate where respect for diversity and skills is valued, and educating students, families, and faculty about how to behave ethically online are the best ways to prevent cyberbullying. However, we recognize that incidents may still occur. The chart above can help you respond to these incidents, although it does not constitute legal advice.

According to a recent Pew Internet study, 62% of teens surveyed said their posts can only be seen by friends, and 19% said that their profile is “partially private so that friends of friends or their networks can see some version of their profile.” Students that learn digital citizenship at school are more likely to practice it at home. Introducing School-Wide Digital Citizenship Practices with iPads.

An elementary school in our district recently got 30 iPads and asked for some advice implementing them with students and teachers.

Introducing School-Wide Digital Citizenship Practices with iPads

In addition to suggesting some starter apps, I recommended that we have conversations with kids around the appropriate use of these devices. While almost every child has used an iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone, the exciting learning opportunities these mobile, Internet-connected, media creation devices create also open the door to new challenges. Cyberbullying or inappropriate web publishing happens more through the camera than regular computer use does; the mobility of the device combined with the reality that multiple users are using the device with no personalized, password-protected, network-tracked accounts makes it more challenging to keep track of who is doing what with the device or that the device itself is safe. Rather than tell the students how they should and should not use iPads, I felt compelled to involve the students in the conversation.

Digital Citizenship: Our Responsibility? YES!

The conversation centered around how vital it is to teach students the skills necessary to become functional digital citizens. I really think it’s time for all teachers everywhere to examine what more we can do to facilitate student growth in this area. Every time I hear a story about plagiarism or cyber-bullying or inappropriate use of social media, I shake my head.
