Tales from a Tidy Teacher: Digital Citizenship

I decided to show a video created by Common Sense Media. I asked students to specifically watch the different images featured in the video. Afterwards, we discussed how the "fingerprint" image makes us realize that everyone is unique and leaves a mark when online. The "football stadium" image is a great reminder that the Internet is a massive public space.
