Fostering Digital Citizenship « Technology and the Common Core I recently returned from the CAL-ED Annual Conference for Parents, Interpreters, Teachers and Administrators. I presented on Fostering Digital Citizenship. The goal of this workshop was to provide a basic understanding of Digital Citizenship as well as resources and ideas for application in the classroom (and at home). The second half of the workshop, participants walked through 6 stations focusing on Digital Citizenship topics including Digital Life 101 (9 Elements of Digital Citizenship), My Digital Footprint (online ethics), Do You Really Know Who You are Talking To?
