Comfortably 2.0: The Digital Citizenship Survival Kit

Comfortably 2.0: The Digital Citizenship Survival Kit
It's a simple little prop I use when teaching Digital Citizenship to our K-8 #aurorahuskies students. I love utilizing props to try to get my point across to students.

Toothpaste Imagine the information that you are putting online is like the toothpaste coming out of the tube. The survival kit is very simple.

After I blogged about the original kit, I had a plethora of teachers email me or send me a tweet me asking if it was okay to use this idea at their school.
