Digital Citizen
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

A Google Slide Deck introduction to the MITECS competency Digital Citizen - Students recognize the rights, responsibilities and opportunities of living, learning and working in an interconnected digital world, and they act in ways that are safe, legal and ethical.

Example: Eleventh graders in a Careers Course created LinkedIn accounts and entered a resume of their work and volunteer experiences. After careful research on topics about the kind of work they thought would be interesting to do, they composed short articles, which after a peer review and teacher review, they revised, before publishing the results on their LinkedIn account. During the composition time, the teacher taught about respectful commenting through an author study of comments on articles online. The students analyzed the comments in a fishbowl structure and explored what made comments constructive and positive versus disrespectful or toxic. After some practice dialoguing in a private discussion board on a wiki, students posted live comments on each other’s LinkedIn articles.

Questions for Reflection:
- How do the MITECS complement core content?
- How might you and your colleagues develop cross-curricular experiences to support the MITECS?
- Which of the competencies are you most familiar with?
- Which competency is an area of growth for you, as an educator?
