Defining digital citizenship
- Citizenship within a country. Discuss:
- What is citizenship in New Zealand? http://education.citizenship.govt.nz/primary/teachers/. See this this unit plan on citizenship and belonging to groups and what it is to be a New Zealand citizen.
- Can you have it stripped from you? Why?
- Citizenship within a school. Taking your school values and matching them to specific behaviours and dispositions:
- What does it involve?
- How do we do it well? (What is citizenship? How do you know when you see it?)
- How do we do it poorly? (What is the opposite of citizenship? How do you know when you see it? )
- Who decides who is and isn’t a good school citizen?
- Citizenship within a class. Use post it notes to create a define map that outlines different resources, actions, places and examples of citizenship in a broad scope.
Does your class have other values outside of the school scope that you want to value?
What is digital citizenship?
The online environment changes the way we act and the way we perceive others. This makes citizenship a harder thing to manage.
In this environment, how de we stay consistent with our school/class model of citizenship? We need specific actions and situations to mark out the way.
- What does it involve
- how do we do it well (What is digital citizenship, how do you know when you see it )
- how do we do it poorly ( what is the opposite of digital citizenship, how do you know when you see it )
- Who decides who is and isn’t a good digital citizen
Recall your school values and core behaviours that show those values.
Recall the digital citizenship behaviours that line up with your school/class values.
How does digital media change your personal and school values and the way you demonstrate them to others?
Do you have more power, responsibility, anonymity, freedom?
What is one real, relevant online situation where it’s harder to be consistent with our values of citizenship?
What are the specific behaviours you see that make it a concern?
What is the effect of these behaviours?
How can we improve those behaviours as a class?
Consider the role of leadership in making changes to how everyone behaves online.
How do you participate, allow, encourage, different behaviours online?
