Hex 6: Digital Citizenship (overview)

In this class, we will be focusing on 9 Elements of Digital Citizenship.

Video: Living in a Digital World

Consider the following questions:

1.  What does it mean to be a citizen of a community (school, city, state, national, etc.)?

2. What are some rights and responsibilities of a citizen?

3.  How is being a digital citizen similar and different to other kinds of citizens?

4. Where can you find policies of different websites?  Why is looking at policies important?

Next, you will be creating rules of conduct for being a responsible, positive citizen online, with your table groups.  

Group roles:
-Facilitator (you like to take charge and can keep everyone on task)
-Recorder (you can write and type quickly)
-Spokesperson (you like to talk)
-Abstract thinker (you can think of creative ideas)

Everyone should contribute!

Come up with five rules for proper behavior when using the Internet.
