In today's schools and districts, just saying "no" to bad
technology practices is not enough. This leadership posture can
take the form of extreme blocking and filtering of websites,
providing little access to devices and declining to integrate
digital tools and resources into learning out of fear of what else
a student might do. Such a mindset can also lead to adults choosing
not to engage -- or being unable to engage -- in conversations when
students share stories about what a peer did online or through the
latest app. Digital citizenship curriculum needs to be taught at
two levels at once -- horizontal (the world immediately around
students) and vertical (connecting to the rest of the world). This
book provides education leaders a strategic road map that
demonstrates how to incorporate these concepts into the curriculum
so that digital citizenship isn't just "one more thing," but is
threaded into the DNA of how educators teach and work. The book
provides a five-year-plan for developing a digital citizenship
program in your school; covers such topics as digital ethics and
leveled approaches to digital citizenship; walks through the
digital citizenship responsibilities and opportunities inherent in
various roles, including library media specialists, classroom
educators and special ed teachers; and offers strategies for
spreading digital citizenship internationally and explores the
future of digital citizenship.
