Help students to be smart in a digital world - - teach digital citizenship! 

In this webinar you will learn about InCtrl, a series of free, standards-based lessons and videos that teaches key digital citizenship concepts, and hear a middle school teacher describe how he’s initiating conversations about digital citizenship with his students and helping them be smart online. 
 
Digital Citizenship is a holistic and positive approach for teaching issues like internet safety and security, digital literacy, digital ethics and responsibility.  It also helps students build and maintain positive digital reputations.  Digital Citizenship is part of the ISTE NETS standards for students, teachers and administrators. 
 
This webinar covers the basics of digital citizenship, the thinking behind creating InCtrl, and effective use of these resources in an 8th grade classroom.  Participants gain an understanding of digital citizenship and receive tips and examples for weaving InCtrl into the curriculum.
 
Speakers:
  • Frank Gallagher, Executive Director of Cable in the Classroom in Washington, DC
  • Eric Langhorst, American history and technology teacher at Discovery Middle School in Liberty, MO
 
This webinar was produced by Cable in the Classroom as part of Digital Citizenship Week during Connected Educator Month
