Digital Citizenship

Greenwood County School District 52 digital citizenship program
 
Why teach Digital Citizenship?


In accordance with the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires schools to educate students about appropriate online behavior. This includes education on interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and on cyberbullying awareness and response.
 
Our district feels strongly that all students should be prepared to be good citizens in digital environments, just as they are expected to be good citizens in the physical world. Greenwood 52 students will receive instruction on the safe and proper way to use technology and on digital citizenship topics including: internet safety, privacy & security, relationships & communication, cyberbullying, digital footprint & reputation, self-image & identity, information literacy, and creative credit & copyright. 
 
Our district digital citizenship document utilized by district personnel is listed below.  We have based our curriculum content on the resources provided by Common Sense Media, an excellent resource for the most current topics of digital safety.
