Students will learn about what it means to be digital citizens.
Students will understand the importance of using courtesy and respect online.
Cyber safety is probably one of the most relevant lessons that can be taught to students today. Most kids and young adults are well acquainted with cell phones, computers, iPads, Kindle’s etc. all of which can have internet access. I believe most students do not realize the potential dangers of communicating with an unknown person online or how words used online can be harmful to others.This lesson is created to inform students about how to become responsible digital citizens.
