Digital Citizenship

Description:

In this lesson, students will be able to understand what it means to be a good digital citizen through the use of writing activities and internet research.  

Students will be split up into for different groups of 5 students each. They will rotate through four different centers. Only 1 coputer is available for the classroom. Each center goes over a different aspect of digital citizenship including, internet lies, the Rule of Three, domains and copyrights, and cyberbullying. Students will receive packets with activities for each center that they will need to complete. At the end, each group will make a poster board about an aspect of digital citizenship that is assigned to them. 

This online platform fits in the first activity for the first center of the lesson.
