TeachersFirst's Digital Citizenship Resources
Explore this Editor's Choice of the best tools to teach digital citizenship found on TeachersFirst. Modeling and helping students to learn about digital citizenship is the responsibility of every adult in our students' lives, including teachers in all subject areas and parents at home. As adults learn more about digital citizenship, including wise online behavior and awareness of our own digital footprints, we must continue to share and openly discuss these issues with the young people in our classrooms and homes. Stay up to date on current issues, stay aware. Be sure also to visit the TeachersFirst Edge for teacher-friendly tips on using today's web tools safely and within school policies.
