Find ready to use standards-based lessons that teach digital citizenship for grades 4-8. Lesson topics are categorized into two groups (Communication and Collaboration, Digital Citizenship), and include Privacy, Media Literacy, Cyberbullying, Copyright, Information Literacy, and more. Integrate these digital citizenship lessons into the content area subjects: ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Most lessons start with a video for the adult and also have a video for the student. Download videos in a variety of formats (mp4, WMV, MOV) or copy the link provided. The Media Literacy lessons have several examples of advertisement videos that use YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. Under Tools and Resources, slide down to Digital Citizenship Survey; scroll down that page to find a professional development webinar that hosts a middle school teacher discussing digital citizenship.

Create a school mission statement regarding technology use or rules for technology. When doing research projects, be sure to review.

The FBI - SOS (Safe Online Surfing) Challenge offers activities aimed at learning about cyber safety. The site features six grade-specific "islands" for students in grades 3-8. Activities highlight various aspects of cyber security through educational games, videos, and other interactive features. Each island has either seven or eight interactive areas to explore--with a specific cyber safety lesson. Islands also have central characters and visual themes. For example, fourth grade features Ice Island, complete with falling snow and penguins. There is also a testing component to complete upon teacher sign-up of classes and completion of all grade level activities. Free sign up isn't required to use the online activities but is necessary to take the final exam as the site requires an access key.

Your one-stop place for bullying resources, whether it is cyberbullying or face to face, this site is loaded with twelve games, webisodes, online polls, interviews, and more. The webisodes specifically would be a great way to show students the varying types of bullying, and how to recognize it in school or at home. Click on the "What Adults Can Do" link on the left to access the "Materials for Educators" link. Download TFK Extra (Time for Kids) webisodes to print out for classroom reading. Teacher guides are also available. View the extensive Tip Sheets for adults. The site is primarily geared towards Elementary students as Middle Schoolers most likely will not be attracted to the cartoon approach this site takes, but it would benefit an Elementary classroom.

A Spanish version of this entire site is available with a click from the Home page.

The site challenges students to learn about the rules of cyber world and find their inner superhero. This site provides wonderful information to educators on a variety of "cyber" topics. For students to fully use this site, they must register (via snail mail). However, many of the informational links are available online with no registration required. Please note the link to their safe search engine was broken at the time of this review, but there were links to other safe search engines. In addition, the site of the week seems to be from 2005. Even so, there is a lot of useful information available at this site for students, teachers, and parents.
