You may not have heard of the term “Digital Citizenship,” but you are probably already familiar with the behaviors and expectations that being a good “digital citizen” consists of. In this online course, you’ll learn the many different areas within the realm of Digital Citizenship and perhaps begin to think critically about your own behavior.
Included here are 9 separate sections: each one a different topic. Within each topic are various links to videos, interactive games, and informative pages or articles to be read.
To receive credit for completing this unit:
Click on each link and read the information or do the activity there.
Click on the link labeled "Assignment" at the bottom of each section and complete or submit information as it requires.
Each assignment will be checked and you will be given a cumulative grade for this unit which will count towards your overall Language Arts 9 grade. For that reason, give it your best effort – and you’ll learn a lot along the way!
Problems or questions completing it? Please email Mrs. Harris and let me know before the due date so we can work it out!
