OUR TOP DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP RESOURCES

 

 

Below you will find our Top Digital Citizenship Resources for parents and teachers. How to use them? Download the CyberWise Guide to Digital Citizenship E-Book. It walks you through the steps of how to access and use much of what's below.

Our criteria for each resource is that it is:

  • Proactive- It empowers young people to use powerful technologies confidently and wisely.

  • Not Fear-Based- Although cyberbullying, sexting, and online safety and such are certainly important concerns, we prefer resources that help young people learn how to harness the power of digital technologies in positive ways that prevent such actions in the first place.

  • Behavior Focused- It’s about neurology, not technology (apologies to the original author of this great line, wish we knew who??). We love lessons that can be conducted even without technology because they reaffirm our belief the digital citizenship is about basic behaviors… like being nice.
