Should Schools be Required to teach digital citizenship?
Teachers should be responsible for teaching students digital citizenship. This in my opinion is an issue that teachers should address because the students will be required to use computers on school grounds. We do not want them to get the idea that all computer access is good. Helping them understand computer safety is apart of school safety. It is important to help them understand that internet is infinite and that the things they write can be seen by the whole world. Nothing is truly private although we have a bunch of privacy settings to almost all websites. We are responsible for our children’s understanding of the world wide web. There are plenty of ways we can do this, we can show the kids their digital footprint, give them creative assignments to explore the web in a safe way. We can show them these things because the web is not a bad place but a great place for learning and exploration.
