Digital Citizenship Week 2020

Every year, the third week of October is dedicated to teaching good digital citizenship in hopes that all students will become safe and smart when using technology. This year, during Digital Citizenship Week 2020, Warren is celebrating with these daily themes for the week. Please take a moment to review the listed resources.

Monday: “Stay Safe Online”

What does it mean to be a good digital citizen? Making the most of our online experiences starts by keeping safe and secure.

Tuesday: “Protect your own and others’ private information”

Be aware that everywhere you go online, everything you post, and everything others post about you leaves a trail. It’s called your digital footprint.

Wednesday: “Stand up to cyberbullying”

We want to treat people the way we want to be treated… be a friend, not a bystander. Let cyberbullies know their online behavior is unacceptable.

Thursday: “Give proper credit when we use others’ work”

Remember that the law protects individuals’ rights to creative work. Just because you can find it on the internet doesn’t mean that you can use it.
