Description

By the time students reach middle school they have an online life. Everything they can experience in the real world — learn, explore, chat, make friends, and even make enemies — they can also experience online. However, many students do not understand that online behaviors have offline consequences. Online social networks are an important tool, capable of teaching students about responsible digital citizenship and strengthen classroom communities. Using the “Forest Grove Grid Project” and “Our Nest” as a model, learn strategies to teach responsible digital citizenship and how to create and manage your own classroom social network. (Grades: Elem/MS)
