I put my hand up to develop some resources for the digital citizen’s project. Why this unit ? I believe that Marc Prensky and his term “digital native”  has been misunderstood by teachers and has  encouraged them to avoid basic skills instruction. The result is that I see students, every day, that really have little grasp of the basics. I am not suggesting that skills are taught in isolation but I believe we need to ensure that our students are digital citizens from a skills perspective, as well as attitudinally and that we engage them in a structured purposeful manner, to that end. I have created a first draft of a few basics, I have left the doc open and would welcome comment - additions, from this group on the proposed topics.  The activities are the next step.
