Digital Citizenship | Keeping our community digitally savvy at school and at home

Schools are increasingly proactive about teaching students how to become successful Digital Citizens. In addition to creating strategic documentation and developing class programmes, parents and whānau are also becoming better informed about the need for their children to be digitally savvy online, at home. 

For the sake of sharing with others, What policies, systems, strategies and resources is your school using to ensure students are safe on the Internet at school and at home? 

And what happens when parents get it wrong with technology?

Recently a school shared how a group of parents were misbehaving online; sharing delicate information about other children, inferring they were bought up badly from lower socio-economic backgrounds - comments all visible in public Facebook conversations. The school was concerned about ways to address this problem.

What do you think? Have you seen similar misuse of social media from your community and is this something a school needs to address? Are safe and appropriate Internet practices an issue for the whole community or should we remain focused on expecting our teachers and students to be successful Digital Citizens?
