Digital Citizenship is a huge topic that includes a knowledge of not only staying safe online, but also privacy, copyright, information literacy, among other topics. In the classroom, our teachers are tasked with explicitly teaching digital citizenship to our students as technology is integrated into the curriculum. That curriculum has the largest impact if there is common instruction at both school and home. The most effective way to teach digital citizenship to students is for teachers and parents to have a common understanding of what digital citizenship entails. In her article, What Your Students Really Need to Know About Digital Citizenship, Vicki Davis details the difference between proactive knowledge and experiential knowledge. Proactive knowledge includes digital citizenship skills that everyone should know. Davis refers to these as the “9 Key Ps” of digital citizenship: passwords, privacy, personal information, photographs, property, permission, protection, professionalism, and personal brand. Experiential knowledge refers to the lessons that students learn through experience and exposure to the technology. This is what teachers refer to as, “Teachable moments.” To learn more about proactive knowledge and experiential knowledge, read Davis’ Edutopia article at http://sl.psd401.net/9keyPs.
