Thinking Digital Citizenship

INSPIRED!

citizen slideMy colleague @lindarubens pointed me in the direction of a fantastic post on Digital Citizenship by Craig Badura. Craig’s ideas are simple but effective because they ask students to do a very important learning technique: Make a connection between ‘unrelated’ topics.

CONNECTING LIFE : ONLINE & OFFLINE

Forcing them to make the connection asks the students to think on a deeper level. I have found in the past that only using digital examples encourages some students to assume they know it all. Kids will say,  “I know all about Facebook, sir” without  considering properly, any wider ramifications of their online actions and switch off to some extent.

So, you know me! I couldn’t resist putting these ideas into individual slides that I could use as weekly topics aside my normal teaching. My favourite three are Toothpaste, Tattoos and “First impressions” as these will have increasingly long-term and  effects on young people from now onwards.

Here’s the PNG version but there’s also a full 24MB PDF is here

  1. Can I present something to our staff using your images? In light of what went down for us this week (and the place of social networking and consequences of poor digital citizenship) – it has come to light that there are far too many people without a knowledge of a digital world. I think your posters make it clear.

  3. I’d like to get permission to use with my students. Is this possible? I see that you have given others permission but would like to have it in print as a lesson for my students. Fantastic slides!
