Here’s the Hangout on Air I did Monday night with Elizabeth Calhoon, the Academic Technology Specialist in Santa Clara County (California), and Tanya Avrith, the Lead Digital Citizenship Teacher for Lester B. Pearson (Canada). We talked about a lot of great K-12 resources for digital citizenship. I’ve always been super impressed with Tanya’s work in Canada, but I didn’t know that Elizabeth actually helped with the digital literacy curriculum put out by Google! Both of these ladies are super knowledgeable- and I really enjoyed chatting with both of them!
Here are some of the resources we talked about:
Common Sense Media – provides K-12 curriculum, family media agreements, graphite, 1:1 roll-out guide, etc.
Common Sense Media Digital Passport – web-based course for students, grades 3-5 (also available in Edmodo platform)
BrainPOP: Digital Citizenship- includes interactive games and resources (grades K-5)
Google Digital Literacy & Online Citizenship curriculum- three lesson plans on source credibility, digital footprint, and scams (grades 6-8)
Google Understanding YouTube & Digital Citizenship- appx 6 hours of lesson plans about cyberbullying, copyright, and privacy (grades 9-12)
