Digital Citizenship Week

October 14–18, 2019

Amplify your students’ voices and give them ownership of their digital lives

Digital citizens think critically about what they see online, understand the benefits and risks of sharing information, and balance screen time with other activities. But digital citizens aren't born—they're taught by teachers like you!

Kick off this Digital Citizenship Week by giving your students the space to voice their perspectives on topics important to them. Check out our fun new #DigCitWeek kahoots and digital citizenship video discussion activities for all ages (details below)!
