Students will create a foldable for the 9 Key P’s for Digital Citizenship.  Students will do a “Walkabout” and gather information about each of the key points and add the information to their foldable.

Teachers and students will engage in a class discussion about each of the keys and how they relate to their digital experience in 6th grade at DMS.

After all information has been gathered, students will post to Padlet which one they believe is the most important and why.  They must also attach a picture that demonstrates their mental image of what proper digital citizenship looks like to them.
