1. The 3 things that I think are crucial to explain to kids this age regarding digital citizenship are:
*overall safety ( posting personal info, meeting new people, etc)
*taking care in what is posted ( once it's out there you can't take it back-bullying, etc.)
*Plagiarism in use of research
2. We have used I-safe, brainpop and other resources when talking to our students about this during 6th grade tech classes.
3. The best approach we have found is to teach is initially in isolation, to address the topic, but revisit it over and over again where appropriate to refresh the initial learning.
4. Parents should be encouraged to view the same sources we use with the kids and also can attend parent seminars given by tech aware parents or teachers regarding computer safety.
