February Digital Citizenship Tip for Students:
Not everything found on the internet is true! Look at the end of the web address for trusted domains like .edu, .net, .org, or .gov. Look for sources given for statistics. Look for sites free of grammatical errors. Try to find another site with similar information to confirm your findings.
February Digital Citizenship Tip for Parents/Guardians:
Younger children need help when they are looking for information online. Even safe websites can contain links to other places. Encourage them to ask permission before searching the internet, and talk to them about what is and is not acceptable to look up.
Digital Citizenship is a way of acting, thinking, and being online. It is thinking critically about what you see and read online, acting responsibly and ethically on social media sites, and protecting private information. Want more information?
