Canyons School District’s digital citizenship goal is to empower students to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in our digital world. From lesson plans, videos, student interactives, assemblies, to professional learning and family outreach materials, our hope is to provide schools with information they need to take a whole-community approach to digital citizenship.
During the October SCC meeting, the school-based technology team (including a DigCit rep.) and administration will share the school technology plan with the SCC. This plan includes how the school will provide student technology education, parent technology education and information about our district’s filtering and networks support system.
- Does the SCC feel it has recieved enough information to determine if the filtering systems and supervision practices are appropriate?
- Does the SCC feel it has received enough information about the school’s educational effort to instill a student’s desire to be a good digital citizen?
- Does the SCC believe the school has a viable plan to present internet citizenship and safety information to the parents in the community?
If the SCC has not received adequate information to support the school’s digital citizenship efforts, the council should produce a recommended action plan. Upon completion of the review by the SCC the Principal, SCC Chair and DigCit Building representative will submit the school digital citizenship plan through CSD Dashboard.
Each school has a Digitial Citizenship representative that receives training and resources from our Educational Technology team in our Instructional Supports Department. This team provides school representatives with monthly technology tips, lesson plans, and parent information to distribute throughout the school. From cyberbullying and photo sharing to digital footprints and online safety, we want to help students and parents address important topics and have meaningful conversations about making great choices in their digital lives.
