"At a time when we invite students to explore and use digital writing tools, we must also teach digital citizenship skills." ~ Jayne Marlink, Executive Director, California Writing Project

"One of the challenges and important priorities for K-12 today has to be broadening our understanding of what it means to be a digital citizen, so that we're talking about young people as producers and managers of information and perspectives, and not simply as people we need to keep safe and civil." ~ Joseph Kahne, MacArthur Network on Youth and Participatory Politics


NewsFlash: In response to reader requests for a Digital ID page specifically for digital citizenship videos, organized by our 4 foci, we have started building this page. We invite you to add to the collection!

Note to Teachers: For those of you interested in harnessing the Digital ID wiki as a "flipping" tool to teach digital citizenship concepts, we've created a "Digital ID Concepts Assessment Tool" in 3 forms:


Feel free to clone and then modify any of these 3 formats to suit your own classroom use.

Note to Parents: This video gallery with the accompanying "Digital ID Concepts Assessment Tool" can be an excellent resource for you to use at home as well. Debating whether to give your young adolescent a cell phone or not? Perhaps they can begin to "learn and earn" that privilege by viewing a variety of videos and documenting what they learn, so that they can earn more access. Caught your child using technology inappropriately? Assign them some relevant videos to watch and have them demonstrate their understanding as a way to begin to earn back your trust.
Let us know of other strategies you've used, parents, to proactively teach your kids the principles of digital citizenship, and we'll share them on the Digital ID wiki.
