Digital Citizenship:
7. Digital Rights & Responsibilities: those freedoms extended to everyone in a digital world.
Just as in the American Constitution where there is a Bill of Rights, there is a basic set of rights
extended to every digital citizen. Digital citizens have the right to privacy, free speech, etc. Basic
digital rights must be addressed, discussed, and understood in the digital world. With these
rights also come responsibilities as well. Users must help define how the technology is to be
used in an appropriate manner. In a digital society these two areas must work together for
everyone to be productive.
Objective: By the end of the lesson students will be able to define how to use technology in an
appropriate manner by creating a dos and donts chart in groups of three with 100 % accuracy.
Hook: Interactive true or false questions displayed on smartboard to the whole class asking
students wither or not given cinereous are safe, legal, or ethical.
Purpose: Students can reflect on what they believe is important when using technology in
regards to being safe, legal and ethical while developing critical thinking skills as a group.
Materials: Markers, poster boards
Input: safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology
Modeling/Guided practice: Model and give students on the smartboard several incidents of
being safe, legal and ethical on the internet and incidents of not. Then let students share if what
the teacher is doing is safe, legal, or ethical, or not.
Check for understanding: Students will show their poster as a group to the rest of the class and
explain why they listed the dos and donts and why they are important.
Independent Practice: Students will write to reflect in their journals and think about if they
should or will make any changes to any of their digital pages or technology to be more safe,
legal, or ethical.

Closure: Students have the opportunity to share out loud personal experiences where they felt
something was unsafe, illegal, or unethical in a form of digital technology.
As an educator I can address the first theme of digital citizenship by making sure all
students have digital access. This means that no matter a students social economic status or
disability, they will always have access to technology in my classroom. For example, if a
students has a physical disability and cannot reach the smart board, I can design a tool to reach
further so the student can reach the smartboard. Another example of digital access is making sure
that students who may not have a computer or I pad at home, have access to these technologies
in the classroom. In addressing theme two, digital commerce, students must be taught how to be
safe on the internet. For example, for older students, when buying things online make sure the
site is legit and safe to use your credit card number. Another example for all ages to be educated
about is making sure students are aware of online predators. Theme three, digital
communication, talks about the different forms of electronic communication. As an educator I
look forward to incorporating skype into my lesson plans. This can be a fun engaging way to let
speakers such as firemen or someone from a different country speak to the students from a
In theme four digital Literacy, students should spend time in the class every day to access
technology. This means students should be free to use I pads or computers on a regular bases at a
young age. Using these tools will help students develop digital literacy naturally and freely. This
will increase students confidence when using technology and then more difficult tasks can be
introduced. Digital etiquette is important because students all can relate to being bullied, and
now with technology students are being bulled on the internet for all to see. This includes people
posting pictures or mean things about another person or recording a video without someone
knowing. My class will come up with their own set of rules/promises about how they will use

digital etiquette at school and outside of school. Students will form their own lists from their own
ideas and each student will sign it. The Digital Law theme involves crime and hacking. I will
make it clear to my students the laws regarding using other peoples identity and the effects it
can have on the victims. Also the seriousness of hacking into peoples personal accounts and the
consequences one would face if caught. Theme seven Digital Rights and Responsibilities
discusses the right to privacy and free speech in the digital world. Students should understand the
importance of privacy on the internet. Teachers need to stress that what is put on the internet is
seen by the world and that although we indeed have free speech we should always think before
we post things.
Theme eight discusses digital health and wellness. As an educator who grew up
when cellphones were not popular and not many people had a computer in their homes, I want to
stress the importance of internet addiction and obesity. Many kids spend most of their time
indoors in this day and age, and less time outside getting exercise and running around. There is a
growing problem with childhood obesity and it is linked to addiction to technology. Students
must exercise being responsible when using technology and know when its too much. I will
practice in my classroom a way to teach students the health risks of continually using electronic
devices and ideas about what to do outside instead. My assignments will include requirements to
go outside and collect different objects or observe birds and write about it. These assignments
will give students a reason to be outside. The last theme, digital security, discusses selfprotection online. I will stress to my students the importance of frequently changing their
passwords to protect themselves from people stealing there information. Also explain to them
what a virus is and how it can affect their computer device negatively. Addressing these nine

digital themes of digital citizenship will increase the knowledge and awareness of my students in
the technology world they live in.
