Digital Citizenship skills are integral to students' success in the modern world. Knowing how to interact academically, safely, and respectfully in a digital world is no longer a choice, but a necessary skill for our students. As teachers, we must ensure there is a constant infusion of digital citizenship skills in our course content to help teach and reinforce those critical skills for our students. This course will lead you in an exploration of some of the important components of digital citizenship that affect you, your classroom, and your students.
