Secondary teachers are invited to participate in a book study designed specifically with 6-12 educators in mind. Digital Citizenship in Action: Empowering Students to Engage in Online Communities by Kristen Mattson. In her book, Mattson creates a road map for moving from the traditional sense of “don’t do this” and “marketing yourself for college” to recognizing that a critical part of digital CITIZENSHIP is being in a community with others.
While students need to understand some of the realistic consequences that can result from making poor choices online, they also need to see models of respectful online deliberation-just like they need to see models of any new skill you teach. Mattson encourages the reader to hack the Standards by inserting a digital citizenship lens to what you are already teaching and make small changes to individual lessons, units, or projects that already exist in your curriculum.
Our secondary focused Ed Tech book study will begin on October 10th and will end November 14th. Each week teachers will read a chapter from the book, incorporate their learning into classroom activities, and post about their learning with our online platform, Actively Learn. Teachers will reflect on current practices and begin to provide opportunities for students to be participatory digital citizens. Teachers who wish to participate must purchase their own copy of the book.
