Digital Citizenship

     We will be focusing on discussing Digital Citizenship over the next two weeks in the library, and how to be safe while on the internet.  I created these posters and bookmarks to help teach the information to my students, and have a way to review them throughout the year.



     After doing the lesson all day, I came to realize that I needed a few things to make the lesson go smoother.  While the poster is great, I spent time writing and/or drawing the 4 main pieces (the head, the heart, the belly/gut, and the feet) with my younger kids to begin to introduce the topic. Sadly, I'm not a very good artist, so I realized I needed some additional posters to help me teach this lesson.



So, I added a picture of the boy, and then larger pictures of the explanation pieces so that you can literally "build" the poster as you talk about the issues. These pieces would also be a great way to review these concepts throughout the year as well.   
I've used these posters for a few years now, and it's been going well.  I always had the students repeat the saying with me, as they pointed to that body part.  The more we did this, the more I began to notice that some parts had too much information for the students to remember.  So this summer, I wanted to find a way to fix this so that it was easier for the students to remember.  After some suggestions from friends, I included 6 different body parts to help the kids visualize what to remember:
  • I use my head.
  • I use my eyes.
  • I use my voice.
  • I use my heart.
  • I use my hands.
  • I use my feet.

Here's what the update looks like now:
 I went ahead and updated the bookmarks as well as the individual pieces so that you can build the main poster with the students. 

If you would like to use these posters with your own class,
you can find them here at my TpT Store or at Teacher's Notebook.
If you have already purchased them, all you have to do is re-download the file
and you will have the updated versions as well. 

I hope you find them useful! :) 

Sandy

  4. We had a workshop and our presenter showed us your blog and your posters about digital citizenship. They are very "kid" friendly. I would love to use them with my grade 2/3 class. We have watched the Garfield video called "YAPPY" I would love to use your posters for further teaching. Do I have your permission?

  18. Hi Sandy, I love your poster and was wondering if I could use an image of your poster for my slide share on digital citizenship in schools for my Masters in Teacher Librarianship. I have read the posts above and realise that you are happy for people to do this as long as they link back to your store but felt it was important that I asked for your permission first. Kind regards, Lisette

  22. Hi Sandy,

    Great post with some amazing ideas! I would love to use the concept for a bulletin board in one of the elementary schools I work in. The image of the boy, did you create it? If so, can I have permission to use it? I would like to blow it up and use it as the centerpiece in my bulletin board and add tips for digital citizenship around it that correlate with our PBIS program. If you didn't create it would you share where you got it? Thank you so much for considering and I hope you have a great day!
