What is Digital Citizenship?
Digital Citizenship includes appropriate and responsible use of technology by staff and students and is an important expectation for the security and data privacy of our 1:1 iPad environment.
In compliance with the federal Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) St Paul Public Schools provides students with lessons on:
- digital citizenship
- online safety and privacy
- appropriate online behavior
St Paul Public Schools partners with Common Sense Media to provide lessons on digital citizenship. School can earn Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship Certification after completing additional lessons and holding a parent outreach activity.
All licensed staff should be familiar with the concepts of digital citizenship, online safety and privacy and appropriate online behavior.
Schools can earn the Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship Certification by completing the following:
- Teach 3 required CIPA lessons
- Teach 2 additional lessons during the school year
- Record all lessons in Campus
- Maintain a parent resources section on the school website
- Have a link to Common Sense Media website on the school website
- Sponsor a parent outreach activity about digital citizenship.
All information and artifacts from the parent outreach activity should be submitted to Chris Turnbull.
Schools that earn the certification receive a digital badge to display on the school website and a banner.
