Major Project Update….Try and Teach

This week I will be focussing on specific Digital Citizenship lessons within the building support. I am introducing Digital Citizenship and Literacy to the primary grades and expect to enjoy many conversations and learning with the students. As an educator, actively teaching the knowledge I have learned will authentically engage the students and help my own practice. I will share the slides I have been creating and pictures of my journey. My goal is to establish classroom conversations and allow the students to guide some of the lessons. I anticipate creating classroom pledges with the groups I am working with. Common Sense Media offers such amazing tools and lessons that will support my lessons.

I will be creating lessons and teaching them for the following grades:

  • Grade 1-3
  • Grade 5/6
  • Grade 7/ 8

  1. Planning for a variety of grades is a great approach, Kola, as you can really see the progression and building of topics as students get older. This makes me wonder if having Digital Citizenship as some kind of elective or ‘prep’ class that is taught by the same person/people each year would help to build on the skills that students have learned previously? I think the reason everyone has a hard time conceptualizing how Dig Cit would look as mandated curriculum is because it feels like such a niche topic that requires a lot of specialized expertise, almost like specializing in a subject area for high school teachers. Having Dig Cit/Media Literacy as part of teacher education in university, or offering in-depth PD to teachers would help ease this discomfort.


    1. I like your idea about a specialized role. Why couldn’t this work? I know there are supporting documents on the curriculum but no direct outcomes ( correct me if I’m wrong). I have so much learning to do. One step at a time. I’m happy to be learning so much from everyone as well. I would like to try some of your ideas with our daughter. Thanks for popping on!
