Digital Citizenship

As classrooms rapidly switched from brick and mortar classrooms to online learning environments we must remember to set expectations for our children as they utilize online platforms such as Teams and Canvas.  It is imperative that children begin to understand the digital footprint they are creating and the proper way to communicate & collaborate in online environments.  We would like to share a great site called Common Sense Media that has wonderful resources for Parents to share with their children on digital citizenship and setting up parental controls.
