Today in class we will discuss Good Digital Citizenship, and what it looks like in this learning environment.
For most of you, this will be a unique environment to learn and interact within. For the entire semester you will be learning not only "English", but also the digital media skills that will make you successful in future work environments.
The uniqueness of the classroom also brings a host of new realities to the learning space that we need to discuss. You are already in "cyberspace", but for the most part, the Internet is as scary and unregulated as the Old West in American folk-tales. Your actions in this environment can carry implications far outside the walls of Grey Highlands. That is why we are going to spend today's period looking at some of the issues that surround being a good "digital citizen".
We are going to start our discussion by watching this short movie, produced by students for students.
You will need to download this worksheet that we will be using to frame our discussion.
