An all-inclusive roadmap to citizenship in the 21st Century

In exploring the various aspects of digital citizenship, he aligns its pedagogy with the ISTE standards definition.

  • Cyberbullying, "sexting," and other safety concerns
  • Students′ ability to creatively access and critically assess information
  • Respect and ethics regarding copyrighted information
  • Communicating appropriately in an expanded and public realm

Rich with examples, professional development and classroom exercises, resources, and policy perspectives, this book will resonate with educators, parents, and anyone interested in the merging of education with technology and its impact on our children.
