October 21-25 is Digital Citizenship week! Digital Citizenship is essentially being able to harness 21st century technologies to participate in the world at large, engage civilly in online discourse, and understand how to navigate 21st century tools and content.

There are a number of ways to celebrate Digital Citizenship in your classrooms or at your schools. Common Sense Media has some great ways to engage students, parents, teachers, and your community as a whole through education and activities.

While it’s a great time to specifically highlight Digital Citizenship, these are concepts and tools we should play with all year!
