Are you a strong digital citizen?

Empowering students to think critically and make informed choices about how they create, communicate, and treat others in the ever-evolving, 24/7 digital world is a priority for our campus and Midlothian ISD.  Students need to know the decisions they make communicating on the Internet contribute to their digital identity, or digital tattoo.

With this purpose in mind, Midlothian ISD declared this week, October 1-5, Digital Citizenship Week.  In morning message and throughout the instructional day, we are focusing on five critical themes tied to Internet safety through daily activities and instruction including:

Monday – Copyright & Fair Use
Tuesday – Digital Etiquette
Wednesday – Digital Safety
Thursday – Cyberbullying (LME is also doing “SUPER Hero Day”)
Friday – Digital Footprint

As your child’s first and most important teacher, we strongly encourage you to learn more about what you can do at home to help your child become a responsible Digital Citizen.  Please view these sites for more information.
