ACTION PLAN OVERVIEW: Creating Digital Citizens

Google Tools: Google docs, Google Sites

As a teacher, I strive to empower students to become digital citizens; that is, students who think critically, behave safely and ethically, and participate responsibility in the digital world. This means giving students opportunities to use technology in a variety of ways as well as teaching explicitly about certain topics.

Students learn to be creators of content as well as how to be respectful and responsible consumers.
