Each month our PBIS program hosts a monthly theme. The theme for October is Digital Citizenship. October 14th - 18th is also Digital Citizenship week. We facilitate lessons, events, and activities each month related to the monthly PBIS theme.
For Digital Citizenship month, all students received a Nearpod lesson in advisory about creating a positive digital footprint. There are lots of FREE Digital Citizenship Lessons available on Nearpod through Common Sense Media.
To reinforce the information students learned during the PBIS lesson about creating a positive digital footprint, I created digital safety tips to display on our TV monitors throughout the school.
To create the digital safety tips, I used Canva, a free digital media tool. Canva has tons of excellent, FREE, digital media templates. Canva is also very easy to use. You can create teams and share your designs with other staff members.
Here is an example of what the digital safety tips look like on the TV monitors.
How do you celebrate Digital Citizenship Week at your school? What activities or lessons do you facilitate to promote digital safety?
