Digital Citizenship at Westside

Media students are focusing on digital citizenship skills. This month, we look at our digital footprint. Digital footprints are the result of online activity. Websites visited, social media accounts, pictures posted online are all part of a person’s digital footprint. As digital citizens who work and socialize online, we need to be aware that what we do online is visible to others, so it is important to be respectful of others and take care of our online reputations.

Third and fourth graders have recently started using gmail accounts and are learning to follow rules of polite etiquette (netiquette) for online behavior. We examined the NPS Internet Policy so that everyone understands the rules and is aware that cyberbullying will not be tolerated. Students are also learning to use the Explore research tool available in Google Docs and Slides to know how to correctly site information and follow copyright laws. Soon, they will begin keyboarding lessons to help them become more proficient with typing skills.
