Michael Boddy, Facilitator of Town & Country ICTPD Cluster Palmerston North got the above young people to tackle the big question of 'what does being a positive digital citizen mean?'.
We would like our students to become successful digital citizens who have an authentic voice in the community.
Each school chose two year five students to become ‘Student Leaders’. These students meet throughout the year to collaborate with each other on the following topics:
- How to be a positive digital citizen – this is our current topic.
- Creating Digital Citizenship resources to be used by classes.
- How to use digital tools creatively in the classroom.
- How to teach and support other students to become independent eLearners.
Have you seen other students / schools do the same? How are you approaching this area? Please share examples which you have come across, facilitating yourself or if you have a comment—all are welcome below.
