What is digital citizenship?
As more students interact digitally–with content, one another, and various communities–the concept of digital citizenship becomes increasingly important. Our goal is to create a community of learners who understand how to use digital resources effectively, efficiently and responsibly. With proper guidance from teachers and parents, our students can make the Internet a better place for sharing and learning.
Digital citizenship is appropriate and responsible behavior with regard to technology use. We provide instruction in digital citizenship for students and encourage them to participate in related classroom discussions. As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain a safe technology environment, Oak Harbor Schools have adopted the following Electronic Resources and Internet Safety Policy.Digital citizenship at homeThe following resources provide additional information about digital citizenship at home.
