Format: Paperback
Too often, technology is seen as another class that students go to, as opposed to being an integral part of the larger curriculum. To counteract that, Mike Ribble and Gerald Bailey offer a framework for district- or site-based teams to understand digital citizenship and how it can affect their curriculum and school. It's written primarily for educators and technology leaders.

Ribble is is an educator and author; Bailey is an author and professor of educational administration and leadership. Both specialize in technology leadership and staff development.

Ribble and Bailey structure the book around `nine elements of digital citizenship' to help educators better understand the variety of topics that constitute digital citizenship and to provide an organized way to address them. The nine elements are: digital access, digital commerce, communication, literacy, etiquette, law, rights and responsibilities, health and wellness, and digital security.

Chapter 4 provides 16 activities designed to give teachers, staff, and administrators a better understanding of digital citizenship and its implementation in a school or district.

Chapter 6 presents five foundational lesson plans that teachers can use to teach the fundamental principles of digital citizenship. Guided lesson plans cover topics including cell phone interruptions, how businesses use technology, creating and using mp3 files for teaching and learning, cyber bullying, plagiarism, purchasing items online, and file sharing. Following each section is a list of web based resources for digital literacy.

The authors emphasize that it's also important to educate parents about digital citizenship. Parents can help teachers provide a consistent message to students.

Not an engaging book at all. You don't need an entire book to explain the concepts of digital citizenship. A short power point would do. But it was a required read for class.
