Digital Citizenship Week - Resources (CA Dept of Education):

Digital Citizenship Week
The California Department of Education (CDE) in collaboration with Common Sense Media will celebrate CDE Digital Citizenship Week January 23 - 27, 2017.

Digital Citizenship

Photo of Superintendent Tom TorlaksonThe California Education Technology Blueprint titled: Empowering Learning (PDF) makes 19 recommendations. Recommendation 2 states: Ensure student safety by outlining policies and best practices to prevent cyberbullying and protect student data.
The blueprint calls to “ensure student safety by outlining policies and best practices to prevent cyberbullying and protect student data. It is important to teach students about the ethical, legal, and safe use of online information and resources. It is also important to help students learn about how they can protect themselves and their personal information in online environments.”
The goal is to identify resources that can help students learn 21st century skills such as digital citizenship, information literacy, and safe and legal Internet use (for example, those surrounding plagiarism and pirating music and movies).

Meet CIPA Requirements

Common Sense Media offers CIPA Toolkits External link opens in new window or tab. for Administrators and Teachers. What is CIPA? The Children’s Internet Protection Act External link opens in new window or tab. is a federal law enacted by Congress to address concerns about access to offensive content over the Internet on school and library computers. CIPA imposes certain types of requirements on any school or library that receives funding for Internet access or internal connections from the E-rate program. Since July 2012, schools subject to CIPA are required by the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act External link opens in new window or tab., to provide for educating minors about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms, and cyberbullying awareness and response. The suggested lessons for California’s Digital Citizenship Week also provide suitable selections to meet the CIPA requirement for the 2016–2017 school year.
