Have you Ever Thought About it?

Your Digital Dossier.  How much digital content have you created for yourself-- and for other people?

As adults, we may be marginally aware of the impact a digital presence can have.  But our students?  Maybe not.  They have grown up in this digital world, and they don't often have the natural sense of consequences to manage their online responsibility. This is where digital citizenship comes into play.  We teach our students how to be good citizens and treat themselves and others with respect.  The time has come to broaden that perspective to include an online environment.
