  • NCSAM (Week 3) and Digital Citizenship Week

    Posted by Susan Dupre at 10/19/2016

    As part of this observation, parents are encouraged to "Take the Pledge" to empower kids to use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully, thus providing young people with the digital citizenship skills they need to thrive in today's world.

    Here's the pledge: I pledge to empower my kids to use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully. Together, we will provide young people with the digital citizenship skills they need to thrive in today's world.

    Why take the pledge?  While technology provides increased opportunities for students, there is also a responsibility to teach them about technology's pitfalls so they can avoid them.  If we don't teach our kids, who will?
