First Annual Digital Citizenship Night
Freedom Hill Elementary students will present what they have learned about digital citizenship during the school’s first Digital Citizenship Night on Friday, September 21, at 6:30 p.m. During the first month of school, both digital citizenship and project-based learning take precedence at the school as students examine the guiding question, “How can you as a community member inform students and the rest of the community about digital citizenship?” Sixth grade students explore the topics of information literacy, creative credit and copyright, privacy and security, internet safety, self-image and identity, relationships and communication, cyberbullying, and digital footprint. Working collaboratively in groups, each team of students will present their final projects to the fifth grade classes, and then to the entire community on Digital Citizenship Night; the community is welcome to attend. Final projects include music presentations, brochures, skits, and videos.
