October 14 to 18 is Digital Citizenship Week. Although the focus this week is on K-12 students and schools, this week presents many opportunities to think about how we should all be good digital citizens and encourage good online behavior when interacting with others, now and throughout the school year.

According to the California Department of Education, “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).” There are a number of resources for teachers and staff to review to help students be aware of digital citizenship and develop skills that they can use when working online.

Happy Digital Citizenship Week and make sure to help your adult ed students become good digital citizens!
