Although I haven't begun to see students in the STEM Lab yet, I've been visiting classrooms to talk about digital citizenship. This year, Stuart Mesa has set the goal of becoming A Digital Citizenship certified school. Woohoo!! Basically, this means that students will receive lessons that focus on various areas of digital citizenship. So, why is digital citizenship so important? Watch the video below to get a better idea of the amount of time tweens and teens spend online.
So, excluding the time spent using media for school or homework, tweens (age 8-12) spend about 6 hours and teens (age 13-18) spend about 9 hours online each day. It is important that students are learning about what it takes to be a good digital citizen! We will be providing lessons on digital citizenship and handing out literature to parents as well. Join Stuart Mesa in our effort to create good digital citizens, one student at a time.
