With the growing amount of online activity teens and kids are engaged in, it’s important for them to know how to make smart choices. Digital citizenship is the practice of being responsible and making safe decisions that help build a positive digital footprint. Below are some resources to engage the whole family on the topic of Digital Citizenship:

–Learn more with videos and lessons available from Common Sense Media Education.

–Turn your Jenga boardgame into Digital Citizenship Jenga! Don’t have Jenga? Try coloring popsicle sticks/toothpicks instead, use a deck of cards and assign questions to the suit/number, or create your own game.

–Engage with online games that teach critical digital citizenship skills: Digital Passport (grades 3-5) or Digital Compass (grades 6-8).
