Expectations of conduct
When I was growing up, there were expectations my parents had of me for my personal safety and development:
- Ask permission before going somewhere.
- Don't talk to strangers. -- (With the exception of my parents/entrusted adult being aware of the conversation.)
- Ask for help when I need it.
- Be polite and use good manners.
- Help others when I can, and add to their lives.
What resources are available to us?
Tap into resources to start the conversations and learning.
- Our district has curriculum from iSafe.
- Edublogs is an amazing resource for teachers. Not only will they educate us about Internet safety, but they also provide an authentic context for applying it in the real world. See their blogging challenges.
- You can always view my Diigo bookmarks for other ideas.
- I love BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr's videos too.

Expectations for personal safety and citizenship extend beyond our physical community and into our digital community.
- How will we respond to the changes in personal safety and citizenship to include our digital communities?
- What digital citizenship and safety expectations should we set for ourselves, students, or schools?
- What authentic learning opportunities can we offer students to safely practice digital citizenship?
- What else are you thinking about related to this post?
This post was inspired by SMES Principal Heather Wallace. Thank you for making proactive choices to focus on digital citizenship and Internet safety. Thank you for inviting me to work with your staff! I also want to thank Sheri Edwards for helping me with my Essential Question for this professional development/post!
