We all know that digital citizenship education is crucial, especially in these rapidly evolving times of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
To keep pace, students need to acquire digital skills, including digital citizenship, which can facilitate participation and maximize opportunities.
At AISB, we believe that digital citizenship education is not just about a long list of don'ts; it is also about the do's that help create thoughtful, empathetic digital citizens who can wrestle with the important ethical questions at the intersection of technology and humanity.
We also recognize that these skills cannot be just one-off lessons or a bolt-on programs delivered at a set time of the year. Our ultimate goal is to see the work integrated into the curriculum in all subjects and for all grade levels.
In Elementary, digital citizenship is woven intentionally into the SEL curriculum.
The AISB Social Emotional Learning Plan (internal access only) shows conceptual understandings with learning outcomes for each unit.
Each unit has its own planner, complete with concept acquisition tasks and a wealth of resources. We use the Common Sense Education curriculum as a core resource.
In Secondary, our efforts have been more organic and dependent on ad-hoc needs.
Some targeted lessons have been delivered via the Advisory program, and some, as appropriate, are naturally interwoven into the different subjects.
We are in the process of rethinking how to integrate these lessons more intentionally into the curriculum. Keep an eye on this space!
