This is an introducation lesson plan to digital storytelling using short narratives as a base for the students' stories. The platform used in this story to create the digital stories is Adobe Spark but many other platforms could be used. It is targeted for 3rd graders.
In collaboration with Common Sense Education, this lesson helps students learn to think critically about the user information that some websites request or require. Students learn the difference between private information and personal information, distinguishing what is safe and unsafe to share online.
Students will also explore what it means to be responsible and respectful to their offline and online communities as a step toward learning how to be good digital citizens.
This is a Lesson Plan discussing Social Media and how makes one feel created by Common Sense Education that I have incorporated into a lesson for my 10th grade resource students. It is just one component of Digital Citizenship that I want to start out with in my classroom. Common Sense Education has several to choose from. Check out their website for more great ideas and resources!
This lesson will help students learn from four different scholastic scope articles about digital citizenship. Students will learn one article and teach others about it so then by the end they will understand all four articles. They will present the information by doing a choice board with their group to decide how they want to present the information.
This lesson should be used to teach digital citizenship standards. Students will present standards using Adobe Spark.
