Featured: Media Literacy Week

Media Literacy Week (October 25-30) is an annual national campaign hosted by MediaSmarts to promote digital and media literacy.

What is Digital Citizenship and Why is it Important?

If we use digital devices to connect with society on any level, we are digital citizens. A good digital citizen uses technology in meaningful ways to improve their community, engage respectfully with others and assess validity of online information sources. From gaming and social media, to shopping, homework and video chatting, our world is connected online. While many elements of this world are beyond our control, if we focus on what we can control and encourage open communication with our kids, the path to positive digital citizenship can be smooth. As parents, it is important to consider and discuss what healthy Internet use looks like for your family and remember that everyone is different. Teaching kids to be positive digital citizens can help them evaluate information online, prevent bullying and promote overall health and safety.
