Noel and I have discussed using the Cyberethics site, which has several examples of situations kids may come across on the internet. It will be a good way to discuss how to handle different situations that may occur.

At the beginning of the year we will have a class discussion on what digital citizenship looks like and create a list of characteristics to hang in the classroom. A copy would then be sent home to parents either electronically or on paper.
