  1. Review the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Students. What insights did you gain about the expectations for students with regard to technology? Which of these standards are you comfortable integrating into your teaching and in which standard areas might need additional a support?
  2. Read the article on Digital literacy from CommonSense.org. Select an age group you plan to teach: little kids, big kids, tweens, and teens. Click through and read article under that age group following the suggested links.  Summarize one of digital literacy issues or questions posed and share your ideas about promoting digital literacy in your own classroom.
  3. Examine the key topics in the free Common Sense Media K-12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum.  Click on the Scope and Sequence and select the grade band you will be teaching (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12). You can filter by unit and topic.  Click on one lesson related to digital citizenship, read the description, watch the video, and download the pdf and any additional resources for the lesson.  If no video is included, find another lesson.  Share the topic and grade level for the lesson selected as well as the ISTE standard(s) addressed and summarize the learning activities in the lesson. How might you use this lesson in your classroom?
