Digital Convergence

   

Digital Citizenship

Our students live in a hyper-connected world, spending large amounts of time communicating with family and friends through social media and doing schoolwork/homework in an online environment. Whether at home or school, our students need to know how to be safe, how to use technology appropriately and how to act responsibly when using the Internet or social media. They need to be digital citizens. We need to ensure that our students are able to navigate the digital world in a safe and ethical manner.
