In the USA, this week is Digital Citizenship Week. Led by Common Sense Education, the week aims to support teachers in promoting Digital Citizenship in the classroom – helping students think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly online. Topics for this year’s event include Evaluating Sources/Fake News, Social Media, Smart Device Use, and Positive Online Presence.
IT Asset Management and Internet Safety solution, NetSupport DNA, aids teachers in helping students learn and understand how to be great digital citizens, while protecting them online.
Features such as Internet Metering allow teachers to restrict/allow access to websites – providing a safe environment in which students can learn about the internet whilst only accessing sites approved by their teacher. In addition, Report a Concern, a feature within NetSupport DNA’s Internet Safety module, supports students by allowing them to report any issues they might have, such as cyberbullying, to a trusted staff member of their choice.
