The recommendations for a potential new Digital Citizenship/Literacy standard will include rationale for preparing students to be responsible, ethical, protected, secure and kind online citizens. Discussion topics such as information literacy (digital and print), media literacy, as well as valid research sources, personal safety and protection online (including cyberbullying), and other related topics.
A Digital Citizenship Collaborative Work Group (DCCWG) was created in August 2017 and will be inviting various stakeholders to meetings throughout 2017-2018 to ensure broad input into the work of recommendations for a new standard, including definition of terms and scope of content such as
- Internet Safety and privacy
- Evaluating sources of fact and "fake" news
- Understanding academic databases appropriate for research
- Online Relationships and Sexting
- Cyberbullying and Digital Drama (Online Cruelty)
- Digital Footprint and Future Reputation
- Self Image and Identity
- Information Literacy regarding digital and print text
- Copyright laws and intellectual property
