Digital Citizenship Education

Digital Technologies

DC provides infused learning opportunities related to online safety and security when using digital technologies. Key resources that are used to highlight elements of digital citizenship include the use of ‘Hector’s World’ (www.hectorsworld.com) with students Years 3-6, which is an online learning environment that aims to educate through the use of child-orientated interests and tools. At MYP level, developing positive digital citizenship involves ‘just in time’ education; for example, a project requiring music for a presentation can also involve a session investigating issues surrounding pirating music, video, etc.

The College is committed to strengthening the partnership between home and school by offering presentations and workshops related to online safety and security. The aim is to form positive digital citizenship expectations that are consistent between home and school, with parents and the school keeping each other informed about current positive and negative online trends to be aware of.
