Now that the school year is in full swing, remember to check out the BrainPOP Spotlight on Digital Citizenship.  More than ever, classrooms are going digital, and it’s our job as teachers to help students understand appropriate online behavior and the importance of interacting respectfully.

From Copyright and Plagiarism to Cyberbullying and Internet Search, the Digital Citizen Spotlight provides a collection of useful content to help students understand their role as digital citizens.  A thorough exploration of the Spotlight page can provide a roadmap for navigating the wild, wild world of the web.  Your students will learn a lot, and you will too!

Once you’ve explored the Spotlight page and clicked through to its specific topics,  be sure to visit each “Lesson Plans and Teaching Ideas” page.  These pages feature topic-specific lesson plans, graphic organizers, movies, and quizzes that you can customize and remix to use with your own students.

After exploring the Digital Citizenship Spotlight, topics, and teaching resources,  put your refreshed digital etiquette skills to use and share your ideas in our community forum.  It’s a great place to meet fellow members of the BrainPOP Educators community and make your voice heard!
