Digital Citizenship and cyber safety

Welcome to the Digital Citizenship and cyber safety module. This is the first of three modules in the digital citizenship series for 2010. This module will initially happen over a three week period with opportunities for interaction through the completion of tasks and invitations to attend real time virtual meetings with others involved in leading clusters in the ICT PD project. After the three weeks, this wiki will remain online as an ongoing resource and opportunity.

10th May - 28th May
A live event for all cluster personnel from 3.15pm - 4.00pm on 20th May (details to be confirmed).

Who would benefit from completing this module:
Anyone in education, who creates or accesses material in an online environment and who is interested in mentoring young people to be ethical, savvy digital citizens - e.g. Principals, teachers, cluster facilitators, lead teachers, cluster project directors.

Navigating through the module:
The links to the left of the wiki will take you through the content and activities contained within this module. It is spread out over three weeks, so that you can work through these at your own pace. Where there are virtual meetings organised, these will be at set times. You need to follow the instructions on the appropriate wiki page to join these sessions. Please join the 'Getting to know you' page to let us all know a little bit about yourself and your role.

Use of web 2.0 media:
The tasks contained within this module will at times make use of web media to help encourage interaction and participation. Being able to use these may involve setting up a user name or password. If this is an area of new learning for you, you may choose to do this module with a friend or colleague who can support your new learning. If you need additional support, then please contact Tessa Gray 021337529 or
Suzie Vesper.

Future modules 2010:
