With BYOT Programs emerging at many schools, digital citizenship programs have provided a safety net for school. However, they have just opened our eyes to what our students can do and write on social media and also the role that sports and movies stars have in shaping the expectation of communication skills in a 21st Century environment. Lets look at the wealth of resources that are available in online news articles, use SAMR ladders to reflect on how we can improve Digital Citizenship lessons and preface emerging research from the likes of Mal Lee and Martin Levens in how our schools should transform. From research activities that infusing digital citizenship into curriculums, to whole school change issues involving tech, we will propose, discuss and also share our current situations on that continuum.
