Are you looking for expert guidance and engaging tools to help students navigate their complex digital world?

Advanced technology in today's digital landscape is here to stay - and that's a good thing...until it's not. Society's online transformation has paved previously unimaginable roadways of knowledge, adventure, and inspiration...as well as dangerous detours, hidden potholes, and hairpin curves.

We wouldn't hand the keys of a 4,000-lb. vehicle to a toddler, elementary-school student, or pre-teen, but we often give them access to devices that can expose them to life-threatening perils like identity theft, pornography, predators, and bullying. What can we do to help our children "drive" carefully and follow the rules of the road, growing into smart digital citizens as they navigate the ever-widening information superhighway?

This timely resource is here to help. In Digital Citizenship, Raychelle Cassada Lohmann, Ph.D., and Angie C. Smith, Ph.D., explore the benefits and drawbacks of technology, bringing both breadth and depth to a range of vital topics, including:

  • How to create and maintain the right kind of digital footprint
  • The permanence of online decisions that can haunt children well into adulthood
  • Cybercrime and the importance of privacy and protection
  • Technology's myriad effects on emotional and mental health
  • Sound tips for managing and monitoring device access and use
  • The future of technology and education
  • ...and more!

Brimming with the latest facts and statistics, interactive learning activities, and real-life applications, this book will equip you to guide your students in understanding what it means to thrive as a digital citizen: one who is kind, responsible, and - most important - leaves a footprint that is worthy of following.
