This School Year Let's Teach Kids to THINK: A Lesson in Digital Citizenship

The start of a new school year is a great time to remind students (and ourselves) about the importance of digital responsibility and digital citizenship. I especially like the acronym THINK. Before you text, tweet or post, ask yourself, is it...

  • True? 
  • Helpful? 
  • Inspiring? 
  • Necessary? 
  • Kind? 

Let's all work to be better digital citizens this school year – and all years to come!

Thanks, ladies! As we all know, we live in an increasingly digital age. So let's give our kids the tools they need to be safe and kind as they navigate the digital world (and we can remind ourselves what's important along the way, too). :)
