Digital Citizenship Week at Katy ISD
 
Loading Image...
 
It's Digital Citizenship Week in Katy ISD! Being a good digital citizen means making good choices online, standing up for others, and knowing when to take a break from technology to do other activities. Students throughout the District will participate in various activities and lessons this week that will help them be safe, responsible and respectful online.
 
For more information about digital citizenship, read information below.
 
Managing online presence is a daily commitment to ensure safety, productivity and efficiency. Educating their students begins very early and Katy ISD works with families to provide their children with tools to do their work and participate online in a safe manner. Below are resources to help families and teachers train their students on Digital Citizenship skills.
 
How to Keep Your Children Safe Online
 
The online world can be full of distractions, temptations, and danger for unknowing children. This article contains information and practical resources to help parents prepare their children for navigating the internet safely.
 
Digital Citizenship 24/7
 
​During the past couple of years, students and adults as well, have been challenged with new experiences with digital tools that were needed for school, work, and even trying to prevent socia​l isolation. They all depended heavily on technology to stay connected with friends and family and continue our learning online. These opportunities allowed students to become more skilled in evaluating news, media and online resources, and to successfully navigate social media and online communities. ​
 
Students still find themselves immersed in the digital environment and need constant reminders at school and at home about what they can do to be safe and productive online.
 
*​Be kind and respectful online - What is said online is heard and felt by other human beings. Be kind and respectful even if you disagree.
 
*Avoid digital drama - The end of the school year doesn't mean the end of online drama. Following the first rule above will help with this, but be sure to involve adults when necessary to help resolve issues before they escalate.
 
*Be mindful of what you share - Never share personal information such as your address, school, full name, etc. Instagram, Tik​ Tok or any social media platform are easy resources for people to learn more about you or capture information to use for their own benefit. Think before you post anything.
 
*Think critically about what you see and read - Students should continue to view information through a very critical lens and not believe everything they see and hear. Always look for bias, propaganda, marketing and trickery. Never follow or forward anything that you can't verify is true.
