Digital Citizenship

Our children use technology like we used pens and pencils.  They need specialized skills to help them be effective technology consumers and to be safe on the internet.  The tech integraters and librarians in RSU13 use the curriculum provided by Common Sense Media to help educate students about digital citizenship.  We encourage you to take a look at their website and learn how best to guide your children.  For more information click on the link above or go to the Digital Citizenship page on the right.  Please contact your child's school if you any concerns, questions, or suggestions. -Mrs. Tibbett's
