Digital Citizenship in Learning Advisories
Our Junior High School Learning Advisory curriculum has recently been streamlined to focus on the following three key areas:
Learning to Learn
Social and Emotional Learning
Digital Citizenship is a key aspect of ‘Learning to Learn’ and ‘Social and Emotional Learning’. At this stage in development our learners are seeking more independence and meaningful interactions with others (which are often in person and in online environments) so it is very timely that we support students in these areas through our Learning Advisory curriculum.
Aho students have been spending time researching and developing their top 5 tips for digital citizenship. The students have produced posters and media which will be placed around our learning spaces to share these tips and learning with others.
The top five posters were selected and developed by the following students:
Back Row - Olivia Connolly, George Coombes, Campbell Mitchell, Armani Carter, Madison Freeman
Front Row - Flynn McCormack, Cole Brewerton, Andrew Chang, Braxton Rope.
Some of the great digital citizenship tips and advice that students shared included:
If you won’t say it to their face, don’t say it online.
Keep all your passwords and personal information private.
Know who you are talking to online.
Don’t post anything you’ll regret later.
Follow site rules and guidelines.
Term 3 has started with some awesome learning opportunities and it has been great to see Aho being so actively engaged with the Learning Advisory curriculum. We are proud of what the students have reflected on, learnt and shared with others.
