Students give presentation

Red Mill students give a presentation about digital citizenship.

As technology continues to evolve and enter kids’ lives both in school and at home, digital citizenship and safety are important topics to discuss. Red Mill students learned more about this on Thursday at a school-wide assembly that featured skits performed by classmates and teachers, as well as an informational video.

Classroom lessons are being taught using modules on the website www.digitalpassport.org, including:

  • Not sharing private information online
  • How to handle cyber-bullying
  • The dangers of multi-tasking and using devices when you should be focusing on other tasks
  • How to effectively search for information online with specific keywords and how to narrow down search results
  • How to use information found online while giving credit to the authors and sources
  • How to create a strong and secure password

School Social Worker Maria Fontaine, who has organized the school-wide initiative, said the mission is to “educate our students to be respectful, responsible, and safe digital citizens.”

Students also gave a presentation to the Board of Education on Wednesday evening with Mrs. Fontaine, Mrs. Duncan and Mrs. Mahar.
