Digital Citizenship

March 5 is Texas Digital Citizenship Day. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students, educators and all technology users for a society full of technology.

Now more than ever it's critical we provide students with the skills they need to succeed. Often technology is misused or abused due to a lack of understanding. Digital Citizenship's aim is to inform and educate students, teachers and staff on the approritate use of technology.
