Many parents and educators want a script for how to talk to their young learners about digital citizenship. And I’ve found that the best script is one that you write yourself.

Here’s HOW.

Start by
answering these questions:

How do you feel about safeguarding privacy online?

How do you put guardrails around your own technology use

How do you build online community?

How does technology serve you?

If there are questions here you can’t answer, do some work until you can.

Once you do, package your answers into a conversation that meets your young learners at their level.

There are no right answers here.

Just your answers.

There are no right answers here. The best thing you can do for your learners is to #BringConsciousness to your own relationship to technology, model that process for them, and then keep an open dialogue.
