Digital Citizenship: Footprints are Forever
Sharing things online can be dangerous. Our friend from “Digitopolis”, Dude, makes a mistake by posting an embarrassing picture of his friend as a joke. Learners join BGL to help Dude solve this problem and make safer decisions online!
This fun, interactive series explores digital citizenship with a crew of puppet friends. Learners in grades pre-K-4 will get loads of practical tips for digital citizenship as they guide their new puppet friends to solve real-world problems in technology. Developmentally appropriate activities prepare learners with future-ready skills. This unique online learning experience is based on the SEL zones of regulation model from Leah Kuypers, MA.Ed.
