Digital Citizenship: Part of the Online Team
Join BGL and our puppet friends to learn about what it means to be a responsible digital citizen! Learners help Sunny, a friend from “planet Digitopolis,” develop strategies for becoming part of her online class community. This program explores team dynamics like active listening, asking thoughtful questions, and taking ownership of being part of the team.
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.
