Digital Citizenship & Online Awareness
Welcome to the Educational Technology Digital Citizenship & Online Awareness Support Page.
On this page, you will find some of the resources utilized by Brentwood School to teach students about digital citizenship and online awareness. Our students spend a lot of time in digital spaces, whether it be for educational or social purposes. In both spaces, it is important that students understand the impact of their participation on other people and on their own digital footprint.
As we learn about new trends in teaching digital citizenship and social media that may be affecting our students' well being, this page will be updated with articles, videos and other resources. Check back here regularly to grow your understanding of the ever-changing online world in which many of your children explore and live.
Explore how being online affects your sleep.
