What is Digital Citizenship and how to teach it
The aim of this course is to provide teachers with the knowledge, resources and confidence to teach digital citizenship and to empower their students to be safe, ethical and responsible online. Developed with Webwise and drawing on relevant online safety resources and activities from Webwise, participants will explore what it means to be a good digital citizen and identify opportunities for the teaching and learning of one or more of the 10 domains of digital citizenship in their specific subjects. Topics explored include online wellbeing, news and information literacy, privacy, communication, ethics, empathy and more. The course contains new good practice videos filmed in three post primary schools and makes specific links to SPHE, CSPE and the Digital Media Literacy short course.
Teaching Internet Safety in the SPHE Classroom
This course aims to provide you with the skills and confidence to raise awareness and prevent potentially harmful online behaviour by your students through your implementation of the SPHE curriculum at Junior Cycle, TY and Senior Cycle levels. You will use and adapt free Webwise resources that engage pupils on topics that are relevant to their lives and important to their wellbeing. (The Webwise resources deal with topics such as sharing inappropriate images, online harassment and developing more positive relationships with each other.)
