5 Tips for Teaching Digital Skills and Citizenship

Teaching with technology can be extremely motivating and empowering for both teachers and students.  But, as Spiderman’s Uncle Ben said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” As a teacher, it’s important that you not only develop your students’ technical skills like how to create a presentation, video, or blog, but also make sure they know how to be good digital citizens, be safe, and be critical thinkers online.
