According to Media Smarts:
“Young Canadians need to be able to make good choices about privacy, ethics, safety and verifying information when they’re using digital media, and they need to be prepared to be active and engaged digital citizens. Based on our research on digital literacy education in Canada, USE, UNDERSTAND & CREATE provides a road map for teaching these skills in Canadian schools. The framework draws on six key aspects of digital literacy… and provides teachers with supporting lessons and interactive resources that are linked to curriculum outcomes for every province and territory. The home and school connection is supported by parent tip sheets that are linked to from each resource.”
The six key aspects of digital literacy that are contained in this framework are: 1. finding and verifying, 2. ethics and empathy, 3. privacy and security, 4. digital health, 5. consumer awareness, and 6. community engagement. This useful took is also available in French.
While there are many digital citizenship tools available, including digitalcitizenshipquebec.ca, it is always a good idea to have a variety of tools at your disposal, so that you can choose the most appropriate for your class or situation.
