5. Digital Citizenship

ISTE coaching standard 5 requires that technology coaches promote digital citizenship.  To do this, coaches must must model and enforce safe, healthy, legal, and ethic use of technology.  Also, coaches must work to achieve equitable access to technology and they must model and endorse diversity and global awareness through the use of digital communication.

To represent my achievement of this standard I reflect on my work to address equitable access by surveying students and creating a tool for students to use their school-issued devices offline.  I also reflect on my experiences implementing Common Sense Media’s digital citizenship curriculum and I share some commentary on my work to “break down the walls” of the traditional classroom through local and global collaborative projects.
