Last week, I showed TYLA's rusafe video in order to show acceptable use policies. In doing so, I was reminded of the fact that we have always been citizens of a larger information network. However, a few things have changed since the propaganda of the Civil War and the biases spread during the Crusades.

  1. More people now than ever have access to the information
  2. There is still a large percentage of "uneducated" citizens
  3. Information spreads much quicker
  4. Anyone can spread information to ANYONE
So, how do we combat these new factors and ensure students are digitally literate and good citizens in a digital economy? Well, edutopia is a great place to start with their listing of digital citizenship resources.
