Digital Citizenship Flashcards

Project Administrator, Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI)

A new school year is upon us. 

But back-to-school this year will mean more than new clothes, new friends, and new lesson plans. It will also mean new technologies: websites, games, online homework, social media, you name it. 

I know what you’re thinking – panic! 

Don’t panic. 

Instead, get your and your child’s online know-how up to speed ASAP. 

To help you both make the grade this year, we created downloadable flashcards that cover the basics of digital citizenship. From safety and privacy to literacy and online responsibility, these cards are meant to catch you up on the principles of digital citizenship and help you start a family discussion about technology. 

The beauty of the cards is that you can reference just one, or download, print and put together an entire deck to work through. 

Then, you can use the conversation prompts to talk about the importance of good digital citizenship together. 

This year, start off a click above the rest. Download the flashcards and make sure you both get an A+ in digital citizenship.
