Know The Risks, Think Critically & Act Appropriately

Download: Activity Kit

Throughout May, the California Technology Agency is joining schools and community partners statewide to encourage students and families to think critically, behave safely and participate responsibly and ethically online. California Digital Citizenship Month is an opportunity to teach and dialogue on topics impacting California youth such as cyber bullying, digital foot prints, on-line privacy, security and copyrights. Teaching students how to be good digital citizens means helping them understand their rights and responsibilities, recognize the benefits and risks, as well as realize the personal and ethical implications of their actions – on AND offline. By teaching digital citizenship, California is preparing its students to be safe and secure in a 21st century digital world.

Digital citizenship and cyber security is our shared responsibility. By working together we can combat cyber threats, raise awareness and keep California safe. For more information on how you can raise awareness in your community, visit Common Sense Media at www.commonsensemedia.org/California.
