4.1.2 Digital Safety and Security
Due to the fact that nowadays technology is a big part of our students' lives, I believe that digital safety and security needs to be taught explicitly. As Mike Ribble suggests in Passport to Digital Citizenship, students should have the opportunity to analyze and explore why they should use technologies in a certain way. Using the explicit direct instruction model, I provide guidance to my students about what constitutes safe and responsible Internet use, and how to recognize dangerous and inappropriate situations.
