This is a 2 day workshop Mon 19th & 26th  Feb 4.30-6.30

ICT is rapidly becoming an integral part of teaching learning and assessment, however as students become citizens of the digital community, they must be guided and facilitated in how to behave responsibly online and develop good judgement when interacting in a global digital society.


This course will focus on supporting teachers in teaching students the rights and responsibilities that are prevalent for them as digital citizens. It will concentrate on the following themes:

Digital Citizenship online and in the classroom. (What does it mean to be a good citizen and a citizen in the digital world?)

Being ethical online (Citing sources, Copyright etc)

Identifying safe sources of information for students

Managing myself online (Digital footprint, online identity & social networking)

Staying safe online (Cyberbullying, Sexting, Inappropriate content)
