Due to the increasingly prevalent presence of the technological age, and specifically social media, in my middle years classroom, I have decided to focus on digital citizenship and awareness for my major project. I would like to create an inquiry based unit that really encourages the participation and engagement of my students. As indicated in the The Secret Social Media Lives of Teenagers article, “[A favorable] option is to help young social media users realize that their online and real-life experiences are more intertwined than they may think”. Parents, or in my case teachers, need to shift focus from censorship to instead encouraging students to develop their own standards around appropriate online behaviour. I would like to design lessons that illustrate real-world, relate-able situations, and encourage the students to generate the solutions through collaborative research and discourse, so that they will be better-able to incorporate their learning into their own digital citizenship practices.
