About This Site

Our “Digital Citizenship Conversations” website highlights short videos, questions, and resources about “the intersecting goals of digital citizenship” to spark conversations among students, teachers, and parents. This website and these resources reflect the work and activities of faculty and staff at Casady School in Oklahoma City (@casadyschoolokc).

Digital Citizenship includes “Internet Safety” but is also inclusive of a variety of other topics and skills, highlighted by the graphic below. The overlapping goals of digital citizenship education include but are not limited to:

  1. Digital Footprint
  2. Digital Literacy
  3. Information Literacy
  4. Copyright, Intellectual Property Respect, Attribution
  5. Health and Wellness
  6. Empowering Student Voice, Agency, Advocacy
  7. Safety, Security and Privacy
  8. Character Education and Ethics
  9. Parenting
