Internet Creator Challenge

PROJECT PLAN ON DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

Students are spending A LOT of time online, right now.  Last week, a couple of middle schoolers we talked to shared that their average phone screen time was nine hours/day! 

As our students spend more time online, we must recommit to equipping them to learn and socialize online safely and responsibly as the people they want to be in the real world. To help your students practice being kind and smart online, TomTod created the Internet Creator Challenge –project plan and interactive slides

Teach Digital Citizenship with TomTod’s Internet Creator Challenge

To help your students practice being kind and smart online, TomTod created the Internet Creator Challenge –project plan and interactive slides. This gamified project for middle schoolers allows students to work at their own pace to learn about digital citizenship and safety. 

This project is aligned with the Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards for students and supports Ohio’s Social and Emotional Learning Standards, Reading and Writing standards for 6th through 8th grade. In addition, this project plan can be used for cross-curricular exploration by having students use the “Creator Challenge” assessment to research and create content around standards for other subjects such as social studies or science. 

Let’s commit to making our students good Digital Citizens! We’d love to hear how this project plan is useful for your students! Shoot us a note at dailyadventures@tomtodideas.org!
