About The Webinar

Developing and Embedding Digital Citizenship: Teaching Safe Savvy Social | Primary

This webinar will provide school leaders, teachers and support staff with a detailed insight into the importance of building a foundation of digital citizenship in children, along with a greater understanding of how to implement such teaching in primary settings. 

In a 2022 survey, Ofcom found that 99% of 3- to 17-year-olds in the UK went online during the previous year. As proportions of that size increasingly solidify as standard, it is essential that educators are exploring effective ways to teach children how to be responsible digital citizens. To do this, schools need to be able to identify the skills relating to digital citizenship – and how they interconnect across the curriculum. It’s also highly useful to be able to evidence and demonstrate growth in the various levels of pupils’ digital citizenship. 

This webinar, presented by Dr Mike Ribble, Director of Information Technology for the Manhattan–Ogden schools district in Kansas, discusses the S3 (safe; savvy; social) model of digital citizenship and how it can enable children to experience the online world more safely, ethically and responsibly.

Learning Outcomes

  • Gaining a deeper understanding of the levels of technological knowledge and skills that are needed in the 21st-century classroom.

  • Identifying the various elements which constitute digital citizenship: the evolving norms of appropriate, responsible and empowered technology use.

  • Learning the details of each strand of the 3S model – safe, savvy and social – and how this approach encompasses the core of what it means to be a good digital citizen.

  • Building a clear, organised view of how technology integration can be effectively taught in a primary setting.

  • Empowering educational leaders to share with stakeholder groups (such as parents and community members) how responsible technology use is being taught in your classrooms.
