Awesome, Underutilized Resources for Teaching Justice-Oriented Digital Citizens

Updated: May 27

I came across a GEM of a find today when curating digital citizenship resources for teachers. Why aren’t any of my #digcit pals talking about the resources from Teaching Tolerance? Is it because we have yet to fully equate digital citizenship with anything BUT behavior management?


In my work, I’ve been trying to get educators thinking beyond personal responsibility and behavior management when they talk about digital citizenship. After all, being in community with others is a lot more complicated than just following rules. Maybe some of these great lessons will help!

Here’s a sample of some of the lessons available at Tolerance.org

  1. Social Media for Social Action

  2. Digital Activism Remixed: Hashtags for Voice, Visibility and Visions of Social Justice

  3. Civic Engagement and Communication as Digital Community Members

  4. You Are the Product

  5. How Online Communication Affects Privacy and Security

This is just a taste! Take a look at the lesson resources at Tolerance.Org yourself for even more great lessons for ALL citizens – even the digital ones 🙂
