Digital Citizenship @ EMSB

Digital Citizenship is about maximizing the beneficial outcomes the digital world can hold for children, while minimizing the harmful effects. It promotes safe and appropriate online behaviour and encourages critical thinking about media, information, communication, social interaction, culture and respect. The EMSBDC initiative looks at Digital Citizenship through three main tenets: Be Real, Be safe, Be smart.

From exciting popular ebook titles to animated science and mathematics models and online access to local newspapers and magazines, this resource has something for everyone. Best of all, it is FREE for the EMSB community to use, and most resources can be accessed from home, 24-7.
