Check out the full Digital Citizenship and Safety course - including lessons on savvy searching, avoiding phishing and scams, and online reputation management.

2. Tip: Use Classroom to share with large groups

Curious about sharing digital citizenship lessons and other information to large groups? Learn from Sarah Jolley (@sarahaj47), a Digital Coach and Social Studies teacher from Elko, Nevada:
“Our school has used Google Classroom as a vehicle to share important information across large groups of students. By creating a Classroom class for an entire grade (or even the entire school), we’re able to easily share student surveys, digital citizenship lessons, school announcements, videos, and other resources at scale.”
