With most of our elementary school students using iPads on a daily basis, it’s imperative we also teach them about digital citizenship and safety, providing them with the dos and don’ts of online behavior.
On Tuesday afternoon, our LHRIC Instructional Technology consultant, Jamie Haug, met with students at Montebello Elementary School during their art class to discuss digital citizenship and introduce them to a New York State Office of Information Technology Services contest. The contest empowers students across the state to design a poster messaging out their thoughts on cyber safety.
These students were up to the challenge and began work on their posters. “Keep your passwords to yourself,” “Ignore people you don’t know,” and “protect your private information,” were just some of the slogans they created.
This contest is open to anyone in NY State, grades 1-12. For more information, visit: https://its.ny.gov/…/2019-nys-kids-safe-online-poster-conte…
