I really like this lesson plan from Digital Citizenship Adventures .( There is also an excellent lesson plan from Common Sense Education that I have attached. 

The overall goal for this adventure is to help students understand how you project yourself to world on the Internet. Specifically, students will learn:

  • learn more about the many ways you leave a trail of your presence on the web
  • understand how your presence is often permanent and beyond your ability to change or delete
  • and, on the positive side, how these facts provide you an opportunity to create a positive, on-going public presence about yourself as a digital citizen

Hi Lisa,

First of all, thanks for participating in this collaboration between the Teachers Guild and ISTE. We really appreciate your contributions!

We’re in the last week of the build phase of the challenge on digital citizenship so it’s time to fine tune your idea before final voting begins next week.

Here are some things to consider as you continue to build on your idea:
- is your idea clear and will it inspire action from other teachers?
- would it be easy for a teacher to incorporate your idea about digital citizenship in their classroom?
- does your idea include some component of research and are there shareable resources?
- is your idea student-centered and does it promote agency?
