Digital Citizenship Lessons & Activities

Today, people of all ages upload and share content they did not create — breaking copyright laws and crossing ethical boundaries on a daily basis.

We strongly believe that Canadian elementary school teachers have a moral imperative to both learn and teach the legal and ethical ways of using other people’s content from the internet.

As a registered participant in  AKGTCanada

WE ASK YOU TO DO SO.
