@Hamlin we believe all of our faculty and staff are Digital Citizenship educators. We have developed an effective partnership with Common Sense Media as well as with our parents to provide intentional and co-ordinated instruction on how Hamlin girls can meet the challenges of their increasingly digital times.
Our opening communication message to parents included the following from our K-8 Health & Wellness Co-ordinator – Karen Brown. We look at this as a digital extension of our Toolbox curriculum.
Digital Citizenship Monthly Theme: “Healthy Boundaries with Technology”
This year the Middle School will have a monthly Digital Citizenship theme for our community members to think about the connections between the Hamlin Creed and our digital lives. September’s theme is “Healthy Boundaries with Technology.”
We hope you will be able to continue these conversations at home with the help of our monthly discussion questions.
- What does it mean to have healthy boundaries with technology?
- How does this relate to use of technology for schoolwork and/or personal use?
- What boundaries with technology do you already have in place in your family?
