Digital Citizenship

NDES Digital Citizenship Vision

North Decatur Elementary School understands the privileges and responsibilities of being a 1:1 school. Among these is the responsibility to be good digital citizens. We will practice good digital citizenship by being safe, responsible, and respectful users of technology. Staff will increase their own digital citizenship skills and model these through instruction and interaction with students. Students will use their devices to learn, create, and connect in a manner that protects private information, maintains a positive self-image, treats others with respect, and gives credit to other creators.
