Middle School Students Attend Digital Citizenship Conference

Several Educational Service Units hosted Digital Citizenship Day for teachers and students to learn more about what digital citizenship is all about.

 

Mrs. Hollatz, Mrs. Peterson, Tanyn Larson, Baylee Settje, Carter Timm, and Nevaeh Zulkoski all attended the conference at ESU2 in Fremont. There were seven sites attending that were linked together through Distance Learning.

 

They first listened to Karen Haase, an attorney from KSB Law Firm. She discussed the positive effects of social media while also touching on how kids get in trouble with technology.

 

7th grader, Baylee Settje said, “I thought the Digital Citizenship Conference was a good opportunity to learn what we didn’t know before we went there. We learned that kids get in trouble with technology by ignoring internet safety and cyber bullying.

 

Karen Haase also talked about how social media makes us, and they were able to learn about several different app sites including Tik Tok.

 

The students that were taken down to the conference had time to work on a presentation to take back to school with the emphasis on #BeTheOne. They will present it to the Leigh Board of Education and the students.

 

“I believe technology can be wonderful, but it can also be very dangerous,” said superintendent, Stephanie Petersen. “As educators and parents, we need to teach our students how to be safe on the Internet and help students understand what they see or hear on the Internet isn’t always the truth.”
