Our Space: Being a Responsible Citizen of the Digital World

Is an extensive 500 plus pages in a pdf document and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported License. The document is full of curricular materials most of which are low tech, “Our Space is a set of curricular materials designed to encourage high school students to reflect on the ethical dimensions of their participation in new media environments [e.g.Facebook, Wikipedia]. Through role-playing activities and reflective exercises, students are asked to consider the ethical responsibilities of other people, and whether and how they behave ethically themselves online. These issues are raised in relation to five core themes that are highly relevant online: identity, privacy, authorship and ownership, credibility, and participation.”

A valuable resource for administrators and teachers who need a starting point for a digital citizenship plan to implement in their schools.
