As educators, part of our role is to assist students in becoming responsible and contributing citizens in society. With society using technology as a pervasive tool, in Wolf Creek we believe our role includes teaching students how to be responsible in handling their interaction with technological tools. Digital Citizenship is a process which helps our students learn how to use technology appropriately. Teaching students about Digital Citizenship involves preparing students for a society full of technology. It is an expectation of each of our Wolf Creek schools that they develop a Digital Citizenship plan and embed these understandings, skills, and behaviours into their school's culture as best befits their students and staff.
Each student at St. Dominic Catholic High School is required to complete the Digital Citizenship course in order to access our internet and use their devices within classrooms. The course is housed on our Moodle server and students can gain access through the administration team. Each year students will also be expected to do a short refresher course as a small reminder to the importance of Digital Citizenship.
If you have any questions about our course please contact the office for further details. The following information is a more detailed description of what students learn during the course.
As the world changes rapidly in the technological sector, so to do the demands that school, community, and businesses place upon today's learner. In completing this course, we hope you will better understand the ever-increasing impact that belonging to a digital world signifies, as well as learn some skills to better place yourself as a 21-century learner.
