Empowering Learning

The California Education Technology Blueprint titled: Empowering Learning (PDF) makes 19 recommendations. Recommendation 2 states: Ensure student safety by outlining policies and best practices to prevent cyberbullying and protect student data.

“It is important to teach students about the ethical, legal, and safe use of online information and resources. It is also important to help students learn about how they can protect themselves and their personal information in online environments.”

The goal is to identify resources that can help students learn 21st century skills such as digital citizenship, information literacy, and safe and legal Internet use (for example, those surrounding plagiarism and pirating music and movies).
