Colorado Digital Citizenship Day

Today, April 22, has been designated as the first-ever “Colorado Digital Citizenship Day,” as recognized by the State Board of Education. “Colorado Digital Citizenship Day will focus on the important issues facing children and their families in our 24/7 digital world,” according to the State Board’s resolution. This includes children’s internet safety and privacy issues, and how families, schools, and students can work together to keep everyone safe online. For resources on children’s internet safety, see the Colorado School Safety Resource Center’s “Internet Safety & Digital Responsibility” page; the Colorado Attorney General’s Safe Surfing brochure; and Cyber Bullying and Internet Safety from the University of Colorado’s Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence. For more information on Colorado Digital Citizenship Day, see the Colorado Dept. of Education’s press release.
