Digital Citizenship FAQs & Teacher Enrollment Instructions 2020-2021

Northwest ISD will develop citizens who know how to harness the learning potential of digital media in a 24/7 connected world, safely, effectively, ethically, and respectfully. By developing and practicing these skills, students will become leaders in this digital society and be Future-Ready.

As part of this curriculum, students are invited to take the #1toWorldPromise. By taking the promise, students are affirming their commitment to the values and actions in this course.

Family Matters! By knowing where to find resources and by facilitating critical conversations with your family, you can support Northwest ISD's vision of helping students remain safe and ethical while connected. In the Family Connections Hub you will find helpful tools and resources, like Common Sense Media.

Northwest ISD is a Common Sense Certified school district for multiple years running due to our lessons on Digital Citizenship and responsible use of technology in our classrooms. All NISD students engage in Digital Citizenship lessons based on Common Sense resources as well as local stakeholder resources and input, covering topics such as internet safety, cyberbullying, privacy, security, copyright, creative use, social media, personal digital footprint, and more.
