Online Learning and Digital Citizenship

Course Description

In this one-semester course, students develop essential study skills for academic success, such as staying organized, managing time, taking notes, applying reading strategies, writing strong papers, and researching and properly citing information. Explicit modeling and ample practice
are provided for each study skill to support student mastery. Instruction on how to be a
responsible online learner is threaded throughout the course, and these skills are directly
addressed in lessons on cyberbullying, staying safe online, and becoming a digital leader. A
basic understanding of software and hardware and how to troubleshoot common technology
issues are also taught. By the end of the course, students will have the tools they need to be academically successful in both traditional and digital learning environments.
