Jason Ohler challenges all readers to redefine our roles as citizens in today's globally connected infosphere. In exploring various aspects of digital citizenship, the book uses an "ideal school board" device to address fears, opportunities and the critical issues of character education.

These issues include:

  • cyberbullying, "sexting" and other safety concerns;

  • students' ability to creatively access and critically assess information;

  • respect and ethics regarding copyrighted information;

  • communicating appropriately in an expanded and public realm.

Rich with examples, professional development and classroom exercises, resources and policy perspectives, this book will resonate with educators, parents and anyone interested in the merging of education with technology and its impact on children.
