Relationships & Communications – February

| Comments Off on Relationships & Communications – February

Relationships are built on our understandings of values and beliefs (valuesbeliefsfamily, community, cultural community, school). These values impact our behaviours and actions.

During the month of February, our Digital Citizenship focus is on Relationships and Communication. This beginning lesson explores the idea of friendship as part of relationships and offers opportunities to extend into other units of study. Click here to download the lesson in pdf.  You will also find other resources at Common Sense Media (link on sidebar), Media Smarts.

We’re spreading the news through social media. If you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #sd41digicit to share your story. If you or your class is blogging, use it to tell your journey. Your school website is another place to share. Your voices are important.
