leadinginnovation2012 - Curriculum Pacing 

Where to Start?

Sharing the responsibility for Digital Citizenship instruction is essential. Whether you decide to implement the curriculum as a team, via cross curriculums, or confine the instruction to Technology education classes, you must think of what implementation is best for your school/classroom needs. Furthermore, you may decide to teach Digital Citizenship in complete units, breaking up the curriculum, or teaching it twice a week.
