Digital Citizenship: Teachers

Preparing FCPS Teachers

FCPS has been partnering with i-SAFE (www.isafe.org) since 2008 to provide internet safety teacher training and curriculum materials to all K-12 schools.  All instructional personnel have been required to complete the i-SAFE Internet Safety Professional Development Training program.  

Starting in 2016, we will discontinue the use of iSafe.  Newly updated Digital Citizenship training will be available for school staff.  The new training includes the topics of:

  • Privacy and Security
  • Relationships and Communication
  • Cyberbullying
  • Self-Image and Identity
  • Digital Footprint
  • Social Networking
  • Internet Safety
  • Creative Credit and Copyright
  • Information Literacy
  • Creating a Culture for Online Learning

Teachers also have access to Common Sense Media curriculum as well as resources from other reputable organizations.
