Bust out those laptops, iPhones, Androids…Oh, wait, you’ve already got your device out.
Well then, come celebrate Colorado’s first Digital Citizenship Day with 130 fourth- and fifth-graders at 10:30 a.m. Monday, April 22, at University Park Elementary School, 2300 S. St. Paul St. (After all, these kids are probably more savvy computer users than you are.)
Common Sense Media and co-sponsors Denver Public Schools and DaVita are hosting the celebration.
Gov. John Hickenlooper will speak about the statewide effort to educate Colorado’s K-12 students about thinking critically, behaving safely, and participating responsibly in today’s online world.
Denver Superintendent Tom Boasberg will outline how DPS is teaching students and parents about digital literacy and citizenship, and local business leader Kent Thiry will elaborate on his commitment to the effort.
