Every October, Engage explores the theme of Digital Citizenship. Every year, there is something new in the mix, whether it's an emerging technology (like the Internet of Things, or Maker tools), a hot new app, or a new cyber-security threat. Keeping kids engaged in high quality, cutting edge learning experiences continues to present new challenges for schools and districts, ranging from resources and infrastructure to safety and security.


October features two key events related to these topics and questions:


This month, consider these key questions:

  • How has digital citizenship changes in the last five years? What about in the last year alone?
  • How do you balance protecting students in online environments with allowing them to fully experience everything our global, connected world has to offer?
  • What are you going to do for Connected Educator Month?
