"Susan Bearden has written an important, articulate book packed with practical wisdom about helping everyone navigate the opportunities and anxieties of the connected world. While she is focused on helping students, she understands that their education requires the education of all of us: parents, administrators, community members. In clear, poignant terms she spells out what each of us needs to do to become an inspired, responsible digital citizenship so we can create the kinds of communities we want.
"Why do all of us – teachers, parents, school leaders, and the members of the community – need to learn and support our kids learning about Digital Citizenship? Susan Bearden’s book is a wonderful primer on the subject. As Susan writes: “Digital citizenship education is not solely ‘the school’s responsibility’ or ‘the parent’s responsibility,’ but is instead a community responsibility.” All of us together are smarter than any of us alone.
"In order for schools to successfully integrate technology, they must create a culture of digital citizenship. Susan understands that it 'takes a village' with teachers, students, administrators, and parents working together to create that culture. She offers a comprehensive guide with practical advice, strategies, resources, and lessons learned. Considering Susan's school received a Digital Citizenship Certification by Common Sense Education, she knows first-hand what works.
