Stand Up...Be In Control! is an engaging collection of hands-on lessons covering key digital citizenship topics. These lessons
empower students to be smart, safe and effective participants in a digital world.
Living in a digital world provides us with almost limitless opportunities to collaborate, communicate, and interact with diverse communities of people all over the world. But this “open access,” along with the feeling of being somewhat “anonymous” in your actions, can sometimes invite potentially negative interactions.
In this lesson, students will explore maintaining online boundaries and discover what it means to be an “upstander.” Using creative
methods to share the message and inspire others in meaningful and positive ways, students will become ambassadors for positive change!
• Understand the difference between bystanders and upstanders
• Demonstrate an ability to participate respectfully and responsibly in an online community
• Create and contribute to an original collaborative project using digital media to inspire a positive call to action
