Digital Citizenship

“Digital citizenship is the norms of appropriate, responsible technology…Whether it is called digital citizenship, digital wellness or digital ethics the issues are the same; how should we act when we are online, and what should be taught to the next generation.”                 Mike Ribble ~ http://digitalcitizenship.net/

At TOCS, there is an intentional focus on teaching students about their digital footprint, the advantages and disadvantages of the online world and how to be careful with the resources found online today.  As teachers and parents, we have the same goal - helping young people learn how to live for Christ in a digital age. We can weave biblical truth into the everyday conversations with them. We find encouragement and instruction in Deuteronomy 6. 

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.  And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.  You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.  You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”    Deuteronomy 6:4-9
