About the Courses

There are four courses in the Digital Citizenship online suite: an overview and guide to reporting tools for administrators, and grade-specific Digital Citizenship courses for elementary, middle and high school educators, complete with lesson plans and resources.

The four courses in the online suite are:

  • Meeting CIPA Mandates for E-rate Compliance (administrator course) 60 min
  • Digital Citizenship, CIPA, and E-rate for Elementary School Teachers (grades K-5) 80-90 min
  • Digital Citizenship, CIPA and E-rate for Middle School Teachers (grades 6-8) 80-90 min
  • Digital Citizenship, CIPA and E-rate for High School Teachers (grades 9-12) 80-90 min

The 3 courses for teachers:

    • Offer professional development so that they understand the importance of teaching digital literacy and citizenship in their classrooms
    • Provide a comprehensive research-based, standards-aligned digital citizenship curriculum that teachers can use to educate students
    • Showcase lessons in action for teachers to see grade-specific examples of digital literacy and best practices from around the country 

Compliance Reporting

The KDS reporting tool provides the CIPA compliance documentation you will need to demonstrate that teachers have provided lessons aligned with CIPA mandated topics at each grade level. You get admin level access that allows you to:

      • Run reports to get data per school or teacher 
      • See the % progress and/or % completion of each school or teacher
      • Identify individuals who have completed vs those who haven't
      • Easily export reports to Excel
