A team of SITE leaders was awarded a highly competitive “Digital Citizenship Award” from Facebook to explore the role of digital citizenship in teacher education. The focus of the SITE “Preparing Teachers to Teach Digital Citizenship” project is the development of a college based course, available at no charge as an open education resource, through the AACE digital library. These materials will also be made available as stand-along modules that can be used in PD settings, such as in-service teacher training. A research perspective on digital citizenship, along with international perspectives, will be presented.
