Digital Citizenship Picture Books

Posted by Julie Horwat on 4/1/2019

Ms. McNamara has a list of great picture books for teaching digital literacy in the classroom by way of shared picture books that she has shared with you already.  The list included:

Today, I learned about 5 new digital citizenship picture books to share with the kiddos, and here they are:

  • Blackout by John Rocco
    • Will ignite "discussions about balancing screen time and other activities" (School Library Journal
  • Nerdy Birdy Tweets by Aaron Reynolds
    • Reminds students that while technology can connect us with people all around the world, the people in our real lives are also important
  • Goodnight Selfie by Scott Menchin 
    • Helps children learn about the choices they need to make when developing their online persona--how to shape their digital footprint
  • Webster's Manners by Hannah Whaley
    • School Library Journal says that this book is "an excellent choice to kick off conversations about classroom tech expectations"
  • Troll Stinks by Jeanne Willis 
    • Shows the power of words to hurt, even through a screen.
