Digital Citizenship For Families with Teens (Online Course):
This four module online course has been developed by FCPS for parents/guardians and their teen in grades 7 and up. Parents of younger children may find portions of this course appropriate and useful as well.
After viewing the Introduction, parents should start with Module 1: Parents Only and then use Modules 2 - 4 with their teen(s). Modules 2 - 4 are designed to support family conversations about the topics related to digital citizenship. Families are encouraged to work through the course at their own pace and complete any module or activity of interest. While these modules won’t teach you everything you need to know, they provide a solid foundation upon which your family can build.
