Digital Citizenship Framework
In SST, Digital Citizenship is Applied Cyber Wellness. To be actively applied and become competent digital citizens, we are seeking to be authentic and community-focused.
Digital Citizenship promotes Cyber Wellness
Good digital citizens maintain awareness of the dangerous aspects of using social technology and advocate good behaviours to protect themselves and others online.
Digital Citizenship balances personal empowerment and community well-being
Good digital citizens know that the online environment offers many ways to access information, create content, work collaboratively, and consume knowledge. Our ability to influence others in our community has increased multifold. Hence, we need to interact with online resources respectfully and ethically.
Digital Citizenship requires ongoing community participation
Good digital citizens are willing to debate and revise our understanding of the impact of digital technology and seek to positively promote thoughtful and empathetic intentions to advance humanity’s interests.
Digital Citizenship Programmes
The Digital Citizenship Committee oversees the various programmes and carries them out with the Digital Citizenship Leadership Board (DCB) and Digital Citizenship Representatives (DCRs) from each class.
DC Parents Engagement
We conduct talks and workshops on Educational Technology and ICT for parents to build a united community on our approach towards developing digital citizens.
S1 Orientation Sharing
We express our expectations during the orientation phase that secondary one students are to be consistent in their good behaviour both online and offline.
DC Week cum Annual Showcase
We share our research and findings with partner schools through outreach efforts and seek dialogue opportunities between students, staff, industrial partners and alumni to enrich our learning.
School Based Projects & DC Outreach (Primary Schools)
Through the interaction with our junior counterparts in the primary schools, we enhance awareness and adoption of good cyberwellness, and cybersecurity practices in communities, study the latest communication model used by youths in the digital world and advocate for positive netiquette.
DC Lessons & Projects
The DC Board takes the lead to equip students with relevant knowledge and skills about digital citizenship. It also provides numerous platforms as opportunities for student leadership in SST to impact the school and beyond.
Workshops and learning journeys are organized to equip members of the DCB with key principles of our Digital Citizenship Framework as well as operational skills to organize and implement the events.
