Online Community, Culture, and Citizenship Digital Literacy Teacher Pass

Activist or slacktivist?

Students wouldn't throw garbage on the floor of the real-world classroom (we hope), and unless you're teaching a group that idolizes Banksy, they probably won't smear graffiti on the walls, either. We're here to help you transfer those manners to the Interwebs.

In this guide you will find

  • a lesson exploring trolls and flamewars. Makes sure to wear protective gear.
  • an activity that will allow yours students to feed people with just a few clicks.
  • outside resources on Twitter free speech (free tweech?) and online "slacktivism."

Our teaching guide prepares you turn students from slacktivists into responsible online netizens.
