Palms Middle School

Digital Citizenship

Palms helps both parents and students learn the basics of Digital Citizenship, which refers to learning appropriate use of the Internet, social media, and other personal technology.

Students are given Digital Citizenship lessons as part of their preparations to use their school-issued iPads, but there is more that everyone can learn.

We recommend that parents take advantage of the information at the Common Sense Education website and their Family Toolbox, which has activities, handbooks, videos, and other materials to help you and your children stay safe in a digital world.
