FRIT 7739 Digital Citizenship

Collaborative Unit on Digital Citizenship
General Audience
The primary audience consists of high school students ages fourteen through eighteen, in
Introduction to Business and Technology and Physical Science. The primary audience is to be
taught and gain knowledge from a wide variety of digital citizenship topics. The broad range of
topics in the course allows for students to be interested in many of the topics throughout the
course. Also if the students were to transfer to another school system the course work would
have the same look and feel because of standardization throughout the state and nation following
Common Core principles.
Problem Identification
Students never realize the importance of knowing copyright law. They take for granted that
someone is protecting their own works of art. Many students will search the Internet for images,
music and video to use in their projects and presentations. They do not first realize the impact
they are making on the market and how legal action can come down on them. By providing a
course that helps students understand their global impact and understand Copyright law, they
become more aware of their societal impact.
Instructional Goals

Students will be able to know the importance of Copyright Law.

Students will be able to navigate the web to find Fair Use files.
Students will be able to produce copyright free assignments.
Part II: Learner Analysis

The learners in this 9th to 12th grade class are made up of 42% girls and 58% boys, 37%
White/non-Hispanic, 45% Black/non-Hispanic, and 18% Asian. Fifty percent of students are
labeled as economically disadvantaged, and only 10% are students with disabilities. The
demographic information for this learner analysis was obtained by using the Georgia Department
of Education Website. The GDoE (Georgia Department of Education) also provides
demographics of students throughout the entire school. In order to obtain the needed information
for these high school students test scores were accessed through academic transcripts on Infinite
Campus, which is the schools database of all students. Teacher observations and interviews were
also conducted in an attempt the gain information for the learner analysis.

or even given thought to the importance of the principal for their own future. Many also may
have no clue how to properly navigate online content and how to properly cite the use of images
and music. .
Attitudes Toward Content and Academic Motivation
When asked 43% of students agreed that many courses did not teach them much about Copyright
Law, Plagiarism and Ethics. The students recognized the importance of the analysis of data and
knew that they must begin to implement proper Digital Citizenship skills into their daily life.
When asked of their comfort level the data analysis showed that over 70% of students rated
themselves as feeling as though they gained important knowledge from the course. These results
were gathered through the use of a survey, which was administered at the end of the course.

every week. They preferred to work and discuss issues through online boards versus having to
submit one answer to the professor for review. This information was gathered through a student
survey and teacher interview.
