This paper describes a proposed project to implement a digital citizenship curriculum into a high school Freshman Transition course to better prepare students enrolled in said course to be true digital citizens. The curriculum component of the project is called the Shift into CTRL Digital Citizenship Curriculum, covering topics such as digital footprints, cyberbullying, copyrights and the user’s responsibilities, and internet security and privacy. This project will also provide professional development for teachers and learning opportunities for parents. The goals of the Shift into CTRL Digital Citizenship Curriculum include building awareness and knowledge about digital presence in students, parents and teachers and developing skills in students to educate others. The outcome of this program is to develop students at North School Senior High School who will be knowledgeable, responsible, and empowered digital citizens.
