Digital Citizenship is defined as the set of norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use. This is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately.
At Cathedral Catholic, we envision our community being empowered with digital tools to guide students to be resourceful, creative, and responsible digital citizens.
Cathedral Catholic High School’s technology program empowers:
- Our teachers to educate with the best tools;
- Our students to succeed in the digital world;
- Our families to partner with CCHS to raise responsible digital citizens.
In support of our goal to partner with families, we would like to share the following resources for parents.
Digital Safety from Discovery Education and Intel
Discovery Education has partnered with Intel to create three quick and easy-to-understand presentations about cyber-safety, cyber-security, and cyber-ethics. You can access the Parent Module on the right hand side of each module.

Understanding Parental Restrictions
Parents have the ability to set limitations on the what their child is able to access and monitor their online behavior. Typically, parental controls include content filters for age-appropriate content, usage controls for time-limits or forbidding certain types of usage, computer usage management tools for certain software, and monitoring methods to track location and recent activity. Common Sense Media has some great information on this.
