Key Topics

Social Emotional Learning

Social emotional learning and digital citizenship go hand in hand.  This year the San Ramon Unified School District will focus on the digital citizenship components that directly coincide with social emotional wellbeing. Click on the topics below to connect with lessons.

Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying or online bullying is bullying through digital communication. The California Department of Education defines it as being “willful and involves recurring or repeated harm inflicted through electronic text.”

Examples of cyberbullying include sending texts or posting tweets or Facebook posts that are hurtful to another person. This can include threats, hate-motivated speech or insults. Sending repeated unwanted emails to someone can be a form of cyberbullying. In some cases, cyberbullies may assume an identity of a victim for the purpose of embarrassing that person.

 

Remember when a phone was just a phone? Phones are now for listening to music, sending texts, filming videos, snapping and sharing photos, and accessing the Internet. Kids are using computers and tablets to socialize, stream video, and create their own music for sharing. They are able to connect and share 24/7 from just about any location.

 

At San Ramon Valley Unified School District, we want our students to make good decisions so they can take advantage of the powerful technology tools that fill their lives at both home and school. But in order to make good choices, they need to understand how the digital world works. The stakes are higher because our kids' technological abilities can be greater than their maturity and judgement.

This is why SRVUSD has partnered with Common Sense Media to provide resources, tips, videos, and other materials to help parents and our SRVUSD educators keep our students safe in the digital world. Please spend a few moments reviewing these resources and most importantly, model positive digital behavior with your children or students as much as possible.

In addition, here are a few quick resources that parents can use at home:

  • Keep the computer in a high-traffic area of your home.

  • Establish limits for which online sites children may visit and for how long.

  • Create a family media agreement.

  • Remember that Internet technology is mobile so be sure to monitor cell phones, gaming devices, and laptops.

  • Surf the Internet with your children and let them show you what they like to do online.

  • Know who is connecting with your children online and set rules for social networking, instant messaging, e-mailing, online gaming, and using webcams.

  • Continually dialog with your children about online safety.
