Information for parents about Samaritans on the Digital Road

"Samaritans on the Digital Road" is a resource for the Ottawa Catholic School Board community (staff, parents and students) to help develop digital citizenship skills and to develop an understanding of digital integrity.

This resource is built upon the shoulders of Jesus' parable about The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). Each grade (K-12) will explore the meaning of one verse as it relates to being an online citizen by completing five lessons created specifically to address challenges found at each age. This curriculum is designed to develop students’ understanding that their citizenship and efforts to live the gospel values extends to their presence in the digital world.

All of the lessons from Samaritans on the Digital Road are available on this website under the drop down menu titled "student curriculum." Just click on your child's grade level to see how they will be learning about being a responsible digital citizen.

As well, the Program Map will give you an overview of the learning goals and topics covered in each lesson.
