Classroom Educators

"Samaritans on the Digital Road" - a resource for the Ottawa Catholic School Board community to help develop Digital Citizenship skills.

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 while completing five lessons created specifically to address the challenges found at each grade.


This aspect of the site will assist all Classroom educators in supporting Digital Citizenship in all our classrooms across the OCSB. It will touch on material that will be more relevant specifically to those supporting students in our day-to-day classes.
