iREP online

Digital Citizenship is an emphasis for Homewood City Schools. In fact, this concept is so important that the HCS Librarians have teamed up to create iREP online which stands for I Respect, Educate and Protect myself, others, the community and the world. We have created posters that will hang in classrooms as well as bookmarks that will be given out to Homewood families. Here in Homewood, Digital Citizenship is important and we want it to be important to you too. So be looking and listening for more information on this important subject. We want everyone to iREP online.

Posting the Right Way

Here at HMS, we are emphasizing Digital Citizenship in a big way. Digital Citizenship just means using technology responsibly.  But the word "responsible" may have a different meaning for you as a teenager than it does for me as an adult.  So to illustrate responsible behavior online, watch this great video from Common Sense Media.
Hopefully this video introduces you to the concept of "Digital Citizenship."  We will be talking more about this throughout the schoolyear.
