This series describes how children can get the most out of digital citizenship. These titles do a nice job of addressing the collaborative possibilities of private and social networks for sharing one’s story or working together on school projects.

Booklist - Evaluating Online Resources

Young researchers get to flex their critical-thinking muscles in this Create and Share: Thinking Digitally series (8 titles) guide. A white, disabled girl (she uses a prosthetic leg) and a purple robot serve as friendly cartoon guides to this text about finding credible information online. Four brief chapters outline why it’s important to evaluate online sources; how to go about it; how to spot fake news, bias, or internet hoaxes; and how to verify information with other sources. Each chapter features an activity to help hone the skills discussed therein.
