A coalition of likeminded organizations plans to advocate for legislation that expands access to digital citizenship instruction in classrooms nationwide. The coalition has released official model legislation language that it will use to engage policymakers in sponsoring bills in 2017. This model is based on a bill that the state of Washington passed in 2016—the nation’s first comprehensive digital citizenship and media literacy legislation. The bill calls for the office of the superintendent of public instruction to develop and distribute a list of digital citizenship and media literacy best practices and recommendations to school administrators. State advisory committees should include researchers, administrators, educators, and others to review digital citizenship and media literacy curriculum and policy.
