Washington's New Digital Citizenship Law Sets Precedent

(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that was passed by Washington state lawmakers earlier this year aims to make people better "digital citizens."  The bill's sponsor, Senator Marko Liias  of Edmonds, says the measure focuses on teaching kids what constitutes appropriate and responsible use of technology.  The legislation, which is considered to be among the first of its kind in the U.S., was spearheaded by retired teacher and media literacy educator Claire Beach, who says the new law allows conversations appropriate to age and appropriate for grade to begin in the classroom.  Beach tells KING-5 that kids need to know what and what not to post on social media as well as how to protect themselves online.
