Digital citizenship and the campMODA community
MODA classes give children a chance to explore their interests and try out different roles. We work to empower students by giving them choices, both to practice the skills they already have and to learn new ones.
Our class will create a new digital community for your child. It is essential to know how to be a good member of the community. We expect participants to be respectful members of the community and to engage in respectful communication, even (or especially) with those who are very different from themselves. Respecting these differences is the key to digital citizenship.
We are committed to creating classroom environments where students respect and learn from each other.

Basic rules
This class is a creative learning environment. All registrants accept:
respect others in all circumstances
engage in collaborative practices with campers and instructors
use only appropriate language in verbal and written conversations
use the chat box for learning and socializing purposes
do not spam the chat box
not to troll other participants and/or their creations
MODA reserves the right to immediately remove any participant if they engage in conduct that undermines the experiences of other participants and is inconsistent with the course objective.
Let’s keep it fun and educational! Thank you for sharing this information with your young designer!
