Digital Citizenship: Developing Responsible Online Leaders & Citizens
Digital Citizenship is a user’s appropriate behavior with regard to technology use. Think of it as your online conduct in keeping yourself and other safe by being appropriate and responsible and following online rules and etiquette. From the moment a student is handed a device, he or she should apply their “digital” citizenship skills. Growing up as Digital Natives in a mobile and global learning environment, it is imperative that ALL students, K-12, be taught how to work respectfully with others online, be safe, solve problems, communicate clearly and appropriately, and evaluate online content and resources.
