Tool 11

Digital Citizenship

Understanding 'digital citizenship' is a huge part of all technology use! After reading about the different facets of digital citizenship, it perhaps should be the first thing we think about before using any internet site/device. When I first started this blog, being digitally safe was one of my main concerns.

Students using technology as part of their overall learning should definitely be taught about digital citizenship. Three things about digital citizenship I would want to make sure students know about are: digital security(personal safety), law (responsibility and respect), and etiquitte (netiquette:). I would teach these through modeling and explaining that even in the digital 'world' we are responsible for our safety and actions.; our 'community circle' becomes vastly larger on the internet, but same societal rules apply.
