Digital Citizenship

What is it?

In this digital era we use technology daily and in doing so we are part of many communities all over the world. Being a digital citizen (online) like being a citizen in a country (physical) means we need to think, teach and demonstrate what a good citizen looks like and understand we are all responsible for our consumption, actions, and behavior online.   Think before we click!

As Terry Heick explains:

'the more and more students interact digitally–with content, one another, and various communities–the concept of digital citizenship becomes increasingly important.'
