Digital Citizenship

What is Digital Citizenship?

Most often when people hear the term 'digital citizenship' they think of cyberbullying or other forms of malicious online behavior. But Digital Citizenship goes beyond social behavior to include ethics and attitudes towards all uses of technology. The International Society for Technology in Education identifies Digital Citizenship as the following: {i}

Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to technology and practice legal and 
ethical behavior. 
  • ​​Advocate and practice safe, legal, and responsible use of information and technology
  • Exhibit a positive attitude toward using technology that supports collaboration, learning, and productivity
  • Demonstrate personal responsibility for lifelong learning
  • Exhibit leadership for digital citizenship
