Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare technology users for a society full of technology. Digital citizenship is the norm of appropriate, responsible technology use.  Too often we are seeing students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology but not sure what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what is considered appropriate technology usage. 

The topic of digital citizenship is certainly gaining momentum around the world. Whether the it is called digital citizenship, digital wellness or digital ethics the issues are the same; how should we act when we are online, and what should be taught to the next generation.
