Website Wednesday: What is Digital Citizenship?

by Kristie Burk

On Monday night, I participated in the #edtechchat on Twitter.  The topic was on digital citizenship.  There were some great ideas shared, but the question remained – what exactly is digital citizenship?  Is it following fair use laws? Is it knowing how to communicate professionally in an email? Is it understanding how to do research online?  The short answer is yes, yes, and yes!

I love how puts digital citizenship into nine categories: digital commerce, digital access, digital communication, digital literacy, digital etiquette, digital law, digital rights and responsibilities, digital health and wellness, and digital security. You can read more details about each one on the website.

The website also provides some good resources for integrating digital citizenship into the classroom. Do you have any good resources for digital citizenship in your classroom? Let us know!
