Digital Citizenship

Whether 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 students. With the growth of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and 1:1 initiatives in schools there is a need to talk about responsible use of technology.

This site helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. The Nine Elements section identifies nine areas or topics that need to be addressed.

The topics brought up here can be included in an Acceptable Use policy or, better yet, taught alongside the introduction of the policy.
