What is digital citizenship? Why should educators, students, and parents care?
Today, billions of people all over the planet interact using various technologies. This interaction has created a digital society that affords its members opportunities for education, employment, entertainment, and social interaction. As in any society, it is expected that digital citizens act in a certain way according to accepted norms, rules, and laws. Most of today's students are entirely comfortable with technology, but are they using it appropriately? Do they understand their roles and responsibilities in digital society? How can teachers help students become responsible digital citizens?
Digital Citizenship in Schools is an essential introduction to digital citizenship. Starting with a basic definition of the concept and an explanation of its relevance and importance, the authors go on to explore the nine elements of digital citizenship. They provide a useful audit and professional development activities to help educators determine how to go about integrating digital citizenship concepts into the classroom. Activity ideas and lesson plans round out this timely book.
