Knowing About Digital Citizenship

We define digital citizenship as one of the 5 tenets of being a Global Digital Citizen. Digital citizenship means engaging in appropriate and exemplary behaviour in an online environment. While carefully crafted acceptable use policies can be a solution, this tenet is meant to develop a change in mindset about what it means to be safe in a transparent digital world. The essence of digital citizenship is about a shifting of accountability for appropriate behaviour to our students, which fosters independence and personal responsibility.

A good digital citizenship infographic like the one below supports our views of what digital citizenship is all about.
