Digital Citizenship

Digital footprints? Internet safety? Creative copyright? Fake news? There are a lot of topics to teach around digital citizenship. Digital Citizenship Week is a perfect time to remind educators and students what it means to be a good digital citizen.

According to our Iowa BrightBytes data, more educators need to be teaching digital citizenship. This matters because, “Teaching students about digital citizenship prepares students to be responsible global citizens and how to use technology strategically for this purpose” (Ribble, 2012).
