What is digital citizenship?
Digital Citizenship is the ethical and responsible use of technology. We are all learning how to better cooperate in an increasing digital world. Participating in society online can be empowering if we can navigate tech safely.
Why is digital citizenship important?
The Internet is not confined to one device or place. It is everywhere. Empowering children and the adults who care for them with productive conversation about tech will keep them safe, productive, and capable of using tech as a tool.
Digital Citizenship Keeps Kids Safe Online
With students utilizing tech more and more, the importance of keeping them safe online and using tech appropriately is growing exponentially. Students have been told what is right and what is wrong in regards to tech, they know what good and bad behavior looks like online. Our curriculum doesn’t just tell kids what is bad and what is good, it is designed and proven to impact attitudes toward tech. And once the attitude has changed, behavior changes will follow.
Digital Respons-Ability is committed to educating and informing individuals to become empowered digital citizens. We provide education, support programs, and customized services for our professional partners. Through this work we are creating a vision for our community, one that emphasizes knowledge, curiosity, confidence, and competency.
