Digital Citizenship in Education

Digital citizenship shouldn’t be a long list of don’ts. It should be about the do’s that help create thoughtful, empathetic digital citizens who can wrestle with the important ethical questions at the intersection of technology and humanity. Those do’s include:

  • Using technology to make your community better.

  • Engaging respectfully online with people who have different beliefs than you.

  • Using technology to make your voice heard by public leaders and shape public policy.

  • Determining the validity of online sources of information.

Digital citizenship goes beyond conversations about personal responsibility. It’s about being active citizens who see possibilities instead of problems, and opportunities instead of risks as they curate a positive and effective digital footprint.

As a district, we are in support of the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) stands for students.
