Digital citizenship is an essential component of digital literacy. Being a digital citizen goes beyond knowing how to use technology and social media to respecting, sharing, participating and using the net effectively.

Digital citizenship is a code of behaviour,an etiquette that organizes and protect our digital identity. It is a prerequisite for any plans of  technology integration in education. Students need to learn how to use the web respectfully and in doing so they will also be learning the core of digital literacy.

Educational  Technology and Mobile Learning has a section devoted to materials and resources teachers need to teach digital citizenship. Below is a wonderful video clip to add to this section. The video explains in such a great illustration the core concept of digital citizenship. I recommend that you watch and share it with your colleagues and students. Enjoy
