Edutopia is one of my favourite educational web resources . Today while I was checking its Five Minute Film Festival page I came across a link that took me to their YouTube channel where I found a treasure trove of interesting videos on digital citizenship and because digital citizenship is one of the important themes in this blog, I decided to handpick some of the clips that grabbed my attention and share them with you below , you can also check the entire list here.
But before that, let me share with you this concise and to-the-point definition that Amy gave to digital citizenship :
“Digital citizenship” is an umbrella term that covers a whole host of important issues. Broadly, it’s the guidelines for responsible, appropriate behavior when one is using technology. But specifically, it can cover anything from “netiquette” to cyberbullying; technology access and the digital divide; online safety and privacy; copyright, plagiarism, and digital law, and more. ” for more resources check out this page.
