July 17, 2016
Today’s students spend a tremendous amount of time navigating the web. Internet has become a central part of their everyday life; from socializing to doing research, digital natives are in a constant state of connectedness. Whether this has good or nefarious impact on students learning is out of the scope of this short post. What we are interested  in is how students can use their online (and offline) time in a responsibly ethical way, a concept at the core of what is now known as Digital Citizenship. In the visual below we created and shared a few years ago, we walk you through some key ideas in digital citizenship. This work is based on posts we have been publishing in ‘digital citizenship section’ here in EdTech and mLearning and  on Jason Ohler’s book "Digital Community, Digital Citizen".
