As good digital citizens, students need to be educated on the fundamentals behind a responsible and effective use of the Internet. This includes knowledge of how to avoid falling prey to online scams (phishing, identity theft, fraud, etc) and how to act in case they happen; how to appropriately use online content; what or what not to share publicly; how to protect private information (e.g, home address, phone number, email etc); and how to act in an ethical, responsible and positive way online (and of course offline). Critical literacy is key in the teaching of digital citizenship.
