Digital Citizenship

Digital citizenship is the continuously developing norms of appropriate, responsible, and empowered technology use. It encompasses digital literacy, ethics, etiquette, online safety, norms, rights, culture and more. Many times, both young and old misuse and abuse technology because they are not sure of what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what is considered appropriate technology usage. Digital Citizenship helps all technology users to understand and use technology appropriately and responsibly.
Digital citizenship focuses on empowering learners to be in community with others in online spaces and showing them that 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.

Good digital citizenship engages learners and shows them how to connect with one another, empathize with each other, and create lasting relationships through digital tools.
Bad digital citizenship, on the other hand, entails cyberbullying, irresponsible social media usage, and a general lack of knowledge about how to safely use the Internet.
Fortunately, almost all of the requirements to be a good digital citizen can be taught in the classroom.

At the end of this course, learners should be able to:

  • Have a deep knowledge about digital citizenship
  • Understand the concept of digital literacy and safety
  • Know the areas of behavior that make up digital citizenship
  • Understand the elements of digital citizenship
  • Know the meaning of networking
  • Understand the concept of personal branding
  • Know the steps to building a personal Brand.
