Being a Good Digital Citizen


A good digital citizen is one who does not abuse the internet and the rights of others.  As a good digital citizen students should be aware of what we they are writing and who they are giving the credit.  As a teacher it is my job to teach my students how to be a good digital citizen.  Students should be taught proper netiquette on Social Media Sites.  As today’s students use technology more and more, they should be made aware of what is appropriate and what is not.  They must realize that there are people who could harm them and take advantage of them.  Students should know that being a good digital citizen shows respect for others and their rights. When writing a paper students should be aware of plagiarism and to avoid it.   A good digital citizen shows future teachers and employers they can be trusted and respected.  Learning these skills at a young age will equip them for the future.  For more information on digital citizenship follow this link.  Good Digital Citizenship
