Digital Citizen has to do with the rights and responsibilities.

BBC News website is speaking to people who have had their creativity transformed by digital technology. Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers and technology leaders understand what students should know to use technology appropriately. But Digital Citizenship is more that just a teaching tool, it is a way to prepare students for a society full of technology.

It seems that digital citizenship is about using technology appropriately, and not misusing or abusing technology. A good digital citizen woulf make sure that they use technology the way it was designed to be used.


A lack of fear to use digital devices does not necessarily correspond to an ability to appropriately and ethically use those digital devices for communication, collaboration and publication. We live in the "publish at will" era, when anyone with a cell phone or a computer can become a citizen journalist for an international audience. Simply banning cell phones and network access to MySpace is an insufficient response on the part of school leaders to these challenges. In this session we'll highlight the technologies and issues which make conversations about digital citizenship essential in every school and home, as well as ways classroom teachers, administrators, and parents are helping students PRACTICE as well as develop digital citizenship skills. Like a person learning to swim, it's essential we be willing to "get wet" with our personal use of social networking and digital publication technologies if we are to understand these tools and environments. .

Too often we are seeing students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology. The issue is more than what the users do not know but instead what is considered appropriate technology usage.
