According to Mike Ribble, “Digital Citizenship can be defined as the norms of appropriate, responsible behaviour with regard to technology use.”
Digital Citizenship is a way to teach students the responsibilities related to the use of digital tools and resources and what it means to be a good digital citizen.
Ribble identifies the Nine Elements of Digital Citizenship that create a foundation for helping to educate children on the issues that face them in as increasingly technological world.
Links to free online resources and lessons to teach to these nine elements are available at the TIES website.
If you click on Sitemap [on the left of the TIES page] you will see links to other collections of resources, and although some of these are specifically designed for US schools, it is still an excellent site to bookmark.
Feel free to leave a comment if you have found any of these links useful, or if you have found resources to facilitate the teaching of Digital Citizenship.
