Tool # 11

I think digital citizenship is a very important piece while using technologies resources in the classroom. Setting up the rules on how to use technology is just one part. Students need to know that besides games there are other uses for the computer. Students also have to be aware that not all the information encountered in the internet is real.
Teachers at all school levels must create “thinkers” or students capable to develop an own criteria when using information from the internet.
Establishing contact with people over the internet may not be very safe either, young students should be aware the risk it represents.
Etiquette also becomes part of the digital citizenship as students need to know how to interact with others.
