How to Positively Navigate the Digital Community

What is Digital Citizenship?

A Digital Citizen is a broad term for someone who participates in the online community, sharing thoughts and information with others on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Digital Citizenship is about being a responsible user of the internet and can cover topics such as "netiquette", online safety, cyber bullying, plagiarism and so much more. With the Internet being so accessible it is important that we educate and emphasize the qualities of a positive digital citizen.
