We hope that you have enjoyed these lessons on Digital Citizenship! We believe that if the children of the World learn the importance of their online behaviors while they are young, they stand a chance at not endangering themselves online, both now and in the future. The kids of the current generation are truly Digital Natives. They have never known a time that the Internet did not exist. They live their lives in a world saturated with connected devices and instant access to information. We, as teachers, need to prepare them for the challenges that come with such access.
