Helping children and youth be well and do good in a digital world
What is Digital Citizenship?
Digital citizenship is the ability to participate safely, intelligently, productively, and responsibly in the digital world. (See the Resources Library or categories below for more information about and commonly taught elements of digital citizenship.)
Digital citizenship education should also include safe, mentored experiences to help students practice positive, creative, deliberate use of technological tools and skills (in age-appropriate ways, of course). Over time, youth can learn to create, connect, communicate, and collaborate in ways that make a positive contribution to family, school, and community life.
Utah educators/administrators, Digital Teaching and Learning grant recipients, and School Community Councils: Visit our Positive DigCit page to learn more about how you can help expand digital citizenship education to include more examples of positive uses of technology.
Work with your students (or children) to create, inspire, and do good with technology, then submit their stories to be featured on https://usetech4good.com/!
