What is a responsible digital citizen?

A responsible digital citizen, as described by Common Sense Education, encompasses all of the following traits through their online presence:

  • Identity: Digital citizens are mindful of how they represent themselves online, maintaining a positive and authentic online identity.
  • Privacy & Security: They take measures to protect their personal information and online accounts, ensuring their online activities are secure from potential threats.
  • Relationships & Cyberbullying: Responsible digital citizenship fosters healthy online relationships and are vigilant against cyberbullying, treating others with respect and empathy.
  • Copyright & Fair Use: They respect intellectual property rights, acknowledging and following copyright laws when using and sharing digital content.
  • Information Literacy: Digital citizens possess the skills to critically evaluate and discern credible information from misinformation and fake news, promoting digital literacy.
  • Digital Footprint: They are aware that their online actions leave a trace, and they manage their digital footprint by making responsible choices and being mindful of the consequences.

Understanding how to be a good digital citizen is crucial for the younger generation, as it helps them navigate the online world effectively. It helps them navigate the internet with awareness and responsibility. When adults set a positive example by commenting respectfully and critically evaluating information, it sets a standard for students to follow, promoting a safer and more constructive online environment for all.
