Digital citizenship

It's a good idea to talk with your children about how they behave online and guide them to be good digital citizens.

Digital Citizenship refers to the ability to engage positively, critically and competently in the digital environment, drawing on the skills of effective communication and creation, to practice forms of social participation that are respectful of human rights and dignity through the responsible use of technology.

Digital citizenship is often related to the way in which we interact, participate, and engage in our local, national and global communities through digital technology and platforms. Common features of definitions of digital citizenship include nine themes:
