Student Decision Making - Digital Citizenship

I recently ran across this web page. It is chuck full of articles - some more interesting than others - but certainly a lot to think about.

Summary: Welcome to the Digital Citizenship Website
Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers and technology leaders understand what students should know to use technology appropriately. But Digital Citizenship is more that just a teaching tool, it is a way to prepare students for a society full of technology. Too often we are seeing students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology. The issue is more than what the users do not know but instead what is considered appropriate technology usage.

Digital Citizenship Today
Now is the time for educators as well as other adults to begin to evaluate how they are using technology. Within this website are many examples of how educators can begin the process of teaching their students how to use technology more appropriately. These resources can be used by any adults who are interested in helping students better understand appropriate technology use.

If you find an article particularly helpful or informative, please post a comment by clicking on "comments" at the bottom of this post.
