A digital citizen is an individual with skills and know-how to interact efficiently with digital media, to engage in society, to build digital contents, and to consume them. Trust and constructive interaction in emerging technology is a matter of digital citizenship. It involves the adoption and development in support of digital platforms of the principles of acceptable and responsible conduct. This includes the efficiency of the use of new technology and not the abuse of them. Citizenship in digital technology requires the correct internet marking, literacy about how and how digital devices are used, knowing ethics and related laws, knowledge of online safekeeping, and guidance on health and safety-related problems, such as depredators and data permanence. digital citizenship often applies to people who use the Internet routinely and successfully. Both good digital citizenship and poor digital citizenship has a large gap. Strong or good digital citizenship connects young learners and teaches them how to communicate, empathize, and create long-term relationships through digital tools with each other. On the other hand, weak or poor digital citizenship encompasses cyberbullying, imprudent use of social media, and a general lack of understanding of how to allow the responsible use of the Internet. Luckily, it is possible to master almost every need in the classroom to be a successful digital human.
|Three Elements of Framework|
Digital Law- relates to electronic accountability for acts and actions and concerns the creation of laws and regulations that resolve problems relating to the online environment. Much as in the physical world, the online world has had to create a framework to protect people who use these digital technologies from damage. Help for concerns such as cyberbullying and sexting is available from school security officers and other school counsel. Administrators in their colleges and districts need to come up with constructive responses to these issues.
Digital Security and Privacy- is an online safety measure. Much like a plague, viruses, worms, and other bots can be carried along from one machine to another. Understanding and becoming mindful of threats and how to avoid them are valuable skills for now and in the future by using computers in school or at home.
Digital Rights and Responsibilities- are those conditions and protections that are applied to all in the digital world. This field of digital citizenship is about making students realize that as resources are given, such as access to the Internet and the use of online goods, they need to be vigilant about helping others, such as educating adults about possible issues. Educators must make students realize that defending people, both online and in the real world, is important.
