Defining Digital Citizenship

According to the Council of Europe, Digital Citizenship should be defined as :

The competent and positive engagement with digital technologies (creating, working, sharing, socialising, investigating, playing, communicating and learning); participating actively and responsibly (values, skills, attitudes, knowledge) in communities (local, national, global) at all levels (political, economic, social, cultural and intercultural); being involved in a double process of lifelong learning (in formal, informal and non-formal settings) and continuously defending human dignity.

Digital Citizenship Education is the empowerment of pupils/students through education and concerns the acquisition of competences for learning and active participation in digital society.

The Council of Europe has produced a teachers handbook for Digital Citizenship Education Download the Handbook
