Being a Digital Citizen

The ‘digital citizen’ is a person who has developed the skills and knowledge to effectively use the internet and digital technologies, who uses digital technologies and the internet in a responsible and appropriate way in order to engage and participate in society and politics

Activity: Watch the video and make a note of the main issues you face as a teacher using data with your students and for your pupils when using information.

We live in a world where the use of digital technology has become the norm. Effective participation in our society increasingly requires our ability to engage online and with digital data. This isn’t just a question of technical ability – just as with our physical society, there are appropriate and responsible behaviour we need to acquire.
