Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users for a society full of technology. Digital citizenship is the norms of appropriate, responsible technology use. Too often we are seeing students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology but not sure what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what is considered appropriate technology usage.
With the constantly changing integration of technology in our children's lives it is imerative that the concept of digital citizenship be openly discussed. At Mountain View we provide instruction and discussions about the roles and responsibilities of students in the digital world in formal and informal ways.
