Getting Started

This unit asks you to explore the concept and practice of digital citizenship and challenges you to share your findings with other members of our community.
Digital citizenship can be described as knowing how to behave appropriately and responsibly with regard to technology use.
Nine elements have been identified that together make up digital citizenship. These are:
  1. Digital Access : full electronic participation in society.
  2. Digital Commerce : the buying and selling of goods online.
  3. Digital Communication: the electronic exchange of information.
  4. Digital Literacy : the capability to use digital technology and knowing when and how to use it.
  5. Digital Etiquette : the standards of conduct expected by other digital technology users.
  6. Digital Law : the legal rights and restrictions governing technology use.
  7. Digital Rights and Responsibilities : the privileges and freedoms extended to all digital technology users, and the behavioural expectations that come with them.
  8. Digital Health and Wellness : the elements of physical and psychological well-being related to digital technology use.
  9. Digital Security & Safety : the precautions that all technology users must take to guarantee their personal safety and the security of their network.

The aim of this unit is for students to explore one of the digital citizenship concepts listed above and, with a partner, create artifacts based on their research and present these via a wiki page(s) to a chosen audience.
