What is a digital citizen?

Drawing from the Key Competencies and Values in the NZ Curriculum and a growing body of research knowledge, NetSafe, in consultation with New Zealand teachers has produced this definition of a New Zealand digital citizen.

A digital citizen:

* Is a confident and capable user of ICT

* Uses technologies to participate in educational, cultural, and economic activities

* Uses and develops critical thinking skills in cyberspaceis literate in the language, symbols, and texts of digital technologies

* Is aware of ICT challenges and can manage them effectively

* Uses ICT to relate to others in positive, meaningful ways

* Demonstrates honesty and integrity and ethical behaviour in their use of ICT

* Respects the concepts of privacy and freedom of speech in a digital world

* Contributes and actively promotes the values of digital citizenship

 

This is a 'bit' from NetSafe's myLGP website. It's part of a collection of resources that help educators to teach effective digital citizenship. Take a look.

Good Curation VS Bad Curation Beth Kanter

Good Curation VS Bad Curation Beth Kanter | Digital School Libraries | Scoop.it

Not all curation is of equal value.  Take a look at this blog post as the basis of some reflection on your curation work.  There are some value judgements here that I don't agree with but I think it is nonetheless worth a read.
