Digital Citizenship in Schools - More Than Web Filters?

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”― Alvin Toffler
Digital Literacy is the ability to use information and communication technologies to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information, requiring both cognitive and technical skills. (Source)
Digital Citizenship is the norms of appropriate, responsible technology use. (Source)
Too often schools and educators do little more than hide behind a web filter and leave the digital citizenship to the students. Web filters have their place, but in a digital world, I believe schools and teachers have some responsibility to support students as digital citizens. 

We will be updating our Digital Citizenship Resources here as new resources are discovered. Here are a few of our favorite resources for teachers, parents, students, and schools to support digital citizenship and digital literacy.
