When we are online, we have to be Cyber Smart.  Are you a good digital citizen?


With the advent of social media, mobile devices in the classroom and a range of e-learning tools in the classroom it is more important than ever that students are aware of the long term effects of leaving their digital footprint and learn to become good cyber citizens. 
The concept of digital citizenship needs to be embedded in all aspects of work in schools with e-learning tools.
A good way to start this is to build awareness of what it means to be a good citizen in our community -  local, national and global.
