Discover Social Media and Digital Citizenship
Digital Citizenship is an important element of successful integration of educational technology in the classroom. Explicit modelling and teaching of proper online use, including cyber safety, cyber security and cyber etiquette will help lead our students to be positive and productive citizens in an ever-changing digital society.

Harnessing the power of social media allows classrooms to collaborate and communicate with peers, experts, and organizations. When used appropriately for learning purposes, social media is a platform for communication, social change, activism, global connections and self-directed learning.

Understanding the effective and positive uses of communication and collaboration through social media will support students in learning throughout their lives. Competencies for social media and digital citizenship can be classified according to three main principles: Use,Understand and Create.

Use: Includes basic technical skills and fluency associated with social media.
