Being digital citizens

Email from colleague Janet Burstall about a ‘Cybernite’ held at her daughters school (for parents and students) regarding being a digital citizen- great initiative. Wonder how many other schools are doing this? Time we (DET) thought of putting together a reference package for guiding discussion. Posts such as Ewan McIntosh’s and intiatives such as MGS and some previous, would help frame this. Need to be careful here -its not just about Internet safety – (implying we are passive recipients of information/media) but rather discussing how we can be active participants in social networking environments which we will continue to evolve- and in the process define ourselves (both collectively & individually) as C21 citizens.
