Digital citizenship is the "norms of behavior with regard to technology use."
Digital citizenship refers to citizens of the Internet (netizens) "who use the Internet regularly and effectively" in a responsible, legal and ethical manner.
"Concepts associated with digital citizenship include what we, as citizens, should do to use technology appropriately across the lifespan. Many educators emphasize, however, that digital citizenship is more about a proper mindset and worldview than a set of discrete tasks. Further, we should be preparing learners for a future fully steeped in online technologies. In other words, in digital citizenship, a sound philosophical approach and a values-based approach are more important indicators of a citizen of good standing than any awareness or use of specific technologies."
