Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users for a society full of technology. Too often we are seeing students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology, but not sure what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what is considered appropriate technology usage.

Acceptable use and appropriate use of the Internet is something that both teachers and students must understand.  Educators must be constantly evaluating resources for appropriate use, and modeling for students.  The Leo Baeck Education Center is currently developing an Acceptable Use Policy for students and staff. It will be displayed here when it is ready.
