Upon further reflection after completing my online training Connect.ed I can see the importance of the inclusion of Digital Citizenship in education. Digital Citizenship is all about staying safe online as well as contributing positively and displaying appropriate behaviour.
The training also made me aware of a great website full of resources with lessons for helping me to enable and educate my students to become safe digital citizens. What a great resource once again to explore and utilise in a world that is so rich with ICTs. The reality of increased bullying due to engagement in the cyber world is harsh but to take this on with a positive attitude through education is the key message.
