What is digital citizenship and why does it matter?

Digital citizenship is the continuous development of the skills on appropriate, responsible, and empowered use of technology. These skills include helping people to:

  • Discern fact from fiction,
  • Build healthy relationships,
  • Stay safe,
  • Find greater wellbeing,
  • Build resilience,
  • Lead with empathy,
  • Communicate across diverse cultures,
  • Respect other perspectives,
  • Think critically about how they can contribute to society, and
  • Work together to make positive progress, online and off.

We all play a part in creating responsible digital citizens and building a brighter digital future.
