Digital Citizenship: You Can't Go Home Again
Hollandsworth, Randy; Donovan, Judy; Welch, Mary
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v61 n6 p524-530 Nov 2017
In the July/August 2011 edition of "TechTrends," a group of AECT members and academic professionals explored the state of digital citizenship for students in K-12 through an article entitled: "Digital Citizenship in K-12: It Takes a Village." Identified was a significant need for digital citizenship awareness by parents, educators, and students through a series of interviews, exploration of resources, reports, and surveys. In this current article, the purpose is to provide an updated perspective of the state of digital citizenship in the K-12 academic and professional environments as gathered from re-administering the 2010 survey and interviewing experts quoted in the 2010 article. Results showed the need for teaching digital citizenship at an earlier age, improved digital citizenship awareness by both educators and administrators, and a continued focus on the misuse and abuse of technology.
