Digital Citizenship Means Character Education for the Digital Age
Ohler, Jason
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v48 n1 p25-27 Fall 2011
The reality of students' cyber lives has thrust upon educators a new approach: creating character education programs tuned to digital youth that are both proactive and aggressive. Taking this approach will help integrate students' digital activities within the context of the communities in which they live, both local and digital. The digital age beckons educators to usher in a new era of character education, aimed directly at addressing the opportunities and challenges of living a digital lifestyle. The author talks about character education for the digital age. He discusses the role of an "ideal school board" who is ready to take on the task of creating academic and character education programs tailored for raising an intelligent, caring generation of students who understand the responsibilities and opportunities associated with living a digital lifestyle. This ideal school board engages in a number of processes to harmonize its mission and programs with the digital frontier.
