Digital Citizenship

I believe that digital citizenship should be part of classroom curriculum. We need to be teaching ethical use of social media because of the importance today of the social web. The idea that with the growing importance of the social web, students should be taught about digital ethics because whether we like it or not the world around them are changing. I believe it is the role of educators to prepare today’s students for the world of tomorrow. While children are usually savvy when it comes to using new technologies, they aren’t necessarily aware of the issues that come with them. Behavior is as important as know-how, and the framework for this type of curriculum addresses issues like intellectual property, security and privacy. I wonder how many educators discuss ethics with their students?
