Promoting digital citizenship is crucial for all educators in schools around the world. This is because successful learning and teaching today involves reaching out beyond the classroom walls to expand possibilities for students to connect, collaborate and create for a global audience. Successful students who can make appropriate and productive contributions in an online environment need to understand and practice the elements of digital citizenship, and to see teachers modelling safe and responsible online practices. Schools and teachers have a vital role to play in ensuring students are ready for the challenges of a digital age society where online actions are essentially permanent and can have an enormous impact on education and future career opportunities.
