This page will share commentary and insights on the concept of “Netizenship”.
Netizenship, like citizenship, is not merely about “being safe” in person or online. Netizenship is a learning journey wherein the individual strives to become more aware, not only of their rights, but also of their responsibilities to others in society, moving from a “Me to We” consciousness in person and online. Once this awareness takes hold, Netizens begin to think about how they can use ICTs to benefit others. In my mind, it is these acts of altruism and engagement that defines the Netizen. It would be my hope to have http://www.netizenship.net become a community that shares programs, projects and related resources that can help educators, parents and others who work with youth, to model, encourage, support and inspire young people to become Netizens!
