Digital citizenship is the norms of appropriate, responsible technology use.
Hand held devices such as cell phones and e-Readers are becoming more common as learning tools in classrooms. As a part of digital citizenship it must be understood that these devices can only be used in a classroom when instructed by a teacher.
During lessons where hand held devices are being used stay focussed on the task and resist using your hand held device for personal use such as texting and checking email which is not a part of the teacher's instructions.
- Privacy of Others: A large number of handheld devices now include cameras. Be considerate of the privacy of others. Taking pictures or video of other people without their knowledge can be inappropriate especially if the intent is to share that content on the internet.
