A new perspective of citizenship has entered the public narrative: Digital Citizenship-a term that arises from the need to reconsider who we are in light of the globally connected infosphere in which we find ourselves. This book, for educators, parents, and anyone with an interest in the future of primary and secondary education in a digitally deluged world, addresses the role that schools and teachers can play in exploring, understanding and promoting digital citizenship within their profession as well as their classrooms.

Organized around and aligned to the common areas of interest about digital citizenship from the various standards groups, including ISTE and the 21st Century Skills, it addresses how to manage learning in the digital domain so that we can help students become life long learners who develop perceptions, perspectives and habits of mind that will allow them to navigate the digital age creatively and critically.
