Show Notes Anne Collier #71, “An Educator's Guide to the Emerging, Expanding View of Digital Citizenship”

Anne Collier, the co-director of a nonprofit in Silicon Valley, talks with Vicki Davis about digital citizenship.

Digital citizenship is beyond netiquette, digital safety, and online classroom management.  Citizenship includes participation, a sense of belonging, and rights / responsibilities.

Bronwyn Stuckey and Marianne Malmstrom with their work on Quest Atlantis are shared as a best practice in her description of digital citizenship.

Anne stresses that digital environments are not separate from physical environments.  Teaching these skills is important, but practicing is imperative.

The biggest issues in this field right now include active and responsible participation.  She advocates working in an online community of practice. Join a learning community in which students rise to the challenge of exercising digital citizenship when allowed to use the tools in their education.

Anne recommends looking at what people have written about citizenship and applying salient points to the digital environment. She tries to focus on social literacy, media literacy, and digital literacy.
