Everyone- parents, teachers and students- can agree that being a "good citizen" is important. We try to teach children these skills early on at home, in the classroom, and even on the playground. Now, our students socialize as much through text messages and Facebook posts as they do in the hallways, and often times these conversations happening outside of the classroom effect the environment inside of the school as well.

While we are all aware of cyberbullying, are we also taking the time to teach kids about internet safety, being informed consumers with internet commerce, or what is or is not okay with digital intellectual property rights and remix?

How do you define a good digital citizen, and how do we teach these skills? When should we start teaching skills to students? Are these skills that parents need to take on, or are they something integral to the classroom?
