Digital World Citizenship

Güncelleme tarihi: 23 Tem

Another concept that emerges with rapidly developing communication technologies is digital world citizenship, or digital citizenship in short. A digital citizen refers to a person who can criticize while using communication technologies, knows the ethical consequences of their online behavior, can take moral decisions when necessary, does not abuse communication technologies, and encourages the right behavior when communicating and cooperating in the digital world.


There are nine components of digital citizenship. These components are designed to enable educators to better understand digital citizenship and convey it to their students in the most accurate way. It is a framework set by Mike Ribble. The most important feature of this framework is that it is contemporary and focused and designed in a flexible structure.


1. Digital Access (It is the individual's ability to access and view the data on the Internet.)

2. Digital Commerce (It is the individual's ability to buy digital and physical products in exchange for money within the framework of laws and regulations.)

3. Digital Communication (Individuals have the opportunity to exchange information equally and fairly through communication technologies.)

4. Digital Literacy (It is the ability of an individual to find, understand, analyze, produce and share information via network devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, etc.)

6. Digital Law (It is all digitalized legal facts that fall outside the principle of fairness and judgment.)

7. Digital Rights and Responsibilities (It is the freedom of the individual to access, create and publish information in digital media via computers and other electronic devices or communication networks.)
