A digital ciCzen: • is a conﬁdent and capable user of ICT • uses technologies to parCcipate in educaConal, cultural, and economic acCviCes • uses and develops criCcal thinking skills in cyberspace • is literate in the language, symbols, and texts of digital technologies • is aware of ICT challenges and can manage them eﬀecCvely • uses ICT to relate to others in posiCve, meaningful ways • demonstrates honesty and integrity and ethical behaviour in their use of ICT • respects the concepts of privacy and freedom of speech in a digital world • contributes and ac&vely promotes the values of digital ci&zenship
Digital literacy or the ability to understand and fully par&cipate in the digital world is fundamental to digital ci&zenship. It is the combina&on of technical and social skills that enable a person to be successful and safe in the informa&on age. Like literacy and numeracy ini&a&ves which provide people with the skills to par&cipate in the work force, digital literacy has become an essen&al skill to be a conﬁdent, connected, and ac&vely involved life long learner.
