  • Ribbleand Bailey define……..thanks to Mike Ribble for providing a workable entry into digital citizenship in the classroom
  • All students and teachers should conduct themselves in a professional and culturally sensitive manner. This includes the types of avatars they choose, the styles of language they use, and the quality of material they upload. Digiteen Project is a launching pad into this professional learning mode. Here is an example of students solving communication problems themselves.
