When we talk about Digital Citizenship &/or Digiteen we are
talking about the fact of how to use the internet in a good way that we
don’t misuse it or abuse others by taking an advantage of internet.
Digital citizenship has 9 main rules, which if you follow you will be
the perfect digital citizen.
These days we use Internet in our everyday lifetime. We use
Internet from the minute we wake up when we check our emails and
see the news till we head to bed. In the modern days every single
school uses technology to stop cutting down trees and start using the
technology we have by posting up the tasks on the web so we don’t
have to print them on papers and cutting down trees and that is one
advantage of using the internet.
Internet is a really useful tool for us students as well as
teachers and technology users. As internet could be use a useful
advantage it could be really harmful in many different ways, for
example many different countries have most of the websites
blocked because its either inappropriate or it has been detected
with virus and that’s one advantage of having ﬁlter blocks which
blocks the website so everyone is safe and one disadvantage
because people could upload many harmful stuff in the internet
such as how to ﬁnd drugs in a speciﬁc country or how to even
make drugs, pornography etc. This year in IT we are trying to
tell the people around us how technology could be useful and
harmful at times, and indeed for us to become a good digital
citizenship we should always obey the 9 rules.

As you see the nine rules of digital citizenship above,
they all have a meaning to them. In my case we are talking
about digital rights and responsibilities. Lets give some
examples of rights and responsibilities and digital
EG 1) Stealing other people’s usernames and passwords. And
using them in inappropriate ways for example sending bad
emails to other people and then blaming it on the actual
person who owns that email and then that person has to get
in trouble for it, even though he/she didn’t do anything.
Another example would be cyber-bullying, This is a
particular area where people recently are finding
themselves in trouble, it means what we can and can't use
online an how we can use it without effecting others
online in a negative way. This will include, pictures,
