Dean Shareski writes; 'Whenever I hear the term "digital citizenship" I usually am skeptical. When we began using the term several years ago, it typically focused on keeping kids safe online. It was generally a scare tactic that told students that they should be wary of posting anything online because it's forever. The assumption was kids will post inappropriate stuff.
Recently the message has softened and most acknowledge kids are going to be posting online and so the message is about posting only the good stuff.'
