There are nine key elements that help define how to best use technology in every school, home and community. They’re organized into three primary categories:


  • Digital access: Advocating for equal digital rights and access is where digital citizenship starts.
  • Digital etiquette: Rules and policies aren’t enough — we need to teach everyone about appropriate conduct online.
  • Digital law: It’s critical that users understand it’s a crime to steal or damage another’s digital work, identity or property.


  • Digital communication: With so many communication options available, users need to learn how to make appropriate decisions.
  • Digital literacy: We need to teach students how to learn in a digital society.
  • Digital commerce: As users make more purchases online, they must understand how to be effective consumers in a digital economy.


  • Digital rights and responsibilities: We must inform people of their basic digital rights to privacy, freedom of speech, etc.
  • Digital safety and security: Digital citizens need to know how to protect their information from outside forces that might cause harm.
  • Digital health and wellness: From physical issues, such as repetitive stress syndrome, to psychological issues, such as internet addiction, users should understand the health risks of technology.
