Digital Citizenship

There is a push in Social Studies for students to become good citizens and learn the concepts behind citizenship, but should we start implementing the ideals of digital citizenship into Social Studies?  Absolutely. Our culture has been permanently changed by the Internet and for students to act appropriately and responsibly on the Internet.  What are their rights? What kind of etiquette should they follow?  What are some security and safety issues?  These are all questions that can be answered through an education with digital citizenship instruction incorporated into it. Something all schools should begin to consider in the age of 21st century learners.
