Digital citizenship is knowing the appropriate use of technology and making responsible choices when using it. To understand the complexity of digital citizenship, Mark Ribble has identified nine elements that together define Digital Citizenship. These can be grouped into three categories:
Digital Rights and Responsibilities: Understand basic digital rights to privacy, freedom of speech, etc.
Digital Safety and Security: Know how to protect your information from outside forces that might cause you 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 excessive technology
