As education begins to use technology more and more each year addressing the 21st century skill of digital citizenship is becoming more and more important; to help students to learn, communicate and collaborate safely and responsibly. Teachers and students have a responsibility of becoming the best digital citizen in the community it can. Digital citizenship includes having social media etiquette, reporting/preventing cyber bullying, and learning how to protect private information on all digital platforms. School are now shifting to BYOD (bring your own device) as a main move for tech integration in the classroom.
