Exploring Digital Citizenship

I've been thinking a great deal about who a digital citizen actually is and am about to begin exploring this concept with my students.

The following graphic is an interesting one but I'm wondering if it is a generalisation and whether the reality for the students in my class is different to what is presented here.  I've already argued that we are making assumptions that our students are Digital Natives... but that's a post for another time...

Part of my research for my final Masters paper is around building a Community of Practice for my students so there is a lot of reading, planning, thinking and questioning going on for me at the moment. In developing a strong CoP for my students I want to be able to challenge my own assumptions as a teacher and learner and start from scratch to build this community alongside my students.

Stay tuned for many posts and self-reflections on this.....  In the meantime, check out the infographic below and the links and I'd love to read your thoughts on this.
