As educators we become and remain digitally fluent and knowledgeable about the emerging digital world that our students already embrace by getting in contact with global courses that deal with Edtech trends and digital fluency indicators.It is important to empower students and interact with what they know about digital literacy that could be introduced into other classes with positive effects.
Collaborative works and query based activities that solve problems could help to model digital citizenship especially those that lead to discussion and reflection.If we can scaffold students in synchronous teaching , it is easier to teach them how to build a positive and active footprint away from the risks of unsafe and irresponsible internet usage.
We can collaborate with other educators around the world to learn more about digital citizenship by advising them to connect with other teachers through communities, circles ,groups and social networks to establish plnetworks of professional development. Within those groups they would find curators and apps that link to them to be updated and scaffolded.
