Digital Literacy and Citizenship Training

Effective school and district leaders provide digital citizenship and digital literacy training for students and teachers so that individuals master the proficiencies and fluencies required to meet with success in an increasingly digital culture. By advancing digital citizenship and digital literacy through well-designed programs and practices, these leaders promote opportunities for teachers and students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to engage actively and meaningfully in social, cultural, economic, civic, and academic life in both the present and the future. When a community of learners within a school can access a broad range of digital practices and resources, they can effectively navigate online environments to make and share meaning via different modes and formats. Education leaders who assign priority to the development of digital literacy and digital citizenship develop students who can create, collaborate, and communicate effectively so that they emerge from the educational system ready for the future.
