Deb and Tom explore this month’s theme of “Digital Citizenship” with Mike Ribble of digitalcitizenship.net. What does it mean? According to Ribble “it is the appropriate repsonsible use of technology.” How does that relate to being a citizen? Or is it that we must expand our traditional ideas of “citizen” to the digital and online world. Join us as we explore the nine elements of digital citizenship and how they apply to each of us.
