MetadataShow full item record
Technology in today’s society is ever, changing and with the ability to have readily available Internet access, students have found ways to communicate instantly online. This communication has led to new risk-taking endeavors, motivating the government and educational system to realize the benefits of teaching digital citizenship. Research of peer reviewed journals, articles, books, and web pages were used to review the literature on student technology usage and digital citizenship in education. This review shows that digital citizenship incorporated within everyday lessons has the potential to have an impact on a student’s life, both in and outside of the school environment.
