How can I teach my students about digital citizenship Understanding how to use the internet has become a cornerstone issue for students. No longer do they complete their research on projects solely in the library. Now, there is a vast landscape of resources available on the internet. But with wealth comes responsibility. As soon as children begin to visit the online world, they need the knowledge to do that safely, securely, responsibly.

What are the components of a digital classroom? From eBooks to smartboards, iTunesU implementation to online learning, the classroom as we know it is changing. It’s true that a digital classroom is a vague idea.

Writing teachers like me (and perhaps like you) have been caught in a tight spot for some time now.
