Digital Citizenship Course: Introduction

Students attending this course will learn digital etiquette, how to carry respect and tone in their writing and topics to avoid.

Digital Citizenship Course :Course Outline

Anyone who has ever logged onto the internet is a digital citizen. As with each country’s rights and privileges that accompany citizenship to that country, digital citizenship also has rights and responsibilities that come with it. In this workshop we intend to achieve several outcomes with regard to digital citizenship. These are using technology appropriately, how to use social networks to create your brand, how to protect your reputation online, how to practice the safe use of technology and to understand digital etiquette. This course also links back to the course on cyber security, Lockdown for the layman. TIP: When engaging others online remember to be patient; to ask and answer questions to begin a discussion; don’t spam people and lastly; build new friendships and maintain existing friendships. Digital citizens need to be mindful of what they share, who they share it with and how they share it. At times our country can be a racial boiling pot. People share before they think and others who wish to stir the pot make posts go viral so that as many people as possible can be incensed by an inappropriate post or comment. That was never the use that social media was meant to be and good digital citizens who practice good netiquette could and should act. Do expect people to see what you share, if extending your name is important, it will be important to post positive posts where people can come together and discuss topics in a polite fashion. People tend to react better to positive posts, rather than the daily nag. Do introduce your colleagues on your social media platforms and volunteer to help others with their branding. Guard your reputation online by posting yourself and only share from legitimate sites. Do use the social networks that your customers use most often, you can’t cover all of them, you need to do your research and focus on the top three or four. If you blog, make sure that access to your blog is guarded by the website hosting it. Don’t trust a website you don’t know just like you wouldn’t trust a person you don’t know in the real world. Participants will learn digital etiquette, how to carry respect and tone in their writing and topics to avoid. We will also teach participants what to do if they have posted something they shouldn’t have, how to minimize the damage. 1. Introduction
