7 Habits of Digital Citizenship

7 Habits of Digital Citizenship

  • Be Proactive: I can choose my responses to others online & take responsibility for myself. I understand that the whole world is watching.
  • Begin with the End in Mind: I can make smart decisions: I will never give out my personal information online.
  • I will always ask my parents.
  • Put First Things First: I can do my homework or other chores first and then I can ask my parents if I can play on the computer.
  • Think Win-Win: When I am on the computer, I can solve problems by communicating politely and appropriately with others.
  • Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood: I can listen to and understand more than one point of view. I can understand that my parents and teachers¬†will have rules about my computer time.
  • Synergize: I can learn from others online.
  • Sharpen the Saw: I can balance my computer time with other positive elements in my life such as family time, reading, recreation, and work, etc.
