Digital citizenship refers to the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use. It encompasses several key components:

1. Online Etiquette: Teaching students the basics of online communication, emphasizing respect, understanding, and thoughtfulness in their interactions on social media, forums, and emails.
