Digital citizenship (LiDA102) is one of four micro-courses for Learning in a digital age. This micro-course explores the rights and responsibilities of digital citizens in the context of tertiary learning. By working through the material you will gain a good understanding of the interplay among digital environments, your digital identity and the digital identities of others. Digital citizenship represents a constant tension between the potential of digital media for social good and the threat of misuse and appropriation. Consequently, we explore a number of societal issues and problematic online behaviours challenging the potential benefits of digital technology for enhancing the future of learning.
