The integration of a digital citizenship curriculum throughout all disciplines is critical to the successful implementation of 1-to-1 technology programs (Crichton, S., Pegler, K., & White, D., 2012). As students have access to the world at their fingertips, they must develop an age-appropriate understanding of the 9 facets of being a digital citizen; digital security, law, etiquette, rights and responsibilities, commerce, communication, health and wellness, literacy, and access (Ribble, 2011). Schools need to take a proactive approach on this subject matter, rather than waiting for harmful or dangerous situations to arise. If lessons are taught in context and discussed continuously, citizenship in the digital world will be valued the same as citizenship in the physical world (Brazee, 2012). Teachers, administrators, and parents need to set an appropriate example and explain the importance of being a respectful, responsible, and ethical digital citizen.
