Digital Competence and Digital Citizenship



Kia koutou,

Welcome to the Week Four chat.  This week we are exploring Digital Competence and Digital Citizenship.

In your classroom your learning is becoming more blended and seamless between on-line and off-line learning.  We here at Kidsedchatnz want to hear how you are managing this in your classroom and what skills you need to have to be successful.

"Being digitally competent is more than being able to use the latest smart phone or computer software — it is about being able to use such digital technologies in a critical, collaborative and creative way."(The European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens)

"Digital Citizenship can be understood as the skills, knowledge, and values required to be an effective, ethical and safe user of ICT."

To support this weeks chat:

Digital compass is an animated online game to develop digital citizenship skills (yr6-8).

Privacy Pirates is another game to promote staying safe online.


1.What skills do you think you need to be digital competent?

2.How do you search for information online?  What skills do you need to have to be successful?


3.How do you share your online learning with your; peers, teacher, whanau?


4.Do you share you online learning with other classrooms?  If so how and are there any rules your class follows?


5.When you are creating content online, explain what you should do when you want to use other peoples content?


6.What do you do in your classroom to promote being safe online?


7.What are some important things to consider when taking part in Kidsedchatnz?
