Abstract: Digital Citizenship is a part of the new civil rights. Students, teachers and the educational community need to have the resources to comfortably be on line and to set policy within a school, a district and a learning community.Teaching cyber safety in school is a tremendous challenge. Try as we may, lecturing to students who know more about technology than the teacher is not going to make our children cyber safe. On top of that, adding additional curriculum to an already overburdened teacher's job is problematic at best. Here in the U.S., pressures to perform on standardized tests and meeting the federal mandates have already had negative impact on arts, music and education in other areas. The last thing teachers need today is another underfunded mandate.
