Abstract: As technology advances, so do the techniques for abusing it. While traditional crime has not increased in some countries, cyber crime are becoming increasingly common and steadily growing. One of the duties of educators is to teach the learning community about digital citizenship so everyone can understand, address, and prevent technology abuse. This paper defines digital citizenship, discusses its ramifications on individuals and the learning community at large, and recommends strategies for digital citizenship education.
