Defining and measuring youth digital citizenship

http://journals.sagepub.com.ezphost.dur.ac.uk/doi/pdf/10.1177/1461444815577797

This article introduces a survey for digital citizenship in 11-17 year olds. It seems to me a bit more nuanced, and realistic, than some others I’ve seen which just ask yes/no questions about political activism.

They also mention a couple interesting projects:

‘…websites like TakingItGlobal (https://www.tigweb.org/tiged/) provide educators with opportunities to connect with other classrooms around engaging students to help solve global challenges.’

‘…organizations such as the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) (http://www.civicyouth.org/tools-for-practice/learning-community) provide tools for engaging youth in a range of civic learning opportunities.’
