1. Hi Ananda,

    It’s great you’re doing this! My definition and how I use digital citizenship require much, much more than 140 characters, so I hope you don’t mind my response here. For me, digital citizenship means using social media to inform others and engage in civilized conversation. That engagement piece is the key in all of this. That said, I use my digital voice in a variety of ways. I write about politics, policy, and social media on my blog. On Twitter, I share my ideas, engage with others around the world, and participate in Twitter chats. As a teacher, I encourage my students to use social media. I’ve taught them about digital diplomacy, and I’ve encouraged them to use it to question our elected officials. Some of them even took the plunge and participated in a Twitter chat about the future of NATO! That was an especially proud moment for me. It’s nothing as extensive as that great list you have above, but I like to think I’m still somehow making a difference.

    Keep up the great work!
