Technology users need to be aware that not everyone has the same opportunities when it comes to technology. Helping to provide and expand access to technology should be goal of all digital citizens. Users need to keep in mind that there are some that may have limited access, so other resources may need to be provided. To become productive citizens, we need to be committed to make sure that no one is denied digital access.”

Technology users should know that a big chunk of market economy is now being done electronically. Participants of online market should be aware of the issues associated with it. Goods and services that are sold online may have conflicts with the laws or morals of other countries (activities such as illegal downloading, pornography, and gambling). Users need to learn about how to be effective consumers in a new digital economy.
Communication in the 21st century offers a wide variety of choices, from email, smart phones, and instant messaging that enabled us to have constant communication with anyone, anytime, anywhere. The drawback however is that many users have not been taught how to make appropriate decisions when faced with so many different digital communication options.
With the fast changing technology, learners must be taught to learn anything, anytime, anywhere. Business, military, and medicine are excellent examples of how technology is being used differently in the 21st century. As new technologies emerge, learners need to learn how to use that technology quickly and appropriately. Digital Citizenship involves educating people in a new way which involves a high degree of information literacy skills.
Most people who use technology do not learn digital etiquette before using it. (i.e., appropriate conduct). And many of us feel uncomfortable talking to others about our digital etiquette. Often rules and regulations are created or the technology is simply banned to stop inappropriate use. It is not enough to create rules and policy, we must teach everyone to become responsible digital citizens in this new society.
Being ethical is to abide by the laws of society the every technology users should be aware of. It must be clear to users that stealing or causing to damage to other’s work, identity, or property online is a crime. Hacking into others information, downloading illegal music, plagiarizing, creating destructive worms, viruses or creating Trojan Horses, sending spam, or stealing anyone’s identify or property is unethical.
Digital citizens have the right to privacy, free speech, etc. Basic digital rights must be addressed, discussed, and understood in the digital world. With these rights also come responsibilities as well. Users must help define how the technology is to be used in an appropriate manner. In a digital society these two areas must work together for everyone to be productive.
Eye safety, repetitive stress syndrome, and sound ergonomic practices are issues that need to be addressed in a new technological world. Beyond the physical issues are those of the psychological issues that are becoming more prevalent such as Internet addiction. Users need to be taught that there are inherent dangers of technology. Digital Citizenship includes a culture where technology users are taught how to protect themselves through education and training.
In any society, there are individuals who steal, deface, or disrupt other people. The same is true for the digital community. It is not enough to trust other members in the community for our own safety. We need to have virus protection, backups of data, and surge control of our equipment. As responsible citizens, we must protect our information from outside forces that might cause disruption or harm
