Here in the US, today is the start of Digital Citizenship Week, a time to to ensure individuals think critically about what they see online, understand the benefits and risks of sharing information, as well as balancing screen time with other activities.

Schools will promote digital citizenship in the classroom by giving students a range of activities to complete – from discussions on how much screen time is suitable to being mentally prepared for social media and having an online voice.

Our award wining IT asset management solution , NetSupport DNA, enables teachers to promote digital citizenship to students, while keeping them protected. The restriction and controlled access of websites is possible through the internet metering feature, meaning students can have use of the internet whilst only viewing approved content. A ‘Report a Concern’ system is also in place within the internet safety module, providing students’ with a way to communicate with staff about issues they are experiencing.
