Digital Citizenship Toolkit

Digital Humanities

About this Project

The purpose of the Digital Citizenship Toolkit is to develop a resource that will inform students about issues surrounding good digital citizenship practise. The toolkit comprises a student textbook as well as an accompanying faculty support book. While our focus is currently on developing the textbook, we envision the faculty support book to focus on how to integrate digital literacy concepts into an already existing course.

The textbook will help students develop a higher-level critical lens with which to navigate the digital realm. We will start by examining participatory culture, online communities, commodification of digital space, content evaluation, remix culture, and effective strategies to aid in digital communication.

The lead author Michelle Schwartz has been instrumental in outlining the scope of the project. The outline for the chapters 2-7 were closely mapped to (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (ACRL, 2015). Two additional chapters on project management and writing for digital projects were later added based on community feedback.
