Students and adults are learning to navigate this new “nearly now society.” Digital citizenship requires a balanced mindset between electronic and face-to-face interactions. Alec Couros gives guidance and tips for connecting and creating an online identity and developing digital citizenship.
Alec Couros is an associate professor of educational technology and media at the Faculty of Education, University of Regina, in Saskatchewan, Canada helping others take advantage of the incredible opportunities in our connected world through the integration of educational technology.
