EdTechReview to Host India's First Digital Citizenship and Internet Maturity Summit

EdTechReview to host India's First Digital Citizenship and Internet Maturity Summit for schools on April 22nd, 2016 in New Delhi.

The summit is going to be India’s first summit to make schools aware on how to foster digital citizenship in the classroom. 

Addressing the 21st century skill of digital citizenship is important; to help students to learn, communicate and collaborate safely and responsibly. Being a best digital citizen in the community includes having email etiquette, reporting and preventing cyber bullying, learning how to protect private information and much more.

We need to make citizens, especially students (kids and teens) capable of utilizing the power of internet for learning; help them understand internet safety to protect themselves from its harmful effects, and grow into mature and ethical digital citizens.
