Who is a digital citizen?

You! 
Basically, a digital citizen is anyone who uses digital tools such as computers, cell phones, or the internet in their work, school or for recreation.  Just like citizens of a city have to adopt rules and standards of behavior in order to live together, those of us in the digital world should do the same.
