A Simple Acronym For Encouraging Digital Citizenship



Digital citizenship, as we’ve theorized, has something to do with the “The quality of habits, actions, and consumption patterns that impact the ecology of digital content and communities.”

In education, we love acronyms and initialisms–IEP, PLC, PLN, GT, PGP, ECE, etc. They can help us reduce wordiness, or remember details or sequence. So here’s one (that we found on an aptly-named pinterest board) to expressly promote digital citizenship that’s a bit less wordy than the one we shared last week.

T.H.I.N.K. digital citizenship before you share anything–an update, a like, an idea, data, a post–online:

Is it True?

Is it Hurtful?

Is it Illegal?

Is it Necessary?

Is it Kind?
