"To use technology as a digital citizen, with balance, creativity, relevance and social responsibility."
As a digital citizen, I believe it is important to use technology in balance. While technology at times massages us into oblivion, it’s vital to realize there is a world outside of the technological one. Balance requires vision and knowledge of both figure and ground. As a digital citizen, creativity and relevance are also essential to the use of technology. Creativity fosters imagination and “outside the box” thinking, while relevance keeps technology usage current. Finally, social responsibility applies to citizenship personally, nationally and globally. With responsibility comes commitment and awareness to professional practice and education. Living in a digital culture, we must be responsible citizens.
