Why is it important?

Digital civics impacts every part of our lives, and is foundational to a healthy civic society. We need a consistent and reliable framework that can help guide education initiatives so they are useful and relevant to the digital age.


As a school teacher there seemed to be a lot of confusion surrounding how to teach aspects of digital age civics and citizenship. I made this framework to clarify the kinds of skills that would be useful, taking philosophical approaches developed for the digital age, and applying them for practise in education.
