Effective beginning teachers require the digital citizenship and digital literacy skills that will enable them to participate ethically and safely, and teach effectively, in complex, digitally saturated classroom learning environments. It is increasingly important that initial teacher education providers ensure their students are able to develop the ‘Digital Literacies’ required for effective participation as digital citizens, use a range of digital technologies to support teaching and learning, and subsequently prepare their own students for safe, active participation in the digital world. This paper illustrates how digital citizenship has been woven throughout a Graduate Teacher Education qualification at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, includes the successes and challenges identified after the first year of delivery, and recommendations for tertiary institutions interested in weaving digital citizenship throughout their teacher education qualifications.
