The website provides a useful introduction to digital citizenship, and features Mike Ribble's 9 factors of digital citizenship. The website links to useful related websites, and sites a number of publications, although that page needs to be updated. The site is easy to use, and the links work. Its potential as a teaching and learning tool is best used as a reference resource to introduce the concept of digital citizenship. Students can explore the linked resources, and share their findings. The target audience appears to be classroom teachers. It should be noted that Mike Ribble is well known in this field, and presents and publishes regularly in this area.
