The Values of Civic Education through Information Technology

Albi Dode, Elvira Dode

Abstract


Citizenship is closely related to the progressive steps of decision-making process for new education policies being applied in these last years. Once the attention was only focused in writing , reading , and arithmetic , as being enough for a fully educated citizen. Today the citizenship is happily coexisting and shaped by technology. Digital citizenship and democratic citizenship are closely related on the ways how this knowledge is mastered and practiced in order to make this relationship valuable. In order to clearly view citizenship education and digital democracy , first we must have a clear knowledge in the subjects. It has been heard for the implementation of new technologies in the classroom as part of European Union recommendations. This is important as citizens are educated with efficient knowledge in technologies but this is also a civic education as new digital technologies bring together participants and promotes a functioning democracy. In order for this to be fully achieved bias must be avoided and promotion of digital citizenship with its ethical values must be shown to a democratic society. In this way , a new sphere will be available to not only as a digital reality but as a fully comprehensive necessity in order to fully achieve democratic standards.
