DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP — SEVENTH THEMATIC TRACK FOR ICEGOV 2017
Government of India with UNESCO and the United Nations University's unit on policy-driven electronic governance (UNU-EGOV) are organizing the 10th edition of ICEGOV – The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance – in March 2017, in New Delhi.
The objectives of the ICEGOV series resonate with the participative and inclusive ethos and intent of our FLAGSHIP DIGITAL INDIA PROGRAMME, which, under the guidance and leadership at the highest levels in the country, has amplified the focus on e-governance with major thrusts on infrastructure for electronic connectivity, access to e-services in real time, and digital empowerment of citizens.
ICEGOV events feature rich academic, capacity-building and network programme of keynote lectures, plenary discussions, paper tracks (that include tutorials, paper sessions and workshops), thematic sessions, invited sessions, poster exhibitions, and doctoral colloquia, all built from submitted or invited contributions by researchers and experts from around the world.
ICEGOV2017 invites submissions of original work including research, experience or both, not published or considered for publication elsewhere, that contribute to the conference theme “Building Knowledge Societies - From Digital Government to Digital Empowerment”. The submissions can be targeted at one of the several defined tracks.
Digital citizenship refers to the norms of appropriate and responsible use of technology i.e. it defines what is considered appropriate technology usage. It is a concept which helps technology leaders, teachers and parents to understand what technology users, students and children should know to use technology appropriately. It provides a way to prepare different categories of technology users for a society full of technology. Discussions about digital citizenship are gaining momentum around the world due to the increasing need to guide different categories of technology users on how to act when online and what to teach to the next generation. With the growth of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and 1:1 initiatives in schools, there is a need to talk about responsible use of technology.
