Digital Responsibility is a broader way of operating in a safe and secure manner when online. Each individual leaves a digital footprint when online – and knowing how to tell if you are entering a secure site is important to your safety and the safety of beneficiaries. With the proliferation of so many online sites – both social sites and shared sites, it is critical that employees understand their own digital footprint. In the nonprofit sector, working with vulnerable populations means the safety and security of those individuals is a moral imperative. Employees need to identify secure sites, as well as weigh the benefits and risks of giving information across devices through software. Developing a positive online identity, and building a positive digital reputation in a safe manner, will lead to skills around Digital Responsibility.
As part of the Digital Skills Framework, we offer the below information to help you with your journey to digital proficiency. Each category has three sections:
Each of the learning items has a marker in the upper left corner. Grey is for basic getting started learning, blue is for the next step in building skills, and orange is for proficiency level learning.
We hope this helps you get started on your journey and we welcome your feedback and suggestions to make this a better place for digital skills. Is something missing that you would like to add? Use this form to propose new learning content for the Digital Skills Framework.
