The 7 characteristics of a digitally competent teacher

Being a proper digitally competent teacher is not as simple as picking up an iPhone and tweeting. You need to be a good digital citizen, understand privacy, and more.

In an effort to clarify and explain some of the most important characteristics that a digitally competent teacher must have, we whipped up this fun visual.
