Digital Citizen Staged Activity Badge

Digital Citizen badge

Complete every task to achieve Stage 1, showing that you have thought about the potential risks and how to stay safe for each activity.

  1. In a creative way of your choice, map out your regular digital actions, such as searches, clicks or posts.

    Discuss with other young people the information you leave behind as a result of these digital actions, and whether that’s OK or not.

  2. Learn how to create a secure password and make one of your own.

    Always do this with a trusted adult.

  3. Share three ways young people can respond positively when someone’s being unkind or dishonest, including telling an adult if someone’s making you feel uncomfortable.
  4. Use an online service to learn a new skill and show others what you’ve learnt.

Requirements can be adapted to suit each young persons abilities. See our guidance on flexibility.
