Purpose The purpose of this study is to examine digital citizenship education in other countries and to suggest future directions for digital citizenship education. Through this, it is intended to provide implications for curriculum revision and subjects related to digital citizenship. Method In order to achieve the purpose of this study, websites, papers, and books were analyzed. In the EU, digital citizenship education presented by the Council of Europe was examined. In the UK, I analyzed the Connected World of the UK Council for Internet Safety. In Australia, I looked at two institutions: the New South Wales Department of Education and the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child. Common Sense, a nonprofit organization in the US, Smart Media that is a center for digital and media literacy in Canada, and DQ Institute in Singapore were also analyzed. Results Based on the examination of digital citizenship education in other countries, it was found that they emphasize responsibility within the digital society by paying attention to the connectivity of the digital society. For safety in the digital society, education in understanding the digital society and its characteristics is proposed. In addition, the rights within the digital society are considered important in protecting the digital rights of the self and others. Conclusion Since digital use is not limited to schools, education connected with home and society is necessary. For this, digital citizenship education for parents is needed. It is also necessary to recognize the importance of cultivating digital citizenship in society. In addition, it is necessary to develop a variety of educational material and educational programs that can be used in schools, homes, and organizations.
