Empowering digital citizenship through mobile technology

Steve Vosloo

According to Wikipedia , “A digital citizen refers to a person utilizing/using information technology (IT) in order to engage in society, politics, and government participation.” The benefit of digital citizenship is engagement and I would say, empowerment, for both citizens and government. If citizens have the ability to talk to government and each other, then they must use those channels. Equally, citizens should also make use of government self-service.
