2. To reveal and synthesise the digital citizenship competencies of students in Asia-Pacific.
3. To better understand and synthesise the digital citizenship competencies of teachers in Asia Pacific.
4. Synthesise findings and observations at student and teacher levels.

In order to achieve these goals, four methodologies will be employed:
1. Systematic literature review
2. Desktop review
3. Synthesis of DKAP and teacher capability data
4. School simulation through the use of synthetic quantitative controls on cross-sectional databases.
