The development of information and communication technology is continuously reshaping the methods of teaching and learning in the digital age. A review of the changes in Japanese information ethics education reveals that a transformation is taking place in the education of information ethics literacy, primarily focused on network etiquette and moral constraints. Digital technology has created a second identity for citizens in virtual society and has also shifted information ethics education from self-protection to a form of digital citizenship education with critical thinking. This transformation is positively influenced by the digital society's impact on citizen identity, making its development inevitable and set to revolutionize the methods and content of citizenship education globally.
