Re-branding Digital Citizenship
Presented by Tanya Avrith, Technology and Innovation Specialist
Having a concrete digital citizenship plan is critical for all stakeholders (students, teachers, administrators and parents) when rolling out devices. However, digital citizenship education is much more than teaching our students about appropriate use of technology. While there are valid concerns about how it is used, it is our responsibility as educators to embrace the medium and teach our students how to harness it in a positive and meaningful way.
This session will address a framework to get started with teaching digital citizenship in your class/school. Learn ideas on how you can begin to teach your students how to build their digital identities and become caring citizens of a connected world using social media and the web.
