Beyond Digital Citizenship
We are in the midst of the greatest information and communications transformation in human history. Entertainment, commerce, education, healthcare, and communication have all been radically upended by the internet. However, the majority of institutions do not address the complete picture of what the internet is, how we affect it, and how it affects us. This talk will address how we can guide teachers and students to engage positively and creatively with the internet, rather than mainly focusing on the negative aspects of social media and fake news.
